Excerpt: I'm new to mirrorless and coming from a Pentax 645D, this lens looks like it came in the cereal box. I only use this for video with the NX1 and I can't complain as far as the image quality results.
Perfect to keep the DSLR camera in the girl purse.

Summary: Sooooooooooo much convenience to keep the camera in my purse and be with me any moment I need a great camera to get the picture. Plus the lense itself gives you the wide length to your picture. You will like it so much once you use it. I promise you!
Summary: A nice, good quality, fast focus acquisition, solid, good field of view lens. The Fn button on the lens is redundant, but nice. If purchased, the 30mm should be a bit flatter as it does not have the Fn button. This lens take a 43mm filter, the OEM 20-50mm lens takes a 40.5mm filter.
Excerpt: I use this lens with my samsung nx 1000 so frequently that I haven't carried the 20-50 kit lens around since. in terms of sharpness it is pretty comparable to the kit lens and gives a good level of sharpness above f3.5 with some soft corners wide open which is generally to be expected.
