Samsung NX 20-50mm f/3.5-5.6 ( S2050NB ) - Review / Lab Test

4 April 2014
  • Conclusion: We really liked the Samsung NX 20-50mm f/3.5-5.6 for various reasons. Optically it is among the best standard zoom lenses in the mirrorless system class that we've seen so far. It is capable of delivering very sharp results across the focal length range even at max. aperture. There's only a little field curvature at 20mm. Typical for most standard zoom lenses it produces a heavy barrel distortion at the wide end. There is some pronounced vignetting at max.

  • Summary: An affordable, mid-range zoom lens for Samsung's NX mirrorless cameras.Samsung's 20-50mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens has been designed to be small and light and features a retractable design similar to the 14-42mm kit lens provided by Olympus with its PEN-series cameras. However, it's just over 30 grams lighter. Compared to standard kit lenses, it is narrower by 2 mm at wide angle and by 5 mm at the tele end. But it lacks built-in stabilisation. . .
  • Pros: You're looking for a light and compact, general-purpose lens for Samsung's NX cameras., You require good performance at an affordable price. Don't buy this lens if :, You need close focusing and macro capabilities., You'd like built-in image stabilisation., You want high resolution at all focal lengths, along with good flatness of field
