Five New Lenses for Samsung NX Cameras

Samsung NX10 Interchangeable Lens Camera

Samsung has unveiled five new lenses for their NX interchangeable lens camera system increasing the number of available NX lenses to a grand total of ten.

The new 16mm F2.4 pancake, 85mm f/1.4, 16-80mm and new versions of its 60mm f/2.8 macro with image stabilization (O.I.S.) and 18-200mm lenses are all compatible with Samsung’s unique i-Function system, a technology that allows the user to use a lens ring to adjust shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation, white balance, and ISO sensitivity.

The new NX lenses will be released over an 8-month period from May to December 2011. Samsung’s NX camera system offers DSLR shooting advantages – a DSLR sensor and interchangeable lenses – in a smaller package by doing away with the pentaprism or pentamirror found in traditional SLR cameras.
