Trinity combo

What would be a good trinity lens for Samsung NX? i'm thinking of : 16mm f2.4 45mm f1.8 85mm f1.4

Hello, I have an NX10 + 30mm f/2 combo and recently ordered the 16mm and 85mm. Your trinity lens set should be great if the future 45/1.8 is good. However, the NX 30mm lens is so good that that a "trinity" lens set should (or must ?!) include this lens ! David

It all depends on what you want to shoot and how small/light you want to keep your bag. The 85mm f1.4 surely is a must-have for stunning head and shoulders portraits, but not everybody takes enough of such portraits to justify the investment in a premium lens. Also, the 85mm f1.4 is neither compact nor lightweight so it is more likely to be left at home. The same goes for the 60mm f2.8 macro lens. On the portable primes side, I'd say that the 30mm f2 is the one to have if you can have just one (no need for a bag, it fits your pocket). But assuming the 45mm f1.8 will be good,I think I will go for the 16 + 45 combo if I need to choose two (for Street Photography, this combo is very promising). Now for those that prefer zooms, the NX system should IMO no wait too long before covering the same 16-45 range with a bright f2.8 lens.

I have recently been thinking the 16, 30 and 50-200 would cover just about everything...

I really like this trio, great choices.

16,45,85 sounds about right for the trinity. But.... the 45mm just isnt sexy enough, f1.8 is a bit bread'n'butter f1.2 would make the trinity holy.

I second that!

To my taste, there is too much of a gap between 16 and 45 mm. I settled on 16mm, 30mm, and then after some mulling over 45mm, 60mm, 85mm and 50-200mm, ended up with a 58mm Rokkor. No regrets. In other words, you'd want to be doubling your focal length with every step.
