Footnotes:
1 Samyang lenses are distributed by several local brands, e.g. Bell and Howell, Bower, Falcon, Opteka, Polar, Pro-Optic, Rokinon, Vivitar or Walimex.
2 The lenses are distributed by local distributors and therefore the prices are different in each region.

    Hi Matt,
    I have just purchased the new 16-50/3.5-5.6 PZ OIS for my NX2000 and found out that the camera does not record properly the lens info in the EXIF. Do you have any ide why might that be? I have the latest fw on both the camera and the lens and the camera does record lens info with my 20/2.8.
    Thank you,
    Peter

      Hi Peter,
      the lens name is not recorded properly on NX cameras, that’s a problem I have aswell with different lenses and bodies. The aperture and focal length is recorded properly though. I don’t have a solution yet, I am correcting the RAW files with exiftool/LensTagger if needed.
      Cheers, Matt

    Hallo! Welche Linse wäre am ehesten für nicht-profimäßige Urlaubsfotografie zu empfehlen?

    1. Matt Everglade

      Hi, da reicht oft schon die Kit-Linse, bspw. das 16-60 PZ und evtl. das 50-20mm oder eine lichstärkere Linse. Je nach Neigung kann man dann noch weitere Linsen dazunehmen, aber das hängt sehr vom eigenen Geschmack und den Motiven oder Zielen ab. Ich nutze im Urlaub fast nur das Samyang 12mm, Samsung 16-50 PZ, Samsung 50-200 und selten das 30mm oder eine Makro-Linse.

      1. Tom

        Super, danke! Im Kit war die 16-50 mm enthalten. Lohnt sich ein Tausch gegen das 18-55 mm oder bringt das keinen Unterschied?

        1. Matt Everglade

          Die Vorteile des 16-50mm PZ überwiegen m.E. die Vorteile des 18-55mm. Daher würde ich persönlich dabei bleiben.
