Payment & Security
The 27mm 1.2 is just so versatile and sharp. Fullframe pop on a aps-c body. Good colour crisp rendering and smooth bokeh. Shots two event jobs with it and loved the results. Really a pro lens and big bang for your buck. Only minus was delivery by Chronopost (France). Unclear delivery moment, delivered at neighbours while i was home and no note or message where it was. Got lucky that i found which neighbour had my lens.
The first day I attached this to my Fuji X-T5 I took some pictures of my sofa in backlight. I focused on a pillow that was nearest to me. The result was a sharp detailed image with a really nice 3D feel, with the pillow in focus at f/1.2. The pillow stood out from the background in a very pleasing way. This is a very very nice lens. It's a bit heavy, however I'm 72 and I have no issues with carrying this lens/camera combination. The only disappointments are 1. I dropped the lens hood from a height of 1 meter and one of the thin plastic bars that enable the hood to lock split. So the hood is mostly not functional and does not lock. 2. The focus ring is a bit too loose for my liking but it isn't a major problem.
The aperture ring is quiet and has enough resistance so it doesn't tend to move accidentally. Overall a very favorable lens. Just wish the hood wasn't so delicate.
I heard some good reviews about the Viltrox 27mm f1.2, so I was excited to get it. When it came and I had a chance to try it on my XT5 I had surprised. I didn't expect the sharpness that the 27mm was producing. I thought it would be a close competitor to the Fuji 27mm, but I'm terms of optics I would put it closer to the 33mm f1.2
4 or the Fuji 50mm F1.0. At about half the price of these two, you can have the Viltrox 27mm f1.2. There is ever so little vignetting at 1.2, but it's gone by 1.4 . The build quality is amazing, it's a beefy lens best suited fir the XT5 or the XH2. It may be too front heavy for a Fuji XPRO body. All in all, its an excellent lens at a great price that rivals Fuji's top primes. I see this becoming my daily driver for my street photography. Looking forward to testing the 75mm from Viltrox.
Incredible sharpness, even in low light. Bokeh transitions are smooth and soft and the lens renders colors like native Fuji glass. AF is snappy and eye AF works very well with my xt5. My only wish for future pro line lenses is the addition of a de-click switch for the aperture ring.
Can be used for all kinds off photoassignments. Sharp at all departures. Built like a tank. Must have Fuji lens.
