Due for the garbage can

  • Excerpt: This lens came with the NX 500 and I have it for 2 months now. The optical quality is average, not bad up to 35mm but not tops either. From 35 to 50mm the lens becomes a little soft and focus is hit and miss. Unfortunately the zooming mechanism is frozen now and the lens does not focus anymore.
  • Cons: Weak Casing

  • Excerpt: I use this lens solely for video on the NX1 and it works great. My review is only regarding video. First off - my lens attaches firmly and snugly to the NX1 with no play whatsoever.

  • Excerpt: Build quality: lens/body slack... On all 3 copies of the NX1/16-50 S I've worked with, there is play between the lens and NX1 body both up/down and side/side. Rotational play is more typical on lenses but even that was extremem enough on one copy that it shifted the field of view slightly when...

  • Summary: I converted from shooting canon L glass for ten years. I got this lens and the Samsung 85mm 1.4 for the nx1. I'm thrilled. I actually get giddy when I go to shoot! Lol. I'm really getting into video do I wanted something that could be amazing at both. Samsung has gone it. No regrets.

Outstanding Lens and a Must with the NX1

  • Summary: I may never take this lens off the NX1. The lens is fast, quiet and produces stunning pictures straight or of the camera. The lens feels substantial in your hands and will elevate the quality of your photography.

Where's the reviews?

  • Summary: Really surprised on the lack of reviews on this awesome lens, just had to stop by and make one myself. This lens while a little pricey is priced competitively with offerings from other manufacturers I think. With an effective 24-75mm (35mm) field of view, it makes a great 'normal' range zoom lens.

  • Excerpt: Really good lens. So far this is the first lens from Samsung with the S logo, and I'm ecstatic that it shows how good my camera is (NX30). The sharpness is amazing and the colour fidelity is superb and I can't believe how well it does in low light.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Heavy
