1. I had a terrible experience with purchasing. I couldn’t use my business credit card. For some reason, the website was denying it. I had to use PayPal witch make it hard for my business to track for tax purposes.
2. The shipping was ok. Not super fast, not slow, but the tracking didn’t work. FedEx just said label was created and I watched it every day. No updates. Until it was at my door delivered.
3 The lenses are OK as well as was the holiday sale price. I had these lenses before and sold them last year because the performance wasn’t up to par. I decided to give them another chance in the hope they have improved. They produce usable photos but the Chromatic Aberration and Purple fringing is still awful not improved at all in v 2 of the 23mm or the 56, neither has the minimum focusing distance. Please improve those 2 things and I will continue to buy from Viltrox. Oh and Make the 85mm smaller, please.
See the photo sample.
Very fast delivery.
Very nice lens , I gave it five star .
I've received a sample (V2) of 23mm 1.4 for Fuji last week. Communication and cooperation with Viltrox team was on a very professional, open and supportive level.
My findings after using the lens on my X-T20 so far:
+excellent sharpness straight from 1.4 up to ~F11
+good sharpness on the edges (1.4-2.2),very good up to F8-F11
+robust build quality, pleasant metal construction(hood included), barrels very nicely damped with precision, pro-feel operation
+nice, clean design
+neutral color rendering
+good to very good bokeh (depends on subject distance)
+very low flaring/ghosting with sun the frame
+fast, accurate and almost noiseless AF
+compact (both lens and filter size)
+- clickless aperture ring - depends on preference of the user. I personally find it quite fine, perhaps less resistance would come handy (for example in case you need to quickly change from F1.4 to F8)
+- bokeh rendering, as mentioned above, it strongly depends on subject distance, quite smooth in the centre, but you notice cat-eye shaped bokeh towards the edges (but some may find it attractive - I do)
+- purple fringing present near wide-open aperture, disappearing quickly after stopping down a little
+-vignetting - I find it actually quite useful when shooting wide-open
- low magnification figure
-sometimes overexposes photos(very seldom)
- aperture blades are not symmetrical when you stop down (f5,6 - f16)
- lens creates fairly abundant lateral chromatic aberrations at large diaphragm openings (more towards blue-ish tones)
I already had a 56 mm Viltrox and decided to buy a 23 mm too. The quality is the same: solid lense, nice looking, quite light.
Comparing the two, the 23 mm autofocus performs better and it's faster.
The f ring is very handy and despite it won't click in at every stop, unless you hold the lens with the finger exactly on the ring, it won't move.
I have a couple of Fuji lenses and considering the quality I get from Viltrox for half the price, I will keep buying Viltrox.
Very satisfied with it!
