Practice makes perfect.

  • Excerpt: Finding a focus point can be a challenge under low light, but when you get the subject, this lens will deliver nice quality images. With f2.8 aperture, you'll get very shallow debt of field, which can be utilized in portrait type images as well. All together I like this lens.

Extremely sharp lens on Samsung NX1 camera

VisionLight, B&H Photo
9 July 2015
  • Excerpt: I enjoy macro photography, so the 60mm f/2.8 lens was a natural choice for my new Samsung NX1 camera. From its very first image of a bumble bee on a Dahlia with precise details in both the bee's wings and eyes, I was confident its purchase was the right choice.

Great Lens for a Great Camera

22 June 2015
  • Excerpt: As I have only just recently acquired both the NX1 camera and this lens, I can only give initial impressions and those are that both are superior. As with all of the best Samsung lenses, they are heavy, but worth it.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Macro Lens is very versatile

  • Summary: Love this lens. Great for macro shots, and super great for distance shots too. Easy to use, and color images come out superior. Wonderful for botanicals -- but goes way beyond close ups.

  • Summary: I expected it to be better than it is. I wish the close up capabilities was better, but with a lot of work I can get a good picture.

While it does work for close-ups there does not appear ...

  • Summary: While it does work for close-ups there does not appear to be any type of ring flash that will syn with it. I purchased this lense to use at work which requires me to take similar photos on a day to day basis, same magnification, but there is not way to do this with the lense.

Great Macro.

  • Excerpt: Great lens. Excellent macro detail and also very useful as a portrait lens. Very pleased. I used to shoot with Olympus and loved their 60mm macro. This lens easily matches that one in every way and perhaps a little better. Sample photos attached.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

a very quiet lens for focusing

  • Summary: I just got the lens today and took a few close up 1:1 photos. I am very happy with the quietness of the lens when focusing and it does the focusing without making any noise that I can hear.
