Viltrox 23mm f/1.4 AF Reviews

Great lens

By huailin
Rated 5 out of 5

I never had any prime lenses before, but I recently bought three prime lenses : Viltrox 23mm, Cannon 32mm and Sigma 56mm. The reason is that I really don't like the picture quality from the 15-45mm kit lens. I almost throw away my EOD M6 before I decided to try a prime lens. After I bought this 23mm prime lens and see the picture quality is far better than the zoom kit lens, I decided to add 30mm and 56mm to my bag. The image is very sharp. Auto focus is smooth and accurate. The feature I like the most is that you can manually control the aperture on the lens which Cannon and Sigma don't have. It is always nice to have a physical control

Needs latest firmware update to work with M50 markii

I first ordered this lens in the summer/fall of 2021. It would not work with my Canon M50 mark ii so I had to return it. I went back to B&H a couple of weeks ago to give it another shot, and was instructed by staff to go into the camera settings and Enable release shutter without lens. Got home and it STILL wouldn't work. I finally upgraded the lens to the latest firmware (from Viltrox website) and boom! works like a charm. This lens is an amazing lens for the price and build. The aperture ring is super handy and it delivers sharp images. I have been shooting with the canon 22 f.2 but the extra light and build quality make purchasing this lens worth it. The lens hood is an extra bonus, something that canon does not provide with any of their lenses (other than their L-series lenses). I rated this 4 stars because it does require having to navigate a difficult Chinese website to find the latest firmware in order for it to work on an m50 mark ii. I am glad that I went back for it.

Excellent for low light

Great 1.4 prime lens. It is solid and sharp. Extra features are the lens hood, big manual focus ring and ability to aperture Fstop on lens barrel. Not as compact as the Canon 22mm F2 but the 1.4 makes it worth it. Would be great if it had image stabilization
