Looks nice! I haven't actually used any of the 50-200mm lenses yet, how is it compared to the other two? Is the metal mount new?


I have the first version and it has a metal mount already.

Does it look the same from behind - I mean the special shield behind the last lens?

It looks exactly the same, I would say that cosmeticly, the only diference is with the ifn button which is not present on mine.


what are Your experiences according the feel when zooming and manual focussing?

How noisy is the old, compared to the 20-50 and 12-24?

Have You experiences with the AF speed in low light in conjunction with the NX1000?


I have the feel, that the focus speed gets slower with increasing focal range.

Did You make similar observations?

How good was the OIS?


Or in general, what were the pros / cons with the old lens...

...and could You please put Your sample (without hood, cap etc.) on a balance,

that one can make assumptions, to less obvious changes?


The new version has a weight of 402g (14,2 oz)
