Samsung's 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS Lens is a wide-angle to normal zoom lens that's ideal for day-to-day shooting. It's an i-Function lens, which means most major camera settings can be set from the lens itself, while keeping your attention on the subject at hand, not the camera. Shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance, and exposure compensation can all be set using the focus ring on the lens, without reference to the camera body. It features OIS (Optical Image Stabilizer) for clear, crisp images even in low-light situations with slow shutter speeds. Optimized for the NEX cameras, quick and accurate autofocus (0.17 seconds) is possible with the contrast-detect autofocus.
Perfect Pictures at Your Fingertips
Taking professional-quality pictures is now as easy as smiling for one. The intuitive i-Function lens gives you quick and easy, one-touch access to all your camera's manual settings. Adjust shutter speed, aperture and more with just a twist of the lens while previewing the image in real-time. Now you can see how your settings affect the shot before you take it. Whether you're an enthusiast or an expert, the convenient i-Function lens truly revolves around your photographic needs.
Image Changes From Angle of View
Angle of View is the area of a scene that can be seen through the lens. This changes as you zoom through the range of focal lengths: 18mm, 24mm, 42mm, and 55mm.
Optical Image Stabilizer for Clear, Sharp Images
Create beautiful images that move you, even if you jostle the camera. The 18-55mm zoom lens comes equipped with lens-shift optical image-stabilizing technology. Samsung's optical image stabilizer uses tiny lens-shifts to cancel out motion blur, even in low light shots. And since the image is being stabilized externally in the lens, what you see through the viewfinder - and on the display - is perfectly clear.
Fast AF That Captures Life in an Instant
A revolutionary, new type of camera calls for a lens design equally as cutting-edge, such as the lightweight 18-55mm zoom lens. Optimized for Samsung's compact system cameras, its quick and accurate contrast AF (Auto Focus) focuses in an incredible approx. 170ms* (0.17 seconds). Now you can capture even the most spontaneous moments in astonishing detail, and turn unexpected, had-to-be-there moments into memories of a lifetime.
