Decent all purpose lens
Comments about Samsung 50-200mm Telephoto Zoom Lens:
This 50-200mm lens has been a good all purpose lens for me. I'm more of a budget photographer so I will never own a very high quality lens. Therefore, I can't compare this with a very high quality lens. It has produced excellent photos for me and was a great value. Easily switch from auto to manual focus. Pressing the i-Fn button opens a settings menu on the display. My only issue is with the zoom ring. Twisting the zoom ring is not as smooth as it should be. This isn't as much an issue with photos as it is with video. Making small adjustments to the zoom causes the ring to jump a little. This isn't a large issue but is something Samsung can improve. A smooth zoom ring would allow precise zooming and less camera movement while taking videos. I do understand that zooming while recording video isn't an effective technique but it has its place at times. Overall, the value and images produced by this lens are excellent.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A lens that makes a Great camera even better
from Atlantic City, NJ, USA
I am using this lens on my NX30 I only take pics as a hobby I am not a pro. Adding this lens has improved distance shoots 1000% for me. It is great because it is compact, easy to use and crystal clear. I tool a picture with the lens set at 50mm from standing in front of my house. I then zoomed in on a building that is located at least 2 plus miles from me across a bay. with the 200mm zoom in I could clearly see the name of the building on the side and I could also even see people on their balconies. This is something I never thought I would be able to see at that distance . Next I too a picture down my street as traffic was coming my way I was able to not only clearly see the birds taking off as the cars neared them I caught the birds mid-flight as they took off it was very clear no blur and great to look at. This lens is easy to change with the camera release and works better then expected. My next use of this will be this weekend at a NFL preseason game I have seats in the end zone and can not wait to see what this lens can do. Again I am just a hobby photo taker not a pro.
Love this lens
from Toledo, OH, USA
very nice lens! little on the heavy side, but overall good quality.
Nice Sharp but stabilization is not that great
from Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA
Very sharp, with nice rendering. Focus may hunt at the long end. Good build quality. The image stabilization was not quite as good as I expected.
