Samsung NX1000 Digital Camera Review$699.00
The 20-50mm kit lens on the NX1000 has a maximum aperture of 3.5-5.6 and a minimum aperture of f/22. In our test images from our resolution test, we saw only minor chromatic issues at the corners at the extremes of the aperture range. This was less than we typically see from other cameras, with a slight green tinge around edges at the corner of the frame. Otherwise, the NX1000 had very little noticeable chromatic aberration.
Distortion on the NX1000 was kept to a minimum with the 20-50mm kit lens. We found an average pincushion distortion of just 0.28% at the wide end (20mm), which increased to around 0.68% at the telephoto end. In the middle distortion hit roughly 0.44%, tested at the 35mm focal length. While this lack of distortion may be due to the lens's smaller focal length, it could also be due to in-camera corrections adjusting the horizon line to straighten out lines that were distorted by the lens' optics.
