Viltrox 75mm f/1.2 Reviews – The Praise Continues!

The Viltrox 75mm f/1.2 keeps up getting excellent reviews.

Down below is a video by Damian and also Opticallimits posted its review.

Opticallimits gives it a “highly recommended” and concludes:


The Viltrox AF 75mm f/1.2 PRO XF has two main competitors within the Fujifilm camp – the new Fujinon 56mm f/1.2 R WR and the 90mm f/2 R WR. The 90mm f/2 R WR is an outstanding lens and the new 56mm f/1.2 is certainly no slouch either. However, both are substantially more expensive. The Fujinon XF 90mm f/2 R WR has a linear AF motor so if you need a really fast AF, it may be a better choice.


[…] The f/1.2 setting is perfectly usable with a very sharp center quality and pretty good corners/borders. The center is tack sharp at f/1.6. The outer image field doesn’t improve that much when stopping down but they have a nice peak quality at f/5.6 if you want to push it. Lateral CAs as well as image distortions are basically absent. Surprisingly, axial CAs (LoCAs) are also very low at f/1.2 and gone from f/2 already. We also didn’t notice any purple fringing at large aperture settings. The vignetting is a bit on the high side at f/1.2 but image-auto correction can mostly fix this for you. Besides being capable of producing a very shallow depth-of-field in the first place, the bokeh is also very nice, especially in the image background. Out-of-focus highlights are a bit too prone to producing “cat eyes” though.
Another highlight of the Viltrox lens is its high build quality which is easily on the level of the best Fujinon lenses. The lens feels reassuringly sturdy thanks to a metal body and the inner focusing system. The added weather-sealing also illustrates the high ambitions that Viltrox has with this lens. […] The AF may not be the fastest on the planet but it does a decent job.

The Viltrox is becoming a force to be reckoned with now. Given the degree of refinement of the AF 75mm f/1.2 PRO XF, they are now truly competing with the big boys – at a much lower price. While not perfect in every aspect, it is impressive what the lens can do for you straight from f/1.2. As such, it receives our “highly recommended” badge..

Meet the Viltrox 75mm f/1.2 PRO Autofocus Lens for Fujifilm X Mount – Coming Soon

It’s true, I’ve told you in a previous post that I am not sure I’d be able to report about it, since I am hiking on the Dolomites this weekend, sleeping in mountain huts and enjoying spectacular views.

But what Viltrox just dropped is worth to stop the hiking for a while, find a spot with decent 4G, and quickly report about it.

At Chinese photography fair, Viltrox has just displayed the new Viltrox 75mm f/1.2 autofocus lens for Fujifilm X Mount.

The images start to circulate on the Chinese social media platform Weibo and you can find all of them right here on FujiRumors.

  • has MF/AF switch
  • a silver “PRO” logo on the lens
  • coming 4th quarter of this year

And if you don’t mind, I have still a couple of hours to hike now, but I’ll tune in every now and then to give you all the updates you need to know.

Because FujiRumors is here for you 24×7 and 365 days a year ;).
