New Viltrox PFU RBMH Lenses for Sony FE and Fuji X Mount

Viltrox may be familiar to you as a brand maker of affordable lens adapters and LED lights, but they have some exciting new lenses for Sony FE and Fuji X mount. I remember checking out their new 85mm E mount lens at Photokina 2018 where they had a few prototype lenses on display on their booth and now the lenses are making an appearance and are available to order from authorised dealers such as B&H in North America.

Their new lenses for Sony E mount are the  ultra-wide prime PFU RBMH 20mm f/1.8 ASPH, and two versions of their 85mm prime – the Viltrox PFU RBMH 85mm f/1.8 STM Lens, which supports autofocus, and the manual focus only Viltrox PFU RBMH 85mm f/1.8. The 85mm STM lens with AF is also made for the Fuji X mount for Fujifilm APS-C mirrorless cameras.

All lenses are priced affordably starting from $299 for the manual focus version going up to $486 for the ultra-wide 20mm 1.8 for Sony FE. The Sony mount lenses cover full frame and have a fast maximum aperture opening of f/1.8.

The optical design encompasses an extra-low dispersion element, along with four elements made from highly transparent glass, that aids in reducing chromatic aberrations. The lenses have an HD Nano multi-layer coating has also been applied to suppress flare and ghosting for improved contrast when working in strong lighting conditions. Additionally, the 85m STM AF lens features an STM motor for quick and quiet autofocus performance.
