Viltrox has just issued an official statement, where they say that the Viltrox 23mm f/1.4, Viltrox 33mm f/1.4 and Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 can damage your Fujifilm X-Pro3.

The reason, so I have been told, is that the location of the lens release button on the Fujifilm X-Pro3 is too close to the bayonet.

Here is what Viltrox writes.

1) Kind Reminder for Fujifilm X-Pro3 Users:

For the sake of your camera, it would be better not use Viltrox 23mm, 33mm or 85mm X mount lens onto Fujifilm X-PRO3 model in case it will damage your camera. Due to the structural conflict, they will scratch a little bit against each other. We apologize for any inconvenience caused!

2) Lens Profiles of Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 STM(E) Lens

For your convenience of lens corrections on Photoshop or Lightroom, we have uploaded Lens Profiles of Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 STM(E) Lens on Vitlrox website www.viltrox.com (Home – Download – Firmware – Upgrading

Let’s hope the upcoming Tokina equivalent X mount lenses won’t have this problem.
