Many innovations went into the Samsung 45mm mid-telephoto prime lens, all so it could accomplish one thing perfectly: produce portraits and still-lifes alive with emotion. A bright and large F1.8 aperture captures sharp details even in low-light situations, while naturally blurring the background for vivid contrast. And if you’re using the lens to shoot video, the smooth and silent autofocus system eliminates noisy whirring from the picture. Even though the lens’s compact body is crafted from solid metal, it’s lightweight, for excellent portability.

Bring out the details with bokeh backgrounds

Beautiful & natural out-of focus image
Take pictures that lovingly express the joy of a wedding or capture the glee on the face of a birthday girl, with the Samsung 45mm mid-telephoto prime lens. Its large F1.8 aperture enables fast shooting for excellent performance, even in low-lit settings. And its circular 9-blade diaphragm helps produce a shallow depth of field with bokeh that creates a sense of wonder. Thanks to superb sharpness and high contrast, you’ll enjoy foreground images with little to no distortion and backgrounds with a smooth, creamy blur.

Quietly captures professional quality

Smooth and silent AF System
While you can’t always demand quiet on the set, you can shoot high-quality video or snap crisp photos without the distracting whir of a noisy autofocus. The Samsung 45mm mid-telephoto prime lens uses a high-performance micro-stepping motor to ensure quiet operation. Because the action is smoother, picture-taking feels more natural. And when you play back your video, your audience will be able to focus on the sights and sounds you intended, not noise from your lens.

A compact lens that delivers immense results


High portability with compact size, lightweight
Shoot like a professional while traveling like a tourist. The pocket-sized Samsung 45mm mid-telephoto prime lens weighs a mere 115 grams for easy portability, even when you’re carrying several other lightweight and compact NX lenses. You’ll always be prepared for a perfect—and completely spontaneous—portrait moment.
