Lens Description: The 50-150mm f2.8 S ED OIS Lens from Samsung features the NX mount and is a Premium "S" Series lens. It offers a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 77-231mm, making it suitable for portraits as well as sports photography and wildlife. Regardless of the focal length selected along the lens barrel, an f/2.8 maximum aperture can be selected to benefit low-light shooting or provide shallow depth of field. For a wider depth of field or to compensate for high shutter speeds that may otherwise be needed under very bright shooting conditions, the lens can be stopped down to f/22.Consisting of 20 elements in 13 groups, including four ED (extra-low dispersion) and one XHR (eXtreme High Refractive) element for excellent clarity, detail and sharpness, this 50-150mm also includes optical image stabilization. This feature helps prevent user movement from rendering an image unusable while handholding the lens and a compatible camera. An Ultra-Precise Stepping Motor (UPSM) improves upon the conventional Stepping Motor (SM), offering three times the precision in its ability to focus on subjects.
