Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 AF X Mount vs Samyang 85/1.8, Disassembly, 12 Hour Wedding and More



The Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 autofocus lens is the new favorite third party lens amongst Fujifilm X shooters.

It is the 4th third party autofocus lens for Fujifilm X mount (the other three are the Zeiss 12mm f/2.8, 32mm f/1.8 and 50mm f/2.8 1:1 Macro), but the Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 is the first reverse-engineered one, meaning they got no help from Fujifilm at all.

A brave move by Viltrox, that seens to pay off well for the company. At least amongst FujiRumors readers, the Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 is a best seller.

Well done Viltrox, and we look forward to the next three Fujifilm X mount AF lenses in the pipeline.
