not bad - I guess the silver ring makes it easy to identify in a bag - anyone know what the macro ratio is?

There are two rings on this.. as on the 85mm: does that mean one is focus and one is i-function?

Yes, the thinner one close to iFunction button is for iFn, wider one for MF. In pancakes there is only one, common for both functions.

Wow, this is the lens I've been waiting for, but the post is a bit short on info. Is this lens coming out soon (UK). Have I missed some earlier news item. Hopefully it will double as a workable portrait lens. Now all we need is something long to shoot wildlife. A fair range of gear all in a small bag.

Most likely, this product images that will be shown in Las Vegas. If they were available I'd have them already.

Well, it lens is from Optima series, like 18-55mm kit and 50-200mm, the next 18-200mm is from Omnia series and should have a SSA too.
That lens look good and Samsung is changing the looks of the lenses.

I agree. That lens look gorgeous. Now my only wish is that Samsung would come up with better looking neck straps for nx series.

This is all great, really good that they are rolling out a range of primes.. but am still waiting for the 20mm to be available in UK! At this rate they will launch the 16mm before we can even buy the 20mm. Grrrr

I'd be surprised if it were anything else than 1:1

The lens looks good and might be my 3rd NX lens when (if) it is available in my country.

Samsung seems to have some strange problems with logistics. For example, right now there are no 30mm pancake lenses available in my country - they're out of stock everywhere. People familiar with the matter say there were no shipments of NX lenses and accessories since September.

Maybe Samsung prepares iFn version of 30mm pancake and that's why it's out of the stock.

I certainly hope so.

Looks fine, but the lack of a distance scale and mag ratio scale is badly missed ( for a macro lens )

The 85mm is a exception, in system with contrast detect AF they don´t work through the object distance, any mirrorless system (Sony, Olympus, Panasonic) have distance scale.
