Samsung 50-150mm F2.8 S Lens is big and sturdy (pictures)

At about 2 pounds, it's also relatively light for a fast zoom.

Still pretty big

The size of a large travel mug, at about 2 pounds the lens is still pretty big, though still far lighter than equivalent lenses designed for full-frame cameras.

Controls

In addition to supporting Samsung's i-Function system, the lens has a custom focus limiter. Both work in conjunction with settings you make within the camera body. There's also a lock dial.

Round aperture

The lens uses a rounded, 9-blade aperture, as you'd expect from a lens this expensive.

Like the rest of the lens, the mount is made of metal.
