Viltrox AF 23mm f/1.4 Reviews

Fine lens for the price!

By Vasile

I like third-party lenses because you can own a few lens at the cost of one single brand lens. Yes, it doesn't fully match to the Fuji original lenses but I can't complain much for the price plus the color of this lens it's just eye-catching)

Excellent Value

Sharp I.Q. Compact small and lightweight. Auto Focus speed (not the best) but better than average. Full Frame 35mm equivalent. Fun all around Focal Lens. Con: Not weathered sealed. No image stabilization. But, It is worth every dollar for my needs. You will have to pay more if you need all the above features.

Good For The Price

It's sharp, lightweight and the focus is fast and quiet. After a month of use, I have zero complaints.

Fuji native lenses are not cheap and there aren’t many options available. The biggest thing I wanted from my xt3 was better low light performance. I even contemplated going full frame but just couldn’t give up my beloved fuji! I got this lens for a trip to colorado and my god this lens blew my mind! At 1.4 this lens is sharp especially towards the center. The autofocus is unbelievably good and quiet! I’m a video guy and I appreciate the silent motor. At this price you cannot get a better lens. This is a MUST for every fuji owner. I was thinking about getting the fringer adapter plus sigma 18-35 canon mount for my fuji as a one and done but so glad I chose this for my low light bokeh and my 16-55 f2.8 fuji as my zoom for pro work.

Better Value

Although this 23 mm lens is longer and and heavier than its Fuji equivalent, it's a much better value. Thus far I've not noticed that it's any less sharp than Fujinon primes I own. Thanks to B & H staff in helping choose it.

It's a budget lens, know what you're buying

This lens is a great lens. For the price, it is amazing what Viltrox can put together. However, I have found sharpness to be quite uneven; it is great in the center, but there are certain scenarios which stretch it's limits in terms of sharpness of the side thirds of the frame. One particular scenario which stretched the limits of this lens was taking group photos. As an amateur wedding photographer, I found this lens struggles quite a bit across the aperture range (not just shooting wide open, obviously), leading people on the side thirds of the frame to be noticeably less sharp than in the center of the frame.

Wonderful lens all around

This is my first non-Fuji autofocus lens. I researched the crap out of various new 3rd party lenses before making this purchase, and was *still* pleasantly surprised by the image quality, low light performance and rendering. I love shooting at night and this lens does NOT disappoint. Both manual and back button focusing are a breeze, and the autofocus works quickly and quietly. The only negatives: A stepless aperture ring on a fly-by-wire lens is useless on a Fuji camera -- especially for video, as exposure changes aren't smooth.. ever. But that's Fuji's issue, not the Viltrox. The ring is stiff enough to avoid accidental changes most of the time.. but I would have preferred incremental half-stop clicks. The other negative is purely aesthetic -- the Viltrox doesn't look as cool/retro as Fuji cameras and some of their primes.. so in a way this lens looks *decades* newer than my X-T3! Also, when updating firmware, be sure and purchase a USB micro *data* cable. I have about 10 USB-micro cables around the house, but NONE worked because they're designed for device charging rather than data transfer. I almost returned the lens before I figured this out.

good but damaged

This lens arrived with a significant dent that runs from the 'c' logo onto the metal body. It seems to have be dropped or hit with something. I have not yet found any fault in it's operation.

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?

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.
