Samsung 18-200mm ED OIS NX Lens This might be the one lens to have, if you only have one lens. The incredible 11x wide-angle 27.7-308mm (equivalent in 35mm format) lens can handle just about any photographic subject, from wide, wide landscapes to cityscapes to portraits to group photos to sports to wildlife. And with the built-in lens-shift optical image stabilizer, you'll get crisp, sharp photos and video even using the long telephoto end of the zoom range.

Speaking of video, the 18-200 is optimized for shooting video by using a Voice Coil Motor (VCM) that eliminates noisy autofocus--it also has fast zoom tracking, automatically keeping your subject in focus when zooming in or out. This is an i-Function lens, which allows you to change shutter speed, aperture, ISO and more right on the lens--you never have to take your hands off the lens, or your eyes off the action. The 18-200mm lens is designed for cameras with an NX mount--NX 10/NX100.

i-Function Lens This i-Function lens is perfect for novices and experts alike. If you're a beginner, shoot confidently like a pro with Lens Priority Mode. This allows your camera to instantly recognize the type of lens you've attached. Now, it will serve up optimal scene modes with i-Scene, while i-Setting optimizes all the settings for the perfect shot. If you're already a pro, you can cycle through and adjust shutter speed, aperture, ISO and more - all without taking your fingers off the lens, and your eyes off the shot - simply by pressing the i-Function button and turning the value ring to the desired settings.

Whisper-Quiet, Perfect Focus Capture the roar of the crowd and the crack of the bat at a baseball game, but not the whir of autofocusing. The Samsung 18-200mm multi-purpose zoom lens has been optimized for movie recording, with a Voice Coil Motor (VCM) that eliminates noisy autofocusing. And since it's a linear motor, it gives you fast zoom tracking - automatically keeping your subject in focus when zooming in or out. Now you can shoot professional-quality video worthy of a Hollywood director, with just your camera.

From Arenas to Mountains in Just One Lens Leave all your other lenses home next time you go to a soccer match or out on a hike. With its incredibly extensive range of focal lengths, the Samsung 18-200mm multi-purpose zoom lens is ideal when you need to travel light. Since you won't be swapping out lenses, you won't miss recording that thrilling goal which you can play back again and again. And its 11x zoom lets you easily capture beautiful stills of distant landscapes.

Optical Image Stabilizer for Clear, Sharp Images Create beautiful images that move you, even if you jostle the camera. The 18-200mm zoom lens comes equipped with lens-shift optical image-stabilizing technology. Samsung's optical image stabilizer uses tiny lens-shifts to cancel out motion blur, even in low exposure shots. And since the image is being stabilized externally in the lens, what you see through the viewfinder--and on the display--is perfectly clear.

Ultra wide-angle 16mm (equivalent to 24.6mm in 35mm format) lens Extremely compact (0.94" long by 2.4" diameter) and lightweight (2.64 oz) lens This intuitive 16mm f/2.4 i-Function lens gives you quick and easy, one-touch access to all your camera's manual settings. Adjust shutter speed, aperture and more with just a twist of the lens while previewing the image in real-time. Now you can see how your settings affect the shot before you take it. Whether you're an enthusiast or an expert, the convenient i-Function lens truly revolves around your photographic needs. The Samsung 16mm pancake lens is one fast lens. Actually, it's the fastest of any ultra-wide compact system camera lens, thanks to its f/2.4 aperture, which also allows you to use faster shutter speeds. Ideal for wide landscapes, it also lets you create dramatic background blur effects for images that truly stand out.
