General info

1.Weather sealed
Samsung NX 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 ED OIS
Sony FE 35mm F2.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*

Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.

2.has or is a prime lens
Samsung NX 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 ED OIS
Sony FE 35mm F2.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*

A prime lens has a fixed focal length. In general, these are sharper, with a wider aperture.

3.Is a wide angle lens
Samsung NX 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 ED OIS
Sony FE 35mm F2.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*

A wide angle lens is great for capturing larger areas of a scene, such as when doing architectural or landscape photography.

Sony FE 35mm F2.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*

It comes with a lens hood so that you don’t have to buy it separately. These are used to block strong light sources, such as the sun, from the lens to prevent glare and lens flare.

6.Has a metal mount

A metal mount is generally superior to a plastic mount as it is more durable.

Optics

1.has built-in optical image stabilization
Samsung NX 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 ED OIS
Sony FE 35mm F2.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*

Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.

2.optical zoom

11x

1x

The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.

3.minimum angle of view

63°

At the longest end of the lens you get the narrowest angle of view. This allows you to fit a small portion of the scene into the photograph, such as when you are zooming in on a subject (based on APS-C format).

5.magnification

0.28x

0.12x

A true macro lens has a magnification of 1:1. This means that the image produced is a life-size representation of the subject being photographed.

Aperture

1.widest aperture

f/3.5

f/2.8

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.

A smaller aperture reduces the amount of light reaching the sensor. This is important in bright conditions where a wider aperture could result in your image being overexposed. Another advantage is that with a smaller aperture you get a greater depth of field, and can keep all of the image in focus.

4.Has rounded aperture blades

Sony FE 35mm F2.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*

Similar to the number of aperture blades, rounded blades affect the way the light gets through to the sensor. Rounded blades, often only found on more expensive lenses, improve the appearance of the out-of-focus areas. This allows you to attain better, softer looking bokeh in your photos.

The aperture controls how much light gets through to the camera’s sensor. More blades is often an indicator of a better quality lens. It also allows you to achieve much nicer looking bokeh when blurring out your background, whereas a lens with less blades will often produce harsher, more polygonal bokeh.

Focus

1.Has full-time manual focus
Samsung NX 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 ED OIS
Sony FE 35mm F2.8 ZA Carl Zeiss Sonnar T*

With full-time manual focus, you can move the focus ring whilst it is in AF (autofocus) mode. This means that you can make manual adjustments once the AF has finished, without changing to manual mode.

2.minimum focus distance

0.5m

0.35m

This is the closest distance that the lens can focus. A shorter minimum focus distance allows you to get closer to your subject, and is particularly important when doing macro photography.

3.Can focus to infinity

Many lenses allow you to focus to infinity. This is essential when you wish to take photos including far off objects, such as when shooting landscapes, in order to make sure everything is sharp and in focus.

4.Has focus motor

Lenses with a built-in focus motor can autofocus even if the camera does not have its own focus motor.

5.has a silent focus motor built into the lens

Lenses with built-in focus motor focus faster and more quietly than lenses without a focus motor which rely on the camera's body focus motor.
