Viltrox, which makes LED lights, LCD monitors and lens adapters, has released its first prime lenses, for Sony FE-mount, Nikon Z-mount and Fuji X-mount cameras.
It now has five lenses aimed at a budget market, all with a wide aperture of f1.8. There are two 20mm lenses, FE and Z-mount, both manual focus with 12 elements in nine groups and 14 aperture blades for pleasing bokeh, and three 85mm variants – two FE-mount, manual and auto focus, and an X-mount AF, which is claimed to be the first third-party Fuji auto focus lens.
The 85mm AF lenses share the same optical construction of ten elements in seven groups, with fast, precise auto-focusing using an inbuilt STM motor and round bokeh created by nine aperture blades. The FE 85mm lens supports eye-AF and continuous focus in video. A USB port is included for firmware updates.
Viltrox is currently developing further Fuji/Sony AF lenses (including 23, 33 and 56mm f1.4).
Viltrox is exhibiting at IBC2019 on Stand 12.G70.
