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 :
- 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
- Manual lens, so not for fast action portrait
- CA when facing sun
For 265 euros , highly recommended !
