REVIEW: Samsung 30mm f/2 NX Pancake Lens Review

photodo
6 July 2014
  • Excerpt: This compact pancake lens sports an unusually fast f/2 maximum aperture and can be picked up for around £230. On an NX system camera, this lens provides an angle of view similar to a 45mm lens on a 35mm camera, making this an ideal choice as a standard lens.

Samsung NX 30mm f/2 Review

What Digital Camera
12 November 2011
  • Summary: Overall, this is a Jekyll-and-Hyde lens. If you like compact lenses then you’ll love it but if not then its handling may annoy you. It’s the most expensive of the current Samsung NX lenses yet it has the fewest features and isn’t even supplied with a lens-hood, which the other two have.
  • Pros: Great MTF results
  • Cons: MF selection on camera body only

Samsung NX 30mm f/2 ( S30NB ) - Review / Lens Test

  • Conclusion: The Samsung NX 30mm f/2 is a highly attractive pancake lens. It's very usable at f/2 and f/2.8 and very sharp across the image frame at medium aperture settings. Distortions as well as lateral CAs are minimal and not relevant from a real life perspective.

  • Conclusion: There’s no denying that after several days of playing with the Samsung NX10 and the 2/30 pancake set I took a liking to it. Most of this sympathy was gained exactly by the lens. I can hardly wait for next Samsung launches in the same style.
  • Cons: frame edges could have been a bit sharper at the maximum aperture,, noticeable vignetting.

  • Summary: Trudno ukrywać, że po kilkudniowej zabawie z Samsungiem NX10 połączonym z „naleśnikiem” 2/30 nabrałem sporo sympatii do tego zestawu. Duża część tej sympatii została zyskana właśnie dzięki obiektywowi. Nie mogę się wiec doczekać, kiedy Samsung uraczy nas kolejnymi premierami w tym stylu.
  • Pros: bardzo kompaktowa obudowa przy zachowaniu rozsądnego światła,, świetna jakość obrazu w centrum kadru,, dobra jakość obrazu na brzegu kadru,, bardzo dobrze korygowana aberracja chromatyczna,, dobrze korygowany astygmatyzm,, prawidłowa praca pod ostre światło,, stosunkowo cichy i celny autofokus.
  • Cons: brzegi kadru przy maksymalnym otworze mogłyby być choć troszkę ostrzejsze,, zauważalne winietowanie.
