24 Feb A non-review review of the Viltrox 85mm 1.8 lens (on Fuji X-T2)

In my film days, I worked with 5×4 for product and architectural shots, 120 for fashion, portraits and landscape, 35 mm for everything else.

I mainly used Nikon and Leica starting with third party lenses updating to Nikon and Leica lenses as my photographs earned me more money.

I always felt that the third party lenses were good but not as good as the originals.

I bought Fuji’s first digital compact and gradually moved with developments to 3 Sony A900s which were my workhorses.

For some reason whilst I used all types of lenses on film and digital I always had a love of the 85 and 135 mm focal lengths.

The Zeiss ZA 135 1.8 lens was magnificent and I miss it to this day although not the weight or size.

In 2011 I bought what I think was the first Fuji x100 to be sold in the UK and I was hooked.

When I stopped working commercially I sold the Sonys and went totally Fuji.

X-E1, X-E2, X-Pro1, X-T1, X100, I loved the first series sensor and processing. I think first series were special but changed from XPro1 to 2 because of the diopter correction and viewfinder primarily, I then bought other models with the same sensor for processing workflow.

Lens list comprises 14mm, 23mm (X100F), 35mm, 56mm, 55-200mm. I did have 10-24mm and 100-400mm but they were seldom used so I sold them.

I was always attracted to the 90mm (135
