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
Very nice lens
Love the lens
Affordable 3rd party option for Nikon
I really couldn't be happier with the purchase of this lens. The construction is very solid, the focus ring is very comfortable and has a smooth action. The auto focus is very fast and silent. And the optical performance is excellent. Razor sharp at the center, even at maximum aperture.
Works great, buttery smooth and I probably will not buy a canon 85mm because this was such a great purchase. I have a canon r6.
I was skeptical when I bought this, worried that a low price and good performance were incompatible. But having used in several shoots now, I'm very pleased. It's sharp, the bokeh is lovely, it works beautifully with my Z6, and it focuses well (though it can struggle a bit in very low light situations). I'm also very surprised and impressed by the build quality and design. I couldn't be more pleased.
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.
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.
Well built.Fits my Z6 better than the Nikkor's I have.No switches or buttons.AF or manual impulsively.Very happy so far.
Does not maintain manual focus for astro imaging
I achieve perfect focus. Test shot is good with stars in good focus. As I start taking the next shots, the focus point changes and the stars get blurred. So, the lens is unable to maintain focus. I do not know if there is something that can be done to fix this problem.
