    Comments about 20mm f/2.8 Pancake Lens for NX10 / NX100 (Black):

    I use this lens with my samsung nx 1000 so frequently that I haven't carried the 20-50 kit lens around since. in terms of sharpness it is pretty comparable to the kit lens and gives a good level of sharpness above f3.5 with some soft corners wide open which is generally to be expected. What makes this lens particularly good compared to the kit lens even though it is optically very comparable is the ergonomics and focusing speed. I personally hate lenses that need to be popped out or "locked" like most mirrorless camera kit lenses and this one doesn't need to do that. It also focuses very fast as well making it great for spontaneous picture taking. One of the big things I like is that the lens retracts into it's self when the camera is turned off making it less susceptible to damage when you're sticking it in your pocket though there are other downsides to this which I will explain later. The focusing ring also feels very smooth for manual shots or ifn. One thing I don't like about this lens other than the sharpness wide open is the pocketability. Dispite being a pancake lens it is marginally better than the retracted kit lens for fitting in your pocket. I was never expecting it to be olympus BLC thin but it would have been nice if they could have cut about half a centimeter or more. As it is I would be able to fit it in my coat pocket but forget pants unless you have cargo pants.all in all it's a great lens that is very versatile and great value for the price. .........

      Comments about 20mm f/2.8 Pancake Lens for NX10 / NX100 (Black):

      While not quite as sharp as the 30mm, this lens delivers the goods even wide open. Stop it down to f/4 for sharper corners but all in all I have no complaints. It's also much better at macro than the 30mm lens though you are not near 1:1 it's perfect for larger objects and the bokeh is beautiful.
