Some of the most popular lenses that Fujifilm has produced, are its f/2.0 primes. They offer great image quality in relatively tiny packages, while maintaining an affordable price point. Recently, a company called Viltrox has been competing in this affordable category and we decided to compare options from both companies.
In our latest video, we wanted to see how the Fujifilm 23mm f/2.0 lens compares against its less expensive alternative, the Viltrox 23mm f/1.4 lens. For many people, it may seem logical to compare the Viltrox lens to the Fuji 23mm f/1.4 lens; however considering the price points, we thought this would be an interesting comparison instead.
On the surface, it may seem rather obvious, that the less expensive option with the wider aperture is the better choice; although, there are still certain benefits that the Fuji lens offers. There are several scenarios where the Fujifilm still outperforms the Viltrox lens and these benefits may be enough for some of you to pick the slightly more expensive option.
Having said that, for many of you, the wider aperture may in fact be enough of a benefit to pick the lesser-known brand.
