This is an unusual and impressive beast. Unusual because of its unusually wide aperture for the focal length (except at an enormous price) and certainly for a 135mm lens which is what it effectively is, its SSA (Super-Sonic Actuator focus motor, similar to the systems used in some Nikon and Canon lenses), its inclusion of a focussing distance scale and a limited depth of field indicator, the latter two rarely seen on lenses designed for use on digital cameras. It is also unusual in that it differs from most other Samsung lenses in having most of its body constructed of metal; most others use either completely plastic bodies or have a minimal amount of metal. The weight and bulk of this lens and the need for a very stable construction due to the sheer size of its components, demands a more substantial construction. It is impressive because of its maximum aperture and its size, large for an APS-C camera. The mount is the standard metal one used throughout the current range (one exception being the very lightweight but optically heavyweight 20-50 alternate kit lens); a plastic one would make no sense.

Described by Samsung as ideal for portraiture, its effective focal length is closer to one of 135mm in 35mm camera terms which is normally considered too long for studio use and suitable for head and shoulder shots only at mid-distances (3-4 metres). The ideal portrait lens on a 35mm camera was always considered to be one about 1 2/3-2x that of a standard lens, hence 85mm (or the occasional 90mm) to 105mm were most often described as portrait lenses. For APS-C cameras, such as the NX range, you would need to reduce those values by around one third and therefore 55-70mm would be the range for an ideal equivalent.

Optically excellent, lovely bokeh and fantastic value at £399. Heavy; but expect that. Comes with hood and nice padded bag. I function button really useful, for aperture setting or other choices Has an auto focus switch also good; some don't have that.

Focus is accurate but not the quickest and slower in low light at F1.4. Also a bit noisy by today's mirror less standards but probably not a video lens unless you are using a tripod and then probably external mic.

Well you will get some beautiful photos with this but need to keep the shutter speed a bit higher to counter shake (not a problem with F1.4)

This is a big lens capable of some stunning shots - no macro facility but matched to the NX20 gave some stunning shots. Need to watch the depth of field and focus points so not for the casual user.
