Samsung 20mm f/2.8 NX User Reviews

8.0/10 average of 1 reviews Build Quality 8.0/10 Image Quality 8.0/10
  • 8 out of 10 points and recommended by (2 reviews)
    Good resolution qualities, small and light, iFn button, cheap!
    Some distorsion and chromatic aberration

    Another very nice and useful lens for the NX if you like a moderate wide angle.

    Construction is excellent, AF near silent and performances very high (although a notch down from the 30mm).

    iFn is also nice to use for changing parameters in a seamless way.

    Small and light also makes it a perfect companion for the street shooter.

    The NX line will be successful if Samsung continues issuing excellent lenses like this one.
