My preference would be the NX5, because I quite like the images and the feel of it, but the other two are pretty similar – and the Panasonic is available quite cheaply at the moment. They do have manual focus, but I don't like it much because it is a continually rotating dial, not a proper focus ring – so you can't use it to preset distances like you can on a real lens. The Panasonic is quite old now so is it worth buying second hand? probably. I like the NX5 the least – but would be happy with the other two, depending on price.
