New Viltrox 33mm f/1.4 and 56mm f/1.4 Images

Viltrox

Recently Viltrox disclosed the official price in Chinese Yuan of the Viltrox 33mm f/1.4… and it’s a very aggressive one!

Now we have new images of the Viltrox 33mmm f/1.4 and Viltrox 56mm f/1.4 mounted on the Fujifilm X-T3. You can see them below.

The lenses were originally scheduled for release in 2019, but as we reported here, there will be a delay surely for the 33 and 56. The only lens that could still make it for 2019, is the Viltrox 23mm f/1.4, but there is a big “maybe” here.

The latest specs and images about all three upcoming Viltrox lenses can be found in this article.

And don’t forget to:

Viltrox 33mm f/1.4 Price Officially Disclosed

Viltrox has now disclosed the official price in Chinese Yuan of the Viltrox 33mm f/1.4.

The lens will cost 1,799 Yuan, which converted means USD 255.

This confirms the price tag of $250 given back in September.

As FujiRumors reported here, the release for the Viltrox 33mm f/1.4 and 56mm f/1.4 has been postponed to next year.

The only lens that could still make it for 2019, is the Viltrox 23mm f/1.4.

Viltrox 33mm f/1.4 and 56mm f/1.4 launch Postponed to Next Year

Viltrox Fujifilm

Back in September, Viltrox released specs and price for the new Viltrox 23mm f/1.4, 33mm f/1.4 and 56mm f/1.4.

They also said that the release of all three lenses was scheduled for December 2019.

However, I have been told (thanks) about a delay for the Viltrox 33mm f/1.4 and 56mm f/1.4.

Only the Viltrox 23mm f/1.4 could “maybe” still make it in time for December… take note of that “maybe”.

The only Viltrox lens for Fujifilm until now

Viltrox

A FR-reader shared with FujiRumors some flyers about the upcoming Viltrox lenses:

  • Viltrox 23mm f/1.4
  • Viltrox 33mm f/1.4
  • Viltrox 56mm f/1.4

Viltrox 23, 33 and 56 hands on images!

The flyers give a few more details to the ones already shared in this article as well as some correction (for example a slight weight increase in some cases and lens elements design changes for the 23mm f/1.4).

In the meantime, the Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 autofocus lens for Fujifilm X is a best seller and so far the feedback is definitely very positive. It’s not a Fujinon, but it’s also so much cheaper, that you definitely get great performance for little price.

Down below all the new details about the upcoming lenses.

NEW Images of Viltrox 23mm f/1.4, 33mm f/1.4 and 56mm f/1.4 Autofocus Lenses for Fujifilm X

Just yesterday FujiRumors reported first the news about the first images and specs of the upcoming Viltrox 23mm f/1.4, 33mm f/1.4 and 56mm f/1.4.

Now Viltrox uploaded additional images on their weibo account, that you can all see down below.

Note that all lenses have a dedicated aperture ring, as opposed to the Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 AF. Personally I consider this a fantastic news.

Fujinon XF 33mm f/1.0 Listed for $2,350 at Romanian Store

XF33mm f/1.0

A Romanian store has the Fujinon XF 33mm f/1.0 R WR listed at their store for $2,350. That’s definitely a better price than the $3,100 listed at the Czech store a few months ago here.

Now, I think that this is just a price holder and not based on real information they have. But it’s a good opportunity for us to talk about the XF 33mm f/1.0 pricing.

UPDATE: Mistral75 said in the comments:

The ROn 9,899.99 price includes the Romanian VAT (19%). You have to subtract the VAT amount to compute a USD price. The result is $1,976.84, say $1,999 when rounded.

The Right Price

In my opinion, Fujifilm must price the Fujinon XF33mm f/1.0 very aggressively, and as our Fujifilm XF 33m f/1.0 recommended price poll showed, already a $2,000 price tag would be a deal breaker for many.

The brand new full frame Panasonic Lumix S PRO 50mm f/1.4, which is an XF33mm f/1.0 equivalent, costs $2,300.

So Fujifilm can, under no circumstances, sell it higher than $2,300. But also, they should show the advantage of APS-C by pricing it lower than the Panasonic 50mm f/1.4.

And if Fujifilm thinks to set a higher price at the beginning, for later on offering some deals on it, then I allow myself to tell Fujifilm (who reads this blog and even adds those lenses to their roadmap, that the FujiRumors community recommended them to make), that this is a bad idea.

Just set a great price right from the start, and don’t launch any deals on it for a long time. You will start making money with this lens immediatly, instead of having to wait several months for finally selling it.

Considering the Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 sells for $1,000, anything between $1,200 and $1,500 would be a good price for the Fujinon XF 33mm f/1.0.

Dear Fujifilm, many credit cards (mine included) are ready to suffer right at announcement day. So don’t let this surely marvellous piece of lens engineering sit in warehouses unsold by setting a too high price tag.
