Samsung 45mm f/1.8 NX review by Timmi

Timmi, slrgear.com
1 November 2014
  • 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)

In Love

  • 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.

This lens makes the NX2000 turn heads!

RioRosso, B&H Photo
26 March 2014
  • 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
  • Cons: Slow Focus

  • 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.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

Superb Lens, must have!

  • Excerpt: bought this lens after i had the kit 18-55 and 55-200. The 45mm serves a totally different function, used it for simple macro and also for portraiture and the effect exceeded my expectations! Portrait comes out distinct admist the smooth soft bokeh background.Lens quality is good as well, and the ifunction button adds a plesant bonus to the functionality of the lens.
  • Pros: Compact, Great Image, Lightweight, Nice bokeh

Very Nice lens

  • Excerpt: This is somewhat of a departure for me as I go back to the manual focus SLR days where lens were made of brass not plastic. Back to the present I want as light a piece of kit as I can get but with the caveat that it must be optically excellent. So the lens in question the Samsung 45 f 1.8 is light and produces stellar images. The focus is quick on my NX300 and accurate. Getting the hang of touch focus and maybe it is OK.
  • Pros: Lightweight
