1 question already asked
1 answer I have recently purchased the NX 300m and it came with the 18-55 lens. I, wondering which lens would be the best every day use that will give me a portrait or group as well as somewhat of a zoom? I'm going on a cruise in February and don't want to keep changing lenses.

Thanks for your question. For information on comparing two or more lenses I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences and help you make the best choice for your camera and your budget. [ Greg Dec 23, 2014 ] Staff
