Samsung NX 60mm f/2.8 Macro ED OIS SSA Reviews

Photozone reviews the Samsung NX 60mm f/2.8 Macro ED OIS SSA and writes;
“The lens is capable of delivering an excellent center resolution straight from f/2.8. The borders/corners are quite soft but unless you are into repro photography this may not be much of an issue. The overall quality is pretty good at f/4 and quite impressive between f/5.6 and f/11. There is some vignetting at f/2.8 but it’s not a real problem beyond. Distortions are nothing to worry about.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Ephotozine reviews the Samsung NX 60mm f/2.8 Macro ED OIS SSA and writes;
“it produces excellent sharpness across the frame. The optical stabiliser does an excellent job of providing a steady image on screen to aid composition, but isn’t as effective at close distances as it is at normal distances. Overall, it is an excellent quality lens, which just about justifies its price.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Whatdigitalcamera reviews the Samsung NX 60mm f/2.8 Macro ED OIS SSA and writes;
“Internally there is an Optical Image Stabiliser and a Super-Sonic Actuator AF system, together with ED glass for improved image quality. The OIS system, which is smooth and unobtrusive but effective, is activated from the camera menu rather than from the lens and is not included within the iFunction menu, which is a shame. SSA autofocusing proved to be quick and reliable.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Lenstip reviews the Samsung NX 60mm f/2.8 Macro ED OIS SSA and writes;
“In the aperture range from f/2.8 to f/16 the lens will give you images of good or very good quality across the frame. If you only stop meticulously counting lines per image height and ponder over 5-10% differences the photos taken with the Samsung 2.8/60 should satisfy you completely.”
