NOTE: Samsung has shut down all firmware servers. I’ve most of them in a backup. You can contact me via e-mail for help, but I may answer slowly.

This table gives you an overview about the available native Samsung NX Lens Firmware versions of each lens revision.

You can download the current firmware files by clicking the version number or on your local Samsung website. A guide on how to update your firmware can be found on Samsung’s FAQ section: Firmware upgrade guide using i-Launcher.

    Hay Matt,
    I just bought samsung nx30 and little confused to choose lens betwen Samsung NX 50-200mm f4.0-5.6 ED OIS III and Samsung NX 18-200mm f3.5-6.3 ED OIS. since i am a beginner, could you please help which one i should choose between those lense.

    Many thanks for your help and looking for your help soon as possible

    1. Hello Marselino,

      The Samsung NX 18-200mm lens is mostly recommended for video recording, because its still picture quality is not adequate for a 20MP imaging sensor. It also has a very high price tag. I would only recommend it as a “swiss army knife” type of solution if you are afraid of exchanging lenses in the field. However, the NX30 features built-in ultrasonic cleaning for the imaging sensor, so dust ingestion shouldn’t be a big problem. (On the other hand some people are clumsy and may drop lenses while swapping them.)

      The Samsung NX 50-200mm tele lens has better still image quality, but it still lacks powerful apertures and may have a problem with autofocus in low light. In general the autofocus of NX 50-200mm is slow even in broad daylight. On the other hand, it is really affordabe!

      (If you have big funds, the NX 50-150mm S professional telephoto lens is better but may be an overkill for the NX30 body. Another solution could be the most excellent NX 85mm f/1,4 “portrait” lens with a 2x teleconverter, provided you can live with the fixed focal lenght and accept the high price tag.)

      Allegedly there will be a fixed 300mm f/2,8 pro-grade Samsung tele lens for the NX bayonet, but it is still in the prototype phase and the price will be very high anyhow.

      Best regards: Tamas Feher, Hungary.

      They are probably only waiting for getting the stock cleared in he US.
      NX is mostly dead all over the world, at least for now.

    Hi Matt,
    Thanks so much for keeping this web site going!
    I do have a question. The 50-200mm f4-5.6 OIS lens – what is the differences between the original and the II and III iterations?
    Thanks much,
    Lucy

    1. Matt Everglade

      AFAIK has the first revision no iFN button, the second and third have different coatings.
