Samsung S 50-150mm f/2.8 OIS Lens Preview

Samsung 50 150mm F2 8 OIS ED Ifunction (6)

The new Samsung 50-150mm f/2.8 S ED OIS lens, for Samsung NX cameras, feels very well built with a solid construction, and fits neatly onto the Samsung NX1, making the camera system look professional. The lens features a constant f/2.8 aperture which should mean it is possible to get pleasing bokeh and background blur. The lens zoom is internal, and optical image stabilisation is said to give between 4 and 4.5 stops. The lens is also dust and spash resistant, matching the weather sealed Samsung NX1.
