Viltrox AF 13mm f/1.4 Overview

By B&H Photo's

Ideal for landscapes, cityscapes, street scenes, architecture, and more, the Viltrox AF 13mm f/1.4 XF is a sleek ultra-wide prime lens characterized by its portability, advanced optical design, and intuitive handling. Its fast f/1.4 maximum aperture balances size and speed and is suitable for working in available lighting conditions. It offers greater control over depth of field and provides a soft bokeh effect at wider apertures while also limiting the overall size and weight of the lens for everyday use. Designed for smooth video capture, the lens effectively eliminates focus breathing when changing focusing distances while shooting video, and an STM autofocus motor provides fast and responsive AF down to a minimum object distance of just 8.7".

Optical Design
  • Ultra-wide prime lens designed for APS-C-format FUJIFILM X-mount mirrorless cameras where it provides a 20mm equivalent to full-frame 35mm focal length.
  • Bright f/1.4 maximum aperture suits working in difficult lighting conditions and helps to maintain a relatively compact form factor.
  • 14 lens elements in 11 groups provide a sophisticated optical design. Two aspherical lens elements are optimized for distortion and off-axis optical aberration allowing the lens to maintain excellent resolution throughout the entire focusing range.
  • Four ED (extra-low dispersion) lens elements greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations to produce greater clarity and color accuracy no matter which aperture you choose.
  • Designed for smooth video capture, the lens effectively eliminates focus breathing when changing focusing distances while shooting video.
  • STM autofocus motor provides fast and responsive AF down to a minimum object distance of just 8.7".
  • Nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Great Image Quality

This is a great lens, especially when you factor in the price. The image quality if fantastic. The lens comes with a mental lens hood, Fujifilm should take note from Viltrox.

Very good lens for Nikon Z DX

By Daniel

A very good lens for Nikon Z DX cameras, Z50, Z fc, & Z30. The price is a bargain, the lens build quality is high, the images are excellent. This has pride of place on my Z fc as my fun and personal camera. Very handy when shooting indoors for events, as a lot of people can be in the image, as wide as it is, and the f/1.4 aperture works well with interior lighting. It also is quite handy for small town evening events. The images produced are brighter than my eyes, and I can shoot with available light well into the evening. This lens completes the set from Viltrox for the Nikon Z DX APS-C cameras, all f/1.4: 13mm, 23mm, 33mm and 56mm. I couldn't be happier with the Viltrox line. I'm waiting to see what else they will produce for my Nikon Z DX camera clan. I write for

So far so good! Used it for the auroras and it was perfect. Very bright and sharp lens. A little heavier than I'd hoped but outstanding quality

Excellent wide angle lens!

Perfect companion to 23mm F1.4 WR and 50mm F1.0 for weddings! Sharp, fast and reliable AF, solid, cheap, what else do you want? :-)

Just what I needed

We travel and one of the things I sometimes like to shoot is architecture and interiors using available light. The outside shots are easy but it can get pretty dim inside a village church. I was considering the Nikkor Z 20mm f1.8 but decided that this would work as well for occasional use. I don't have a village church to hand but thought my local library would be a decent standin.

A WOW lens; better than I expected

Haven't shot it a lot, but what I have has confirmed that it's a keeper.. Plenty high rez at middle F-stops, and excellent center and middles even at F4, all on my X-T4.. Here's hoping it'll look just as good with 40MP.

Affordable Lens

I'm actually considering selling my XF 10-24 R WR since shooting with this Viltrox the last few months. Unless I really need 10mm, I always opt for the Viltrox due to better image quality and f1.4 Excellent build quality, fast AF, f1.4 and excellent optics at a very reasonable price. Only thing I could possible find fault with is it's kinda hefty for an APS-C prime. But well wort it!

Asked by: Anonymous
You may use the Viltrox AF 13mm f/1.4 XF Lens for Nikon Z on the Nikon Z7 II. However, the image will crop and there will be a loss of resolution due to the lens being optimized for the smaller DX type sensors.
