Key Features
  • Samsung NX Mount
  • 77-231mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8-22
  • 4 ED/1 XHR Elements
The 50-150mm f2.8 S ED OIS Lens from Samsung features the NX mount and is a Premium "S" Series lens. It offers a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 77-231mm, making it suitable for portraits as well as sports photography and wildlife. Regardless of the focal length selected along the lens barrel, an f/2.8 maximum aperture can be selected to benefit low-light shooting or provide shallow depth of field. For a wider depth of field or to compensate for high shutter speeds that may otherwise be needed under very bright shooting conditions, the lens can be stopped down to f/22.

Samsung EX-ZS50150ABUS Overview

The 50-150mm f2.8 S ED OIS Lens from Samsung features the NX mount and is a Premium "S" Series lens. It offers a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 77-231mm, making it suitable for portraits as well as sports photography and wildlife.

For a wider depth of field or to compensate for high shutter speeds that may otherwise be needed under very bright shooting conditions, the lens can be stopped down to f/22.

Consisting of 20 elements in 13 groups, including four ED (extra-low dispersion) and one XHR (eXtreme High Refractive) element for excellent clarity, detail and sharpness, this 50-150mm also includes optical image stabilization. This feature helps prevent user movement from rendering an image unusable while handholding the lens and a compatible camera. An Ultra-Precise Stepping Motor (UPSM) improves upon the conventional Stepping Motor (SM), offering three times the precision in its ability to focus on subjects.

To make this lens particularly useful for sports, wildlife, and variety of subjects frequently recorded outdoors; Samsung has incorporated SHS (Samsung Hyper Shield) Coating that protects the front element from dust, water, fingerprints, and smears.

question

I am looking at the NX1 again and am considering this as my telephoto zoom. I currently use a (borrowed) canon 70D with the efs 55-250 lens the the focal length is good for what I want to video at the long end. I want to have the same or close reach with the NX1, will this lens get me pretty close. I'm assuming there is a crop factor using this Lens on the NX1 but I could be wrong? Thanks

Both the Canon EFs 55-250mm and Samsung 50-150mm are designed for APS-C sensors. With Canon's 1.6 crop factor, the Canon has an effective full frame focal length of 88-400mm. With Samsung's 1.54 crop factor, the Samsung has an effective full frame focal length of 77-231mm. This shows that the Samsung lens only has 58% of the telephoto reach of the Canon lens and would not meet your needs as stated. The Samsung 50-150mm f/2.0-2.8 S is one of the finest lenses I have ever shot with in over fifty years of photography, but it is not intended for long reach in video. It does have an internal digital 2.0X tele-extender that crops the sensor (an actual crop, not a down sample), but this only works on still images, not video.Plus keep in mind that Samsung, in their own words, has parked their digital camera and lens business, though they also say that they have not officially ended it. Samsung has stopped distributing their digital camera equipment in almost the entire world (the U.S. and Korea being exception so far). There are no known roadmaps for any equipment going forward. Although the NX-1 and S lenses give excellent results, anyone wishing to buy into a system camera should think carefully before making any purchases.
