Does the aperture ring have detents?
Asked by: Kenneth
There is a detent at f16. But the other markings do not have detents or clicks. There's a hard stop at f1.4, and another at the "A" position.

I read in other Page it woks on full frame. Is it true or works only on apsc?
Asked by: Gabriel
Yes, the Viltrox AF 23mm f/1.4 E Lens is designed to work with Sony APS-C mirrorless cameras. You can mount this lens to a Sony full-frame mirrorless camera as well, but the camera would need to be in APS-C mode. This would result in a lower resolution image with a 1.5x crop, which would defeat the benefits of using a full-frame camera.
