Viltrox 85mm f1.8 STM Lens Review: For Fujifilm X Series

Viltrox 85mm fuji

Lens mechanics Viltrox 85mm F1. At least from what I found, I think once you reach about f5. If you like to shoot portraits at wide open aperture I wish I had more opportunity to do so, when I had this lens to review to get that silky smooth looking background where everything melts away, this is your lens. So I am also happy enough to use this Viltrox lens with the X-H1. Fujifilm has released a ton of great lenses over the years, and has pretty much covered their bases when it comes to focal lengths except maybe in the ultra long telephoto area. Look forward to seeing the review develop and keep up the great videos. My friend recently borrowed this Viltrox 85mm to try on his Fuji X-H1 and focus speed is significantly slower — about 2-3x times in low light comparing to Fuji X-T30, that is due to camera processor.

There is no manual aperture ring here, as, unlike the 20mm F1. But still interesting to see the cheap lens on the old camera hold its own against its younger sibling equipped with a top tier lens. From the other side looks like that lens internal focusing does not require external air ventilation, so this Viltrox 85mm should not collect external dust during focusing which is great. With that said, it was still easy to shoot with. Sure enough, I checked, and there is a firmware update for the lens that will fix this issue. Looks like there is also electronic drive which controls aperture. But after contacting Viltrox they issued a new firmware after roughly 48 hours that fixed everything.

There are other autofocus third party lenses out there like the wonderful Zeiss Touit series but a lot of other lenses are manual only. The parts and frame construction look high end with very good precision and very accurate factory assembly. But not all lenses are equal in terms of the bokeh quality. After that unscrew three small black bolts around rear lens. Looks like only very little plastic is used for aperture module frame, but everything else is precisely machined from metal.

I believe the vignette penetrates so far into the frame that the surprisingly robust vignette lift at F2 actually allows for a brighter result even with equal settings. This one is also large enough. I realized that upper securing ring above rear element is also additionally secured with glue on factory. My advice: treat this lens like an F2 lens unless you actually desire the vignette effect. So far I have only had a X-Pro1 and X-E3 at hand to test the lens on. All trademarks and brands belong to their respective owners.

It also can start hunting a bit. Since this third party lens has autofocus i was very interested to do this. Just wondering what is the firmware version of the 85mm lens you tested? This simplifies the lens for many shooters and makes it easier to use. But tricky to determine beforehand as I need to buying these lens hoods online so no way to test them out first. At least my copy is very difficult to put on and remove. Monday was quite busy, to spending evening exploring interesting lens was nicely balanced and relaxed time spending.

This is where this lens shines in my opinion. Thank you very much Yuri for your feedback. . It all depends on the internal diameter of the hood. The lens focuses internally and so the overall length does not change. It will take 5% off your entire order! It feels better in the hand than the native Fuji primes. One new lens that I recently tested that comes in X Mount is the.
