A Review of the Impressive and Affordable Viltrox AF 75mm f/1.2 XF Lens

In the past couple of years, Viltrox has established themselves as a manufacturer capable of creating lenses at some of the most competitive prices on the market that often outperform their affordable costs. One of their newest offerings, the AF 75mm f/1.2 XF, offers Fujifilm X series users the enticing combination of an ultra-wide aperture, a portrait focal length, and an affordable price. This excellent video review takes a look at the lens and the performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice. 

Coming to you from pal2tech, this fantastic video review takes a look at the new Viltrox AF 75mm f/1.2 XF lens for Fujifilm X Series mirrorless cameras. At $549, the 75mm f/1.2 is remarkably well priced compared to similar portrait, though it still offers an impressive feature set and performance that help it to compete with those more expensive lenses, including impressive sharpness wide open (enough to keep up with the demanding 40-megapixel sensor in Fujifilm's new cameras), weather-sealing for working in poor conditions, good suppression of aberrations, and excellent bokeh. Altogether, the 75mm f/1.2 looks like one of the best values available right now. 

Check out the video above for the full rundown.
