It works great on NX11, maybe not everything is compatible?  Like I know 3d portion of 3d version wouldn't work, etc.

I will try to snap a few pics with it later and make sure it focuses accurately, etc.


Eric, not pushing, but... Did you find the time to check the 45's focus on the NX11?

And while you're at it, (I could have overlooked but don't see anything mentioned about the 45's low light AF) can you check how it does in (real) low light? Would be nice.

At EV 1 (ISO 100, 1.6", f/1.8), the focus was still almost instant, but when the light dropped more than that it totally failed to focus.  Have to remember that contrast detect works fast as long as there is enough contrast and the sensor can gain the video signal up enough to make it so it can still see edges.
