The very first review of the new Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 FE lens has been posted by Marc Alhadeff on SonyAlphaBlog. And the lens is surprisingly good:

The Viltrox 85mm F1.8 PFU RMBH (265 euros) is an excellent surprise and a superb lens for portrait :

Pros

  • Very good to Excellent sharpness
  • Beautiful color rendition 
  • Very pleasing and soft blurry background ,
  • Very good bokeh,
  • Very low price ,
  • Very good build quality,
  • EXIF transmitted to the body,
  • Aperture control via the body
  • Strong vignetting but corrected via the Lightroom Zeiss Batis 85mm profile
  • Good resistance to flare

Cons

  • Manual lens, so not for fast action portrait
  • CA when facing sun

For 265 euros , highly recommended !
