Excerpt: I bought the lens for the sole purpose of using it when traveling abroad. So far, it's been a great lens to use for any occasion, be it for landscape or portraits. The quality of the lens and its ease of use is what let me to give it 5 stars. Definitely recommend for any beginner photographers! : )
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction

Excerpt: Great lens for the price, its been fun having a small low weight camera kit I can carry around everywhere again. (NX1 18-55 and the 45 1.8) I even use it for work with the NX1 on the Ronin M gimbal. once you stop it down a couple stops its as sharp as any pro lens, just need enough light to do it.
Excerpt: I'm using this lens with the NX to NX-M adaptor on an NX mini. This lens is way sharper than the 9-27mm kit lens that came with the camera. On the NX mini it good for basic shooting and telephoto use. Paired with the NX-M 9mm pancake lens I have all I need for a good day's shooting.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: I've been using the kit lens ever since I purchased my Samsung NX300 last year. I finally decided to buy a new one and went with this one based on reviews that said this lens basically became people's go-to lens. I couldn't agree more! I love this lens. It's so easy to use and still pretty small.
Excerpt: I originally bought the Samsung NX300 with the 20-50 lens, thinking the smaller lens is better but I found that were were times when it just fell short of what I wanted so I finally got the 18-55. Overall, this is NOT a professional-grade camera and, therefore, the lens is not professional grade.
Excerpt: Samsung cameras rely on their lenses for image stabilization. I like the pancake and other prime lenses, but without any image stabilization, it makes shooting without a tripod significantly more difficult.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: I bought the Samsung NX1000, and wanted to replace the 20-50 kit lens that came with it. This 18-55 mm optically stabilized lens gives me the ability to use manual focus and control the camera settings from the lens itself, neither function available with the kit lens, and is very reasonably priced.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I just got this for my NX100, which came with the also very good 20-50mm lens. However, the 20-50mm does not have IS built in, so I've had some issues with sharp results at lower shutter speeds.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: This lens is pretty much a must have for the samsung nx camera line. The optical image stabilization is a great feature, and it is an internal focus lens wich makes it a quieter, and much stronger lens than the stock 20-50 lens that came with my nx1000.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
