Samsung 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 ED OIS NX review by arconovum

arconovum, slrgear.com

  • Summary: I was very disappointed in this lens , not in the optics but in the mechanics. When OIS was enabled a high pitched tone was emitted from the lens in the 10,000 - 11,000 hz (hertz) range, at about 10 dB(decibels), it was very audible and also could be recorded on the cameras microphones , in this case a samsung nx200. Further testing on other lenses (of the same) at the store revealed the same defect.
  • Pros: decent optics
  • Cons: defective mechanics, poor battery life,terrible warranty from samsung

  • Pros: good range, very quiet focus
  • Cons: no motered zoom, heavy

Great lens Samsung 18mm-200mm f/3.5-6.3

Julius, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I have NX10 with the standard lens and 50-200. Both lenses are noisy for video. 50-200 is very sharp and fast. Because this system is for traveling it is more convenient to have the lens which replaces both former ones. I was very glad to find that the lens is made in Japan like all my high end Nikon lenses. It is heavier than my other Samsung lenses, but way more convenient. Upon update of the firmware the camera responds to i function button which this lens has.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

  • Summary: ...it were faster. It's not much use indoors. Be aware that it weights exactly one metric tonne. Three two one.

  • Summary: It's the only lens you need to take when traveling. Simple to use even for a novice like me. Wide to close up - everything you need.

Perfect travel lens for NX owners

  • Summary: This is a lens that can be directly compared with Tamron's 18-200. Not only does it share the same range of focal lengths but also the same f3.5-6.3 maximum aperture range. However, there are no independent brand lenses that offer the NX mount. The two lenses don't look very similar and this one bears all the usual hallmarks of Samsung's lens range. iFn is included as well as a zoom lock and the M-F switch.

I like it

  • Summary: First thing to note: it's pretty heavy. It does throw the balance of the NX1000 off completely, but I guess that is just part and parcel of trying to get a decent sized lens with OIS. I did try the 50-200mm, but the OIS was awful for video, which was a large requirement for me. The OIS on this lens is not perfect by any means, but far better than the 50-200mm.

  • Summary: Schnelle Lieferung Produkt entspricht der Beschreibung Produkt zeigte keine Mängel Funktioniert tadellos Verpackung war unbeschädgt und in Ordnung Ich kann eine Kaufempfehlung aussprechen Das Objektiv ist jedoch so groß, dass es einen Schatten wirft, wenn man den üblichen Blitz für die NX 1000 Kamera verwendet.

Besser als erwartet!

  • Summary: Ich habe mir lange überlegt, ob ich dieses Objektiv kaufen soll, schon allein wegen des Preises, bei 500 Euro habe ich es dann gewagt. Im Praxiseinsatz hat mich zunächst überrascht, dass mich die Größe und das Gewicht - anders als befürchtet - überhaupt nicht stören. Gerade beim Fotografieren im Telebereich hat es durchaus seine Vorteile, etwas mehr in der Hand zu halten.

Solider Reisezoom mit starker Abbildungsleistung - bestes NX-Video-Objektiv!

F_HB, Amazon

  • Summary: Vorab: Das Samsung NX Tele 50-200mm machte ebenfalls top Bilder, was mich allerdings im Alltagsbetrieb störte, war der Anfangsbereich von 50mm, was bspw. beim Sightseeing schon "sehr nah dran" ist und das Objekt oftmals eben nicht ganz erfasst. Da ich aber ungerne auf Reisen drei oder mehr Objektive mitnehmen wollte, entschied ich mich für das L18200MB, auch wenn viele einem ja generell von Reise-Zooms abraten, v.a.
