Samsung intros five new NX camera lenses
Samsung today brought out details of five lenses for the NX swappable lens system found on cameras like the NX11. The company is catering first to everyday users with an 18-200mm, f3.5-6.3 long zoom lens to cover most shooting situations with a single lens. While image stabilized, it won't have a silent autofocus system and is likely targeted at newcomers who want an all-purpose lens.
