any good value lenses i can get for the above? i dont mind a manual for the prime lens

but any good zoom lenses with af for nx...?

thanks

My favorite Samsung lenses:

12-24mm f/4-5.6, 16mm f/2.4, 30mm f/2, 45mm f/1.8, 60mm f/2.8 macro, and 85mm f/1.4

Large list I know, the 45mm f/1.8 is small, gives good bokeh, but might not be wide enough.  The 30mm is great and a lot wider (standard).  For individual shots the 45, 60 and 85 are going to be nice and for entire family shots the 30mm f/2 (depending on how many people in your family :)).

For zoom lenses the 20-50mm has nice bokeh but is slow focusing and no OIS.  The 18-55mm is maybe a bit harsher bokeh but fast focusing and has OIS.  The 50-200 I hear is pretty decent.

I am not a zoom shooter so can't help much there.
