Samsung 16-50mm f2-2.8 S ED OIS Sample Images Image

Here are 12 sample images taken with the new Samsung 16-50mm f2-2.8 S ED OIS lens mounted on a Samsung NX30 body.

The Samsung 16-50mm f2-2.8 S ED OIS is a new premium standard zoom for Samsung NX compact system cameras, providing an effective focal range of 24.6-77mm in 35mm terms.

Please note that the Samsung 16-50mm f2-2.8 S ED OIS lens we briefly used was a pre-production version, so the image quality isn't fully indicative of the final shipping version.

Which Samsung NX camera where these shot with?


Any chance of raws? Samsung doesn’t have a great jpeg engine reputation, so raws from say the NX300 would be helpful in judging the lens’ optical quality.

Jay, it’s right there in the very first line “Samsung NX30 body.”

Very ordinary image quality, considering that these seem to be studio samples. Not great sharpness, even in the center, seemingly average contrast. Nx system is subpar in many ways compared to sony, fuji, nikon.

This is hard to believe, that these images were shot with the Samsung 16-50mm f2-2.8 S ED OIS.

Honestly, you’d imagine that the results were much better. I have the NX30 and I guess even with the standard 18 - 55mm f3.5 OIS you’d get better results.

I hardly ever use the jpeg-mode, though. RAW is my preferred choice. I guess this explains a lot.

We use the NX30 with the macro EX-M60SB (60mm, F2,8 ED OIS SSA) for dental imaging. The results are great, they surpassed our expectations for our dental pictures by far.
