Samsung 30mm f/2.0 Standard Pancake Lens Reviews

Ephotozine reviews the Samsung 30mm f/2.0 Standard Pancake Lens and writes;
“This lens delivers decent performance at a reasonable price. The unusually bright f/2 maximum aperture is a real bonus, extending the low light capabilities of your NX system camera.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Photozone reviews the Samsung 30mm f/2.0 Standard Pancake Lens and writes;
“The Samsung NX 30mm f/2 is a highly attractive pancake lens. It’s very usable at f/2 and f/2.8 and very sharp across the image frame at medium aperture settings. Distortions as well as lateral CAs are minimal and not relevant from a real life perspective.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Lenstip reviews the Samsung 30mm f/2.0 Standard Pancake Lens and writes;
“the accuracy is difficult to flaw. The set of the NX10 camera and the tested pancake lens in the studio conditions missed on average 1-2 times for every 100 expositions. This result is very good. Additional praise is deserved for the lack of front or back focus tendencies, which can be clearly seen”
rating: N/A

Photoreview reviews the Samsung 30mm f/2.0 Standard Pancake Lens and writes;
“Lateral chromatic aberration was negligible and we found only traces of coloured fringing when shots taken in contrasty lighting were enlarged to 100%. Vignetting at wide apertures was barely perceptible. Distortion was also very low, although slight barrelling could be seen in test shots.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

PCMAG reviews the Samsung 30mm f/2.0 Standard Pancake Lens and writes;
“If you’re looking for a fast, compact lens for your NX camera, it’s tough to go wrong with the 30mm f/2. The lens is extremely sharp at every aperture, allowing you to shoot wide open to create a shallow depth of field without sacrificing image quality.”
Rating: ★★★★☆
