This Samsung 30mm pancake lens is a great choice for everyday photography. It's compatible with Samsung NX mount cameras, like the NX10. Its large maximum aperture gathers lots of light so you can use faster shutter speeds to "freeze" moving subjects. It's also perfect for shooting crystal-clear photos indoors without using a flash.

  • designed for Samsung NX mount cameras, like the NX10
  • effective focal length of 46.2mm
  • large maximum aperture of f/2.0 for better low-light shooting and depth-of-field control

Samsung camera lens

Written By Barbara, Carson City, NV on Tuesday, February 01, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My husband and I were assured by sales that the lens we we re purchasing had the lens priority mode. We spent over 10 minutes on the phone being assured it did. Upon reception we found that it didn't contain the priority mode. However, we had to leave on a scheduled vacation out of the country the following day after reception of the said lens. We were extremely disappointed but had no alternative. The pictures taken turned out fine. Unfortunately what we wanted and expected did not.
