Samsung NX1000 Digital Camera Review$699.00
Paired with the 20-50mm, f/3.5-5.6 lens, the Samsung NX1000 did well in our sharpness tests. The camera had solid performance in the center of the frame, with the edges showing some falloff. The camera did oversharpen its shots, however, with the default JPEGs showing as much as a 20% increase in contrast due to haloing around these areas.
We did find that the camera kept distortion in check, perhaps due to the camera's truncated focal range relative to most kit lenses. Where most lenses push the wide angle to 18mm (generally increasing barrel distortion), the Samsung NX1000's 20mm wide angle had distortion results that were more palatable, though they may still be subject to in-camera correction when capturing JPEGs. More on how we test sharpness.
