Samsung 20-50 lens not compatible with NX camera ?
Mar 9, 2012

Hi forum,

Needed a sturdy integrated viewfinder camera giving APSC image quality and compactness , to be bumped around in a variety of outdoor activities, so I decided for a NX11 with the 20to 50mm. Definitely the 20-50 as there where reports of breaking plastic flanges in the heavier 18-55 and my camera is going to live a bumpy life indeed.

Making a last check on the net I found a test including the 20-50 which reported an incompability with the NX10 body:

This sounded alarming and digging deeper I did find , buried deep in the webpages of Samsung , a page for compatibility checking:

http://www.samsung.com/uk/consumer/camera-camcorder/nx-system/nx-lenses/EX-S2050NB?subsubtype=zoom-lens
Typing in NX11, or the whole product type EV-NX11ZZBABSE, gives the result:
“Your Product is not compatible!
This accessory is not guaranteed to work with your product. “

Bizarre, I don’t know what expression to use, is Samsung “shooting itself the knee” ?

I than spent an hour or two trying to figure out how to contact Samsung and get some clarification to “not guaranteed to work ”, but their defence system against any sort of inquiries is flawless.

Does anyone on the forum have any success with the NX11 and 20-50mm combination ?

Rolf
