Viltrox is about to launch its 75mm f/1.2 AF in both Sony E and Nikon Z mounts. The lens, which is designed for mirrorless cameras with APS-C sensors, is already on sale in Fujifilm X mount.

The lens has an unusual focal length - translating to an effective 112mm in full-frame terms, so slightly longer than usual for a portrait lens. But its wide f/1.2 maximum aperture becomes therefore that more impressive - and particularly so when the $549 price is taken into account.
