Samsung is launching five new lenses for its NX Series of mirror-less cameras, porting the number of lenses to 10 for that system. The lenses also feature Samsung’s i-Function that lets the user use one physical control (a ring on the lens) to tweak various parameters of the camera. There’s something for everyone. For example, if you are into taking photos without using a flash, Samsung has a few “fast” lenses: the 16mm f2.4 pancake, the 60mm f2.8 and the 85mm f1.4. The latter can be great for taking portraits during indoor events. If you would rather have a “do-it-all” lens, the 18-200mm f3.5-6.3 should work nicely outdoors.  There is also a 16-80mm f3.5-4.5 that will get the job done if you don’t want an extreme zoom.

Despite being announced now, all the lenses won’t be available right away. Here’s the schedule: 18-200 (May), 16mm (July), 60mm (August), 85mm (October), 16-80 (December). Tentalizing, no?
