Have read a lot about this lens and macro. But how is it in low light for street photos? On NX500. The distance is fine from my windows. Thinking about images and videos for newspapers and TV stations. Also would use it for landscapes. No portraits, but sure macro. (The 85mm price around 30% higher and more limited use for what is mentioned.)

60mm is not fast focusing lens, like most macro. low light doesn't help here.

A bit large of course. And is it noisy?

not really, but is nore audible than s lenses.

Price about $450. Also one 16mm 2.4 (white) for $ 300, but not convinced about the quality. And do not miss it much walking around with the 30mm.

Thanks! Maybe the price is not so bad. Have no macro lenses so it's interesting anyway.

It can be a good portrait lens too. These prices are in the expensive side. Especially the 16mm "should" cost around 150$ used.

They may come down here or they may disappear. I will try the 50-200 in low light, at 60 to 80mm.
