Samsung 18-200 Impressions, Input?
Jul 21, 2014

I was in B&H when they opened this morning to look at additional lenses for my NX30 and NX300. Right now I have the 18-55 kit lens {2 of them}, and the 10mm fished (which I love).

On my Nikon D7000 I have a Nikon 18-200VR lens and I thought that might be a really good all around focal length to add. My impression right away of the Samsung 18-200 was that it is way too big and heavy to balance or use on either body. It seemed well constructed and solid.... But but just unrealistically heavy.

My thought now is to possibly add the 55-200mm lens.  I know it is a lesser lens and it isn't as good for video in terms of quiet focus,  but I just don't see putting that 18-200 on either of the Samsung bodies.
