Pros: Outstanding clean and elegant finish. Tight assembly. Light (!!!) - it balances very fine on a small Fuji body (XT-2 and XT-1 in my case). Very comfortable to hold. Extremely fast AF. Fantastic ability to find and hold on to eye and face in eye-focus mode. Good close focus on aps-c sensor. Silent. Good price (320 EUR here).

Cons: Small amount of blue fringing in ***extremely*** backlit images - corrected 100% in my software. No problem.

Opinion: After getting my fingers burnt on many Fuji lenses (super expensive but only average image quality) and having browsed sample images of fellow photographers I decided to give Viltrox a chance. So far so good - the lens is super elegant and seems very well made. AF is extremely fast, silent and sure. Eye and face focus work like a dream too. It is very comfortable to hold. Manual focus ring is smooth and precise. This lens is in my opinion 10/10 in aesthetics and mechanical properties. I will report on its optical properties when I have shot first 1000 images with it. By now I only shot a few test shots so I can only say the bokeh on aps-c Fuji body is spectacular - by far the best I have seen from any Fuji lens so far - it is smooth, it is soft and creamy - exactly what I want it to be.

Pros: Sharpness, construction, price

Cons: Lens hood

Opinion: My impressions are in line with those that preceded me in the review. Recently purchased, at the first use I was satisfied with this lens, which already behaves very well at full aperture. Unbeatable price quality in my opinion (since for Fuji the alternatives are not many). The only sore point is the hood that, in addition to being made of plastic unlike the younger brothers Viltrox, is really difficult to mount both in mode of use and at rest, it is really difficult to insert it at first glance without running the risk of ruining the thread. Too bad. All in all, however, apart from the hood, it is a lens that deserves. Advised

Pros: I confirm all the positive things that others have already said.

Cons: Light vignetting easily eliminated. Hood: in an inverted position it is not possible to block, while in operation it does not create problems.

Opinion: Combined with Z6 and taken from Foto Colombo at a very advantageous price with an official 2-year warranty. Feeling of solidity and well finished; to be confirmed over time. Compared with Nikon 85mm f/1.8G, even at T.A., I did not perceive any differences visible to the eye, except for the aforementioned modest vignetting. It costs about 1/3 of the original Z series, but it is to be purchased first of all for the excellent overall performance. Obviously the classic quality/price ratio is unbeatable. Without a doubt vote 10.

Pros: Weight, build quality, optical quality, fast maf, a blade even at TA

Cons: light TA vignetting but there is

Opinion: After having had for a while the Fuji 90mm f2 I decided to buy some time ago this Viltrox 85mm 1.8 ... moral of the story ... Fuji sold, and Viltrox in my optical park... and that says a lot. Incrediblely engraved also in TA, fast focus, pleasant detachment of the subjects ... I did several outdoor shoots this summer and in many jobs I DECIDED to work mainly with this Viltrox for at least 80% of the shots ... the quality that comes out of it is incredible, the sharpness even at TA from applause ... and remember that it is still a lens that costs less than € 400. It is the second Viltrox lens that I keep pleasantly in my kit after giving away the respective Fuji (23mm and 90mm).

Pros: Build quality, sharpness, blur quality, overall performance

Cons: Hood mounting mechanism, chromatic aberration, lack of diaphragm ring, small AF uncertainties (Fujifilm X-T20)

Opinion: At the constructive level it looks very good, a beautiful piece of solid metal, with a not exaggerated weight and pleasant proportions. The focus ring is nice spacious and convenient to use. Its hardness is well calibrated for a palm grip, given the important size, but if you go to adjust with your fingertips as you are led more often to do, it is perhaps a little harder than the optimal comfort zone. However, it remains a pleasant experience. A great pity the lack of the diaphragm ring, but if it had to be without shots as in the Viltrox models with shorter focal length, perhaps it is better this way. On the side of the bayonet there is a micro USB port with which you can connect the lens to the PC in order to make firmware updates. The process is very simple, but the manufacturer could certainly engage a little more in the documentation (it is a couple of pages written on the fly with Word, without any formatting and with a lot of screenshots in Chinese), since it is not a 20 € plastic. But that's okay. What is not good at all is the mounting system of the hood: here it comes out of arrogance where Viltrox has saved: it is a system simply flawed and if I had not read negative comments about it before buying the lens, I would have considered it as defective. It is very hard to assemble and never goes to its seat on the first attempt. You have to stay there to try and try again with the risk of sliding everything to the ground, since it requires a lot of strength. Fortunately the plastic is quite resistant and at the moment I have not noticed fraying due to excessive handling. One word: very bad. I used this lens mainly for portrait photos and in different light conditions, and I must say that I am very satisfied with the returned look. The blur is extremely pleasant, the image is microcontrasted the right and the level of detail is elevated already to TA, to become excellent as soon as it closes by 1 stop. At F2.8 even at the edges everything is perfectly sharp. There is only one small, big problem: the lens suffers from chromatic aberration in an exaggerated way! Particularly in conditions of direct sunlight and in situations of strong contrast. If even a ray of sunlight falls on the subject, fuchsia bands appear on the edges. The serious thing is that the problem is also present in the center of the frame. And there is no way to limit the phenomenon in an acceptable way if not closing at F4! In the interiors or in shady areas there is no problem, but for TA photos under the sun, even of a faint autumn sunset, you have to take into account this big problem. The AF is quite responsive: in quiet situations the lens can easily keep up with the camera inputs. In the case of fast-moving subjects, such as a child running in our direction, we must take several photos in sequence to hope to have 1-2 in focus on the face. In short, fast but not a lightning bolt on X-T20. On two occasions I found the camera completely broken down with the lens that was constantly focus hunting: the first time it was resolved after a few seconds, the second time I had to restart the camera. It is difficult to say if it was a problem with the lens or a software glitch of the X-T20, but it seems right to report the problem.
