The Samsung Compact 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS Zoom Lens is created to be the new go-to lens for any of the Samsung NX compact cameras. With its classic look, simple design, portable size and standard zoom focal range this is the use-it-everyday lens for the impressive Samsung NX camera line. This is an intuitive i-Function lens, which means that all of your camera's manual functions can be accessed by simply turning the lens ring. And more, your adjustments can be previewed in real time so you know what your shot will look like before you take it. This is not only a great tool for precise image control, but a wonderful learning device to improve your photography.
With Samsung's lens-shift optical image-stabilizing technology, sharp photos will be produced even if the camera moves a bit when shooting. Even with little available light, the optical image stabilizer uses tiny lens-shifts to cancel out motion blur. And since the image is being stabilized in the lens, what you see through the viewfinder - and on the display - is perfectly clear. Optimized to be quick and accurate with Samsung's compact NX system, the auto focus on this lens can reach focus in an incredible 0.17 seconds.
Easy to use in both auto and manual modes and providing fast focus and sharp images, this is the perfect compact lens with which to delve into the world of mirrorless photography.

I bought the Samsung NX1000, and wanted to replace the 20-50 kit lens that came with it. This 18-55 mm optically stabilized lens gives me the ability to use manual focus and control the camera settings from the lens itself, neither function available with the kit lens, and is very reasonably priced. My only small regret is that it is a f/3.5-5.6 rather than starting lower (but that would make it much more expensive). Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase and the price of the lens.
This Lens is a replacement of an unfortunate accident. Is a nice kit lens useful for portrait, landscape. Is a good companion for the NX20 when you want to travel without many accessories, big bags and other lenses
As a newbie to photography I purchased a Samsung NX1000 to replace my cheap point and shoot. The lens it came with was a low-end basic unit which lacked any stabilization which was a bit of a problem for me as I don't carry around a tripod. I bought this as a cheap replacement lense as it has very similar specs to the lese that came with the camera but also has the IOS image stabilizer and manual focus mode(which other lens did not have either). I am pleased with my purchase for now and can see myself taking much better pictures than ever before.
