The Viltrox AF 13mm f/1.4 lens for Fuji X and Sony E mount is delayed

The new Viltrox AF 13mm f/1.4 lens for Fuji X and Sony E mount is delayed until 2022. Here is some additional information and pictures on the lens from FujiAddict:

  • Viltrox 13mm f/1.4 can be useful for vlogging
  • Well packed lens
  • Nice snap cap and lens hood
  • Solid mount with a USB-C firmware update port on the bottom
  • Nice manual focus ring and clicked aperture that sounds a little plastic
  • f/1.4 to f/16
  • 22cm minimum focus distance
  • 67mm filter thread
  • Little large but only 420g
  • Good mix of high-quality plastics and metal
  • A lot of people will want to compare this to the Samyang 12mm AF
  • This lens is a keeper and even though it is large it still feels good even when vlogging
  • Not sure if it would hold up to extreme weather, but it does hold up to abuse well
  • Very well made for the price point
  • AF is excellent and locks on quickly
  • This is close to STM focus throw quality for video
  • This lens is super sharp maybe even too sharp
  • This is Viltrox’s sharpest lens
  • Wide-open it is very usable unless you’re worried about the edges
  • Colors render well but a little cool maybe
  • Bokeh is ok in the foreground and background
  • Not a pixel peepers’ lens
  • There is noticeable vignetting wide open that cleans up quickly
  • Some distortion
  • The lens performs really well stopped down
  • The flaws of this lens are only really noticeable up close on the street
  • There is some chromatic aberration
  • None of this should stop you from buying this lens
  • If you’re clinical this lens is probably not for you, but it is a great lens for everyone else
  • The price will be about $429 USD but there is nothing that compares to this lens on the market
  • The Samyang 12mm f/2 AF is the closest lens to this one, but it Is a very different lens
  • Should be great for Astro
  • Release pushed back to 2022
