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

Viltrox has established themselves as a manufacturer of lenses priced at extremely competitive levels, and despite those low costs, many of their options keep pace with much more expensive offerings. Their latest lens, the AF 75mm f/1.2 XF, offers Fujifilm shooters a nice portrait focal length paired with an extremely wide maximum aperture, all at a very affordable price. This excellent video review takes a look at the lens and the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice. 

Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this great video review takes a look at the new Viltrox AF 75mm f/1.2 XF lens for Fujifilm X Series mirrorless cameras. At just $549, the 75mm f/1.2 is very competitively priced, but it offers performance well beyond what one might expect for that cost. With features like weather-sealing, solid build quality, great sharpness even at wide apertures, a lack of noticeable aberrations, and beautiful bokeh, the 75mm f/1.2 looks like the ideal portrait lens for a variety of users, even those who using cameras like the new X-T5 and X-H2, which both feature demanding 40-megapixel high-resolution sensors. Check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts on the lens.

regarding image quality, I honestly think this must be a stellar lens.

But if the AF performs like that on still objects it must be a pain for any work with people outside a still environment like a studio. pitty. expected more from Viltrox after the much better AF of 23mm and 33mm
