  • Conclusion: The 18-55mm OIS Zoom NX Lens is one of two kit lenses for Samsung's NX camera system. Bundled with your camera, it's a good value, but purchased on its own, it's overpriced.
  • Pros: Optically stabilized. iFn control button. Silent focus.
  • Cons: Soft at 18mm f/3.5. Distortion when zoomed in.
