Viltrox launches super-fast 75mm f/1.2 lens for just $549 – but you can't buy it yet

Viltrox has just made a very exciting announcement for anyone in the market for an affordable super-fast, portrait lens for Fujifilm X-mount cameras. While the Fujifilm XF80mm f/2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro is a fantastic lens delivering super-sharp, detailed images – even up close – it’s not cheap and it’s pretty chunky.

For those looking for a cheaper alternative, if you’re not brand-loyal; the Viltrox 75mm f/1.2 PRO AF XF is a very tempting alternative if you own the high-resolution Fujifim X-H2S or the ultimate hybrid camera, the Fujifilm X-T5. Since it was established in 2009, Viltrox has put out some pretty impressive products, especially for the price, and this latest 75mm f/1.2 lens is no different.
