Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 Overview

  • 1Description

A short-telephoto well-suited to portraiture, the FUJIFILM X PFU RBMH 85mm f/1.8 STM from Viltrox is also characterized by its bright f/1.8 maximum aperture, which excels in difficult lighting as well as benefits working with shallow depth of field techniques. The optical design comprises one extra-low dispersion element, along with four elements made from highly transparent glass, that aids in reducing chromatic and spherical aberrations in order to realize high clarity and sharpness. An HD Nano multi-layer coating has also been applied to suppress flare and ghosting for improved contrast when working in strong lighting conditions. Additionally, the lens features an STM motor for quick, quiet autofocus performance along with a minimum focusing distance of 2.6' for working with close-up subjects.

Portrait-length prime is designed for APS-C-format FUJIFILM X-mount mirrorless cameras and provides a 127.5mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also offers a wealth of control over focus position when using shallow depth of field techniques.
One extra-low dispersion element and four elements made from highly transparent glass contribute to reducing a variety of aberrations in order to produce well-corrected imagery with accurate color and high sharpness.
HD Nano multi-layer coating has been applied to individual elements to reduce flare and ghosting for improved contrast. Also, this coating is water-resistant to help protect the exposed surfaces from moisture.
STM autofocus motor delivers quiet and precise focusing performance along with a minimum focusing distance of 2.6'.
Electronic contacts convey Exif data as well as permit camera-based aperture selection.

    Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 Reviews

    PFU RBMH 85mm f/1.8 STM Lens for FUJIFILM X is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from stops the wireless process when lens attached so I got this lens, it looks good and feels good in hand, sharp from 2.2 but when attached to x-t3, the network wireless function does not work. tested with two cameras and fuji lenses, it only happens when this lens is attched

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simply outstanding. Little to fault here, TBH. Focusing on newer bodies is quick and accurate, even in AF-C mode. Centre sharpness is excellent at 1.8, and improves stopped down (as per most lenses). AF speed is ever-so-slightly slower than the Fuji 90/2, but the price more than makes up for this. I wish Viltrox would make their AF adapters this good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from viltrox I own both the 90mm f2.0 and i just received my viltrox 85mm f1.8. I put it to test and I cant find anything different from the xf 90mm. This lens is sharp and focus fast. the color rendering is on par with the 90mm. this is an excellent lens for $379. if you are in portrait photography. please go for it, and save your money and get a wide angle lens like the xf 23 f2.0 or the xf 16 f2.8.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome lens! Im very pleased with the lens. Focus is accurate on my Fujifilm bodies. Good build quality. I really do not see a need to purchase the higher priced Fujifilm 90mm f/2 lens. This lens does the job very well, indeed. It is sharp straight to the corners since it is designed for full frame.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from viltrox 85mm f1.8 I own the 90mm f2.0 and I just picked up the viltrox 85mm f1.8. There is no difference between those two lenses in sharpness, in autofocus. this lens is excellent, if you doing portrait go for it and save a few hundred dollars for a wide angle lens like the 23mm f2.0 or the 16 f2.8. unless you try this lens, you wont believe how good this lens is. I am putting my 90mm f2.0 for sale on ebay.

    My question is about autofocus, and the context ...

    My question is about autofocus, and the context is video. Will this lens allow the face detect feature to work in the video mode on the XT-3? I'm very dependent on having this on as often I cannot be behind the camera monitoring the focus.
