Viltrox 23mm F1.4 is good, but the 23mm F2 WR & 23mm F1.4 XF are being somewhat better. Viltrox does have some CAs at different apertures, therefore too much for my taste, and is much bigger than the 23/F2 XF. And of course, the cheaper Lens. Bokeh is a bit busy, open aperture heavy vignetting, and a bit distortion in straight lines, for architecture photography. Considering the price, its fair – good enough.
When it was being announced, i really wanted it, but when i’ve read the 1st Reviews, i see it as a ok to good Lens. But it’s great, that Viltrox still does support it via Firmware Updates.
Review on the 24 MP X-T30 via Photozone:
“So all-in-all, the Viltrox lens may not be perfect but if you can live with its limitations, you can get a lot of bang for your bucks here.”
YT Review from Christopher Frost:
If only, it would being with WR, and something less CAs. Peace.
