I am trying to decide between this one and the Fuji 23 mm f1.4. I know it’s 350 vs 899 and trying to understand the trade offs. Is this lens really that good at this price?
Asked by: shaaz
The Viltrox actually focuses significantly faster on my XT3 and XT30. The Fuji may be slightly *SLIGHTLY* sharper when fully open wide, but is noticeably slower and louder when focusing.
