As this lens is currently not supplied directly by Amazon, I was forced to order via a third party. Their service was good and the lens was received within 72 hours of placing the order.

This lens shares a similar design and build style to that of the standard 18-55 kit lens. The mount is metal but the body is essentially plastic. In terms of weight, the lens is much lighter than expected even though I have similarly constructed lenses of other brands and of similar effective range which are significantly heavier. Were this lens made by Sigma, it would be around double the weight! The lens is supplied with both caps and a plastic, fleck-lined hood. Also supplied is a soft pouch which you may use or not as you wish. The lens accepts a modest 52mm filter, which is curiously 2 sizes smaller than that for the standard kit lens.

In an initial test shoot, where there was very bright sunshine in the more open environments, I could not see any flare even when shooting more or less directly into the sun with the hood in place. The day was quite breezy and there was some dust in the air and I did not wish to chance shooting without a hood or a protective filter in place. Some shots were taken either indoors or under partial cover and included a mix of daylight, fluorescent, halogen and sometimes tungsten bulbs which would severely challenge the colour performance of most cameras but there were no obvious nasty colour rendition issues to be found.

Other than focal length markings, there is no more. The lens is fitted with the usual AF-MF switch to control how focussing is done but the zooming is manually controlled. The IFn button is close by. The lens action is also similar to that of the kit lens, smooth but not silky and focussing is quite fast and accurate.

I purchased this 200mm Lens with image stabilisation to use with my new White Samsung NX1000 camera. I have been using it now for a month and picture quality is way better than I would expect for a lens costing so little but there are a couple of niggles people need to be aware of.

First is with focus, I have noticed that the lens does not always focus accurately and that I find myself using the focus ring to check what the auto focus is presenting. The NX1000 has a feature that allows you to use the focus ring even when auto focus is selected on the lens. This brings up an enlarged image (5X or 8X) allowing you to fine tune the focus, problem is that when you are working hand held it is pretty imposable to judge focus without a viewfinder and the screen although bright is not easy to see in bright sunshine. Also, if you try to use the lens for fairly close up work (4 to 6 metres) as I do with portraits, then the Auto Focus struggles to lock, hunting backwards and forwards whilst manual focus works fine.

Secondly, and I see someone else has made a similar comment, the lens is only available in black so if you don't have the black camera then hard luck. Seems a shame that Samsung have not chosen to colour match their lens to the camera.

It is also worth noting that due to the restricted F range of this lens even with stabilisation, you will find yourself needing to use a higher ISO setting to keep your image sharp although I found in practice that in normal lighting noise was not a serious issue and picture quality remained good.

On the plus side, the lens feels solid and well made and the results if you are careful with focusing can be excellent. I have only given 4 stars because of the niggles listed but as already mentioned, for the price (£135 at the time of purchase) you can't really go wrong.

I will post pictures to give an idea of quality.

4 stars for a remarkable lens for the price - you can't beat this value for NX series.
Because of the plastic structure it is quite light, which is good for handling without a tripod, unfortunately this adds to the feeling cheap -factor.
The zoom isn't as smooth as you might expect from higher priced lenses, it doesn't grind but feels a bit sluggish.
OIS works fine and images are much sharper than with stock lens without OIS.
It's worked quite well for me, and would recommend this for any NX owner who could sometimes use a telephoto but don't want to spend several hundreds on it.

First let me put P Martin's review in it's place. This is clearly a guy who has absolutely no idea about photography and having purchased an item that he has no idea how to use has decided to rubbish the product.

I bought a Samsung NK1000 camera as an easy to carry option to my Nikon D7000 kit. I am very happy with the camera (apart from no optical viewfinder) so decided to add some useful lenses. One being this 50 -200. First impression when opening the box was very positive. The lens seems to be of high quality construction with a decent all metal bayonet to connect to the camera. better than the plastic bayonet on the kit lens. Included in the packaging were the required front and rear caps plus a basic but useful lens bag.

The one problem I found was after fitting the lens to the camera. The zoom action, particularly at the wide end of the range, is very stiff. This probably would not be a problem if attached to a full sized DSLR but when fitted to the tiny NX1000 body it is hard to hold the body steady while zooming. Once the desired framing is achieved it is quite easy to hold the camera/lens combination steady. I am not a great lover of lightweight kit as a little bit of weight is helpful in keeping camera shake to a minimum. As this camera cannot be steadied by pressing against the face (which is one reason why a proper viewfinder is useful) any little help in avoiding shake is good. The lens also has optical anti-shake which seems reasonably effective.

All the above are pointless comments unless the lens is capable of good pics. So far its use has been limited but I am very happy with the results I have achieved. Compared with similar lenses for my Nikon this is a budget priced lend and for the price it is very good. I have dropped one star simply because of the stiffness of the zoom.
