Cheap and Fast: A Review of the Viltrox AF 33mm f/1.4 Lens

A wide aperture 50mm (or equivalent) lens is a workhorse for lots of photographers in many genres, offering a versatile focal length and useful low-light and depth of field capabilities for a variety of applications. If you are looking for such a lens for your Fuji camera, this excellent video review takes a great look at the ultra-affordable Viltrox 33mm f/1.4 lens.

Coming to you from Christopher Frost Photography, this excellent video review takes a look at the Viltrox 33mm f/1.4 lens for Fujifilm. Viltrox is known for making quite affordable lenses, and the 33mm f/1.4 is no exception, offering a normal focal length and wide maximum aperture. The 33mm f/1.4 comes with an STM focusing motor, one ED glass element for decreased chromatic aberrations, one high refractive glass element, and nine rounded diaphragm blades for smoother bokeh. And at 9.5 oz (270 g), it is a fairly light lens, making it a great potential walkaround lens with a normal focal length and great low-light capabilities that won't add much bulk. 

The lens is also due to come out for Sony E mount and Canon EOS M cameras at some point in the future. Check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts.
