Samsung 20-50mm f/3.5-5.6 ED NX review by cvizler
26 March 2014
Summary: Optically it is not perfect, but still better than the kit zooms I use regularly, the Nikkor 18-55mm (first version), the 18-105mm, or the Nikon 1 10-30mm. Very compact and tight, but mine has a mechanical fault, sometimes it is not able to set focus and switches off the whole camera, apparently due to a speck of dust caught in its mechanism. But I am rough with my gear.
Pros: Very sharp at the wide and, acceptable at the long end
Summary: Only the new Panasonic kit for the Gm1 is better outside of the fancier(and far more expensive) Olympus kits like thier 12-50mm. If you're going to be shooting static images in good light this is better than the 18-55 samsung kit lens. Still for as nice as it is, long term, you're better off skipping both kits and getting the excellent 30mm pancake first and using the $150-225 you'd spend on this on the 50-200mm zoom or maybe the 60mm macro.
Excellent lens, sharp, good build quality, but limited range.

Summary: This highly rated 20-50mm is the standard "kit" lens for the Samsung NX1000/1100 and is an excellent quality lens. It has great sharpness, is reasonably fast, and turns out great images. The zoom range is a bit limited, but the lens is also pretty compact and does cover a useful range (30-75mm equivalent) for general photography. It does not have image stabilization as some of the other Samsung lenses do, but in my use, this has not been a particular problem.

Summary: The lens is kit zoom. Like a toy but it is quite solid. The len's image quality is good but is not the best. There is a distortion at focal length 20mm. The sharpness at 50mm is not good. But overall, it is better than all other kit zoom.
Pros: Compact, lightweight, image quality is good.
Cons: Plastic mount, filter thread is 40,5mm, flare
Summary: I bought this lens in addition to my SAMSUNG NX-10 body, and I wasn't dissapointed at all, even more- I was really impressed with its fresh and precise design, and new generation feature,so called i-function. It feels like it is one piece whith camera's body when it is placed where it should be. Great product for Samsung compatible bodies.
Summary: This is one of the least expensive lenses in the Samsung range but is optically one of the best and actually betters the performance of many higher-priced zooms for other cameras. The best performing lens of the brand is currently the 85mm 1.4, a rather more expensive and very much heavier and bulkier item, but this is not far behind, providing exceptional performance regardless of zoom setting.
Summary: .... mit guten bis sehr guten Testergebnissen. Mit den Bildern war ich immer sehr zufrieden, da der Autofokus allerdings vergleichsweise langsam ist, sind für Schnappschüsse von Kindern andere Objektive der NX-Reihe die bessere Wahl (Kit-Objektiv, 18-200 mm). Indoor und bei schlechten Lichtverhältnissen braucht es zwingend den Blitz. Das neue Zoom-Objektiv 16-50 mm ist noch kompakter und hat einen Bildstabilisator - es wird sich zeigen, wie es in Tests abschneidet.
