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.

question

Do you think 24mm is enough for a wide angle used with the Nebula 4000 or should I go wider? I want to go wider to not have to bother about focus too much, but I don't want distortion either. What do you think? I'll use an NX1 with the Nebula. Thanks
Asked by: Philippe
I suggest you go to B&H and try the lens. (I bought a 16mm not 24mm) and also it's subjective what you are asking so I cannot answer either way.
