Samsung 20mm f/2.8 Reviews

Photozone reviews the Samsung 20mm f/2.8 and writes;
“the Samsung NX 20mm f/2.8 does a pretty good job actually. At f/2.8 you have to live with some corner softness and quite high vignetting. However, the center resolution and contrast is already very decent here. The results are very sharp when stopping down to medium aperture settings.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Ephotozine reviews the Samsung 20mm f/2.8 and writes;
“Chromatic aberration is the lens’ inability to focus on the sensor or film all colours of visible light at the same point. Severe chromatic aberration gives a noticeable fringing or a halo effect around sharp edges within the picture. It can be cured in software. For this review, the lens was tested on a Samsung NX11 using Imatest.”
