While Samsung has a number of zooms in their mirrorless NX lens range, their primes consist of an intriguing amalgamation of compact ‘pancake’ types, ultra-high speed designs and special purpose models. We’ve assembled five models for testing and analyzed them using a 20Mpix Samsung NX20. Read on to see how well the combination of high-resolution APS-C sensor and innovative NX-mount primes perform.

yes, thanks again. As being a consumer, it´s nice to see these sam-lenses respected. In fact they appear kind of unknown; prices have risen in BRD now, but seem to be far away from the prices told in the test. preferring 30mm, 20mm, the cheap zoom, the stabilized zoom (III) - in that order.
There is also the Samsung NX 20mm F 2.8 (i think 2.8), which is very flexible and I own it. I use it more than either the very nice 30mm or the 16mm. Could you not find a copy to include to the test? It would be very interesting to have results from this lens too. The test was overall very interesting and thank you for taking the effort to conduct it.
The samsung nx is probably the best mirrorless system with aps-c sensor and the lenses are truly great, as your test shows. I'd like to see the nx300 tested, since its iq and dr, especially at high iso, are now better than the older nx20. Do you plan to test it anytime soon? Thanks.
