Excerpt: Great for low light, good autofocus but I keep it in manual focus. Lightweight and portable. Deff a good option if you don't wanna spend the money for the 85mm f/1.4. I'm sure the 85mm is a better portrait lens, but being more into landscape and macro photography, this more then exceeds my needs for a portrait lens.
Excerpt: Amazingly sharp, fast lens. Thing about this is, I think that Samsung is finally catching up their camera bodies to take more advantage of the quality of their lenses. I hope Samsung keeps it up, I am loving their products!
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Summary: A camera cannot be better than the lens that is on it, no matter how good or expensive the body is. And the Samsung 45mm lens yields images that are sharp and pretty darn close to perfect. It is among the best consumer lenses out there. It is not to be confused with the other 45mm lens produced, the 2d/3d. This is the "normal" lens. It focuses very well, images are very sharp. Auto-fucus works flawlessly.
Pros: Light, good build, very sharp, very practical view angle for general photography
Cons: manual focus by wire: no tactile feedback, no indication of where you are (if past target and reached closest or infinity)
Excerpt: As the headline states I am in love with this lens. It takes beautiful photos even in low light situations. The bokeh is quite nice as well. Much better than the kit lens. I was almost ready to throw in the towel and sell my camera thinking either it was just not capable of taking clear photos or that I myself was to blame. Nope it was just a matter of getting the right lens. So worth the investment.
Excerpt: This is hands-down my go-to lens, and I keep it wide open at f/1.8 most of the time. The color saturation, sharpness, and ability to capture fairly wiggly (e.g. pets) objects in low light via handheld grip is impressive. Since I started using this lens, my two variable aperture stock lenses pretty much never see any use.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I took this lens with me for a photography club outing in a small city and thought I would only use it briefly...well I didn't take it off the whole day! Loved what I saw immediately! Great for city outings and low light areas. I used at at the aquarium and was surprised how nice some of the photos came out with moving fish in low light situations. I used it on a Samsung NX1000. For the photos the ISO was 800, f/1.8 and Shutter 1/125s.
