Pretty impressive little lens!

Excerpt: This little pancake lens has a pretty impressive image. I use this for video work, as I'm not a stills photographer by any means. I have taken a few photos with this lens and they all look really good!
Pros: Fairly Well Made, Inexpensive, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: This lens is sharp and fun to use since it is so small. I use it on the NX1 and when shooting my kids in broad daylight. It hit focus in Multi-Mode/ continuous about 25% of the time. Focusing on the background instead of on my kids.
Summary: This is a tricky review for me. I love the lens and all it's capable of, no regrets! ... however, I ordered the black and was sent the white. While it looks ridiculous on my brown NX300, I don't want to go through the hassle of returning it and waiting for the replacement.
Summary: I have not had a lot of time to play around with this lens. So far so good. Not blown away at this point. And I am not convinced it was something I needed but I really wanted something for when I took pictures of people , something that gives me the blurred background etc.
Summary: The kit lens (20-50mm) works perfectly with face detection in Beauty Face Smart Mode. I purchased this lens and cannot get it to work with face detection. I can focus on a face, but after snapping the photo, the camera says 'no face detected.' Anyone else have this problem with this lens?
