OK, I've done it..
8

Maybe I'm mad, but soon I should have all the lenses for the NX system, as well as an NX1 and Nx500!

Well, technically not all the lenses - I'd still be lacking the 18-55mm and 20-50mm, but I'm happy enough with the 16-50mm pz to bother with either of those!

I never intended to get all the lenses, but picked up some great deals along the way, and then it was getting to the point where I thought I may as well complete my collection!

I can't see myself wanting to switch systems anytime soon, which is a good job really ☺

At this point I really only want to add both s lenses, but don't want to spend $1800 to do it!

Congrats on your collection!

If you have one - too many - 50-150, let me know!

Which ones are your favorite? and why?!

Go buy the last 2, they are cheap, and you will be complete !

I have the 2 S lenses, 30, 45, 60, 16-50 pz and the Samyang 12mmm. I want the 85mm and sometimes, a few times I think,  I needed (?) a wider lens than 12mm, but I'm not sure if that's the 10mm or the 8mm. All the other lenses are fully covered and you don't need them. But if you want to complete the collection, it's OK with me, do it, you don't have to pay that much especially with the primes. I saw someone selling a used 20mm in a very good condition for just 80€ but I didn't get in temptation. A temptation for me is only the 85mm, I saw it on ebay for just 405€ but I didn't catch it, someone else was the lucky one. But I just bought the SEF580 for 245€ and I am waiting from a friend of mine to bring it from USA.

My favourite combination has to be the nx1 plus 16-50s, but to be honest all of the lenses have their merits. If I'm travelling light and shooting a lot of video, you can't beat the nx500 plus pz. The 10,16,20,30 and 45 are so portable as well they're great options too - I'm yet to receive the 12-24mm but I'm looking forward to using this as a portable landscape option, or just for general use stills in good light.

And even the 18-200 is great for times when I need just one flexible lens, other times I need telephoto the 50-150 will be better and I can't see myself ever using the 50-200 again.

I think you're right I may as well get the 20-50 and 18-55 just to compete the collection!

Now you only have to make your NX1 shoot video at 25600 ISO, and you are ready to go

Re: OK, I've done it..

Congrats and enjoy! Where did you purchase your lenses from?

I'm thinking of picking up a used NX500 for ~AUD$500 as a cheap, but good time lapse camera so I don't prematurely wear out the shutter on my NX1 (and also allow me to do something else while time lapsing).  I'm still thinking about the 85mm eventhough I'll hardly use it......

I love the NX500 as a portable alternative to the NX1 - the only thing I miss from the NX1 is not having the crop in 4k mode, but actually having the crop can be an advantage in some situations and the 1080p output is very very good.

I hardly use my 85mm but when I do, wow!

I got most of the lenses from Ebay.  I first started out with an NX1000 bundled with 20-50mm and 50-200mm in 2014.  Since then I've slowly built up the collection - next I got the 30mm, then 16-50pz, 45mm, then 10mm, 60mm and 85mm, 12m samyang, 16-50s, 18-200mm and now the 50-150mm and 12-24mm..

Along the way I've sold some and then bought them back at a later date!

Re: OK, I've done it..

I've decided that I'm not going to try to complete the collection. In fact, I'm looking to offload some of the lenses that I'm not using very often, or at all.

If anyone's interested please have a look here;
