The black Samsung 16mm f/2.4 Ultra Wide Pancake Lens is a highly compact and lightweight wide-angle lens providing a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 24.6mm. Two aspherical elements are incorporated into the lens' design to minimize chromatic aberrations and color fringing while also contributing to enhanced contrast and clarity in imagery.

i-Function control is supported with this lens, for use with compatible Samsung NX cameras, to provide intuitive lens-based control over a variety of camera settings. i-Scene suggestion options are also supported, including Backlight, Landscape, Sunset, Dawn, Beach & Snow, and Night settings.

Lightweight and compact wide-angle lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 24.6mm.
Bright f/2.4 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions and also contributes to producing shallow depth of field imagery.
Two aspherical elements help to minimize chromatic aberrations and enhance image contrast and clarity.
i-Function control button allows lens-based control over certain camera functions, including ISO, shutter speed, aperture, exposure value, and white balance settings.
i-Scene Backlight, Landscape, Sunset, Dawn, Beach & Snow, and Night modes are supported to enable a Samsung NX camera to automatically optimize camera settings based on the lens in use.
A seven-blade circular aperture helps to produce an aesthetic out-of-focus quality to benefit shallow depth of field imagery.
Minimum focus distance of 7.1" aids in creating close-up imagery with an exaggerated perspective.

      Better than 18-55 but not so much.

          Comments about 16mm f/2.4 Ultra Wide Pancake Lens (Black):

          I bought this lens hoping I could get a wider angle than the standard 18-55 mm. And I did but not a lot. Just a litte bit clear and a little bit wider.
          I will suggest this lens if you don't have a standard lens, or if you are looking for a compact lens.

            I really enjoy this lens. I bought the camera with the 18-55 which is a fine all around lens but the wide angle of this lens provides just the right amount of width without a fish-eye perspective.

            I am really enjoying the pics made with this lens. The scenery is wide angle with very little noticeable distortions. It isn't as thin as i thought it was going to be though... overall great.

              Comments about 16mm f/2.4 Ultra Wide Pancake Lens (Black):

              other than the basic zoom, this is probably the one to get. Nice and sharp, compact and not so wide as to distort perspective.

              One small beef- would be nice if the accessory bag was a little bit bigger so that the "standard" lens would fit in it more comfortably.

                Incredible little lens, lightweight and delivers superb shots. Sharp centre focus that drops off to nice soft outer edges, creating very nice and professional looking images.

                    Excellent easy to use great wide angle photos. The
                    i function on the lens is a great feature. Samsung is far ahead of the other major brands for being a new player in this market. My camera is the NX-300.
                    I was a long time Sony only user and after a lot of research I'm glad to have switched to Samsung.

                        I bought this prior to a trip to Alaska to round out my set of 3 (this, stock, and telephoto) lenses for my NX1000 and it was perfect. The angle of view over the stock lens is well worth it and it performed excellent indoors in some low light conditions. It's just as useful indoors to capture more of the scene as it is outdoors.

                                    I've added this 16mm/f2.4 ultra-wide lens to my NX100 to keep my kit smaller. I also have the 30mm/f2.0, so I can have to two ranges I want without much bulk. I find the 16mm images are as good looking to me as those from the 30mm. I also can shoot more often without needing flash or even high ISOs, things I wanted to control more easily. I have not found any negatives about this 16mm lens, and I doubt I will. Very happy with my purchase.

                                        I am impressed with this lens. Besides being ultra compact, the lens is tack sharp and produces wonderful images. I read one review that complained the lens was soft in the corners when shot wide open but I don't find that to be accurate. The lens is a nice addition to my NX200 system!

                                          I'm using 16/2.4 with my NX10. Performance of the lens is really satisfiying, the sharpness is extremely good even at f:2.4. This is my first lens with i-function and found it very usefull. Price/ performance is high, I'm sure many other brands are jealous about this lens.
                                          It is very compact and lightweight, with NX10 I can carry it even in my pocket without a bag.
