Viltrox 85mm F1.8 Z-mount Lens is a full-frame autofocus wide lens designed for Nikon Z-mount Mirrorless camera models including Nikon Z5, Z50, Z6, Z6II, Z7, Z7II. Its relatively light weight, fast speed and wide aperture also makes it a superb event lens. So it's definitely good for capturing beautiful portraits, close-up, landscape and street photography, etc.

So far an excellent choice. The mount attached vert smoothly. The hood is a little awkward putting on. Haven’t used it a lot as of yet but the images I’ve shot are stunning. A little slow getting it delivered but no bid deal...
I've purchased this lens more for curiosity than needs and I have to say, I'm impressed! Comparable to the native Nikon lens, without the hefty price tag.
The lens is nice and solid, metal not plastic, very clear glass and has a perfect balance to my Nikon Z6 and Z6ii camera.
The image quality is very good with a nice smooth bokeh for portraits
There are two downsides on this lens. the first is the hood on this lens, it fits poorly! or do I have a bad version? second the auto focus is slow, hopefully this can be improved with a firmware update?
All in all still a very nice lens to have in my bag, i will certainly consider Viltrox in the future for other lenses
First shoots with the Viltrox85mm are great.
Was pleasantly surprised at the construction and weight of this lens compared to the naitive Nikon glass. This Viltrox variant seems at first look better build quality judging just by weight comparison to the Nikkor. There is some compromise that needs to be stated up front with respect to weather proofing that is not present like in the native glass and some minor chromatic adorations in photos that is minimal. But the price for a 3rd party Z Mount is acceptable for me to be cautious with weather shooting and deal with some minor quality discrepancies compared to native. Maybe in future firmware updates this can be addressed since there is a USB port for updates from Viltrox when available.
The lens is very good, with a great image quality. Packaging was excellent too. But I cannot give it 5 stars because the lens hood is very bad. It is very poorly built and does not fit the lens well. I think they should look at these things. Or is it that I got a faulty lens hood ?
