The Samsung NX series looks set to bolster its current NX10 and NX100 Micro System Camera lineup with a host of new lenses – taking the total to 10 by the end of next year.

Alongside the current NX-mount 30mm f/2.8, 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS and 18-200mm f/4-5.6 OIS, a new 20-50mm f/3.5-5.6 lens will ship with the NX100 as its standard kit, and a new 20mm macro f/2.8 is also imminently due.

In the first half of 2011 the NX will see a 60mm macro and 18-200mm OIS superzoom, neither of which have further or full details as yet. The second half of 2011 will introduce two prime lenses – a 16mm and 85mm – though, again, full details and aperture information is currently unknown. Lastly a 16-80mm zoom lens will also become available in the latter half of 2011, which tots up the total range of lenses to 10.

Although the total number won’t quite surpass the volume of Micro Four Thirds mount lenses available for Panasonic G-series and Olympus PEN cameras, it’s not far behind and is an assurance that Samsung is putting its all into pushing the NX system forward to a successful future. More news and full lens tests as and when we are able to get hold of final samples.
