Distinguished by its updated sleeker and lighter weight design, the Viltrox AF 85mm f/1.8 XF II is the second-generation of this portrait-length prime designed for FUJIFILM X-mount mirrorless cameras. The lens's short-telephoto focal length pairs with the bright f/1.8 design to suit working in a variety of lighting conditions and also for controlling depth of field and isolating subject matter. The optical design comprises one extra-low dispersion element, one aspherical element, and four elements made from highly transparent glass, which all help to reduce 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.

Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 STM II Reviews
An amazing 85!
I bought it instantly since I knew it would be pulled from the market, its fast and sharp. An 85 lens is not something I use often but this is perfect for when I do need it. Its only shortfall is that its really hazy when shooting backlit.
Fantastic for the money
I bought the Viltrox 85mm to replace the Rokinon manual focus 85mm. I am using it with the Fujifilm X-T2. The Viltrox is a far better lens with respect to image sharpness, even when using manual focus mode. I really love this lens, but I would strongly recommend using a ND filter with it, since this lens is all about using it at its widest or near widest openings. In many cases, you will need to use an ND filter to maximize the image fidelity as well as to achieve the outstanding bokeh that this lens offers at its widest apertures. One negative note - I wish images had just a little more contrast. That is my only reservation, but this minor issue can be very easily corrected in post.
This lens has a very solid build quality feel to it, the lens caps and hood attach easily, and the images are sharp with nice bokeh. Colors pre-edit look good and appear to be accurate. I shot the attached unedited jpeg photos in the shade during daytime at f/1.8 using a Canon R5.
You can't ask for more!
It's definitely worth of money. $399 for this lens could be a steal lol. Nice bokeh and it's much better than Sony 85mm f1.8. AF is fast enough. I heard that you can get f1.6 if you update firmware, but haven't tried that yet. Anyway it's as sharp as I expected.
Great budget 85mm!
The lens is great. Although I do wish they sent a cord to plug in with it to update the lens firmware. Other then that, it has been great to work with, used it at a local car show.
Great reach for travel.
Works great hand in hand with my 45mm for travel. Perfect combo for me.
This lens comes at a good price. I compared it to the Nikon 85mm f1.8G that I had. It's a little sharper. There is some CA but it is less than the Nikon 85mm f108G that I was replacing it with. AF works perfectly. Eye AF works great no complaints. The focus ring is vary smooth. It came with the latest firmware installed. Got lens profile for light room and Photoshop for Viltrox website. I am vary happy with this lens.
After missing out on the Samyang 85mm. I decided to buy this one before they were gone. So far I am very impressed for the quality of this lens ,especially for the price
