Viltrox 56mm f/1.7 Reviews – Another Sharp High Quality Reasonably Priced Lens


Viltrox 56mm f/1.7:  Amazon / B&H Photo

Viltrox has released a lot of great autofocus lenses for X mount that often outperform similarly positioned first-party Fujinon glass so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Viltrox 56mm f/1.7 continues that tradition. When it comes to sharpness the Viltrox 56mm f/1.7 is impressively sharp even wide open on a 40MP body and it only has some slight pincushion distortion and vignetting that is autocorrected in the camera or your editor. The lens does have one weak point though which is autofocus performance, but that could improve with future firmware updates.

  • Output Power Selection Dial
  • 5 Output Levels: 1/1 to 1/16

IT System Incident in Our Group
We regret to report an IT system incident affecting the functional IT systems of our headquarters and several of our business divisions which was discovered on March 30, 2024 (hereafter referred to as “the incident”).

We have been working diligently to address the incident and remediate our systems, and have engaged external specialist consultants to facilitate the restoration and integrity of our systems as quickly as possible. We have also made necessary reports and are consulting with relevant authorities. We expect these efforts to help minimize the adverse impact of the incident on our customers and our business.

1. Outline and Facts
In the morning of March 30, 2024, we discovered a discrepancy in system behavior at one of our overseas offices and confirmed that a system failure had occurred. We immediately responded by isolating the failed servers and reported the matter to the relevant authorities in the affected countries. We also engaged external forensic investigators who reported that
this incident was most likely caused by unauthorized access to our servers by a third party.

While the full effects, extent and nature of the incident continue to be investigated, the systems for some production plants and the ordering system for several products have been affected. The Company is making every effort to respond to customer demand and minimize the impact on our customers to the greatest extent possible. We are also investigating whether any confidential or personal information held by the Company has been compromised or accessed by third parties, but the full analysis is expected to take a considerable number of days.

We will fully comply with our internal policies and local regulations as needed depending on the results discovered. We will continue to investigate and analyze the impact of this incident in cooperation with outside experts and relevant authorities, and will take measures to restore the systems necessary for production and sales activities and to resume the supply system of products to customers as soon as possible.

2. Forecast
The impact of this matter on our business performance is not known at this time, but we will promptly disclose the impact of this matter on our business performance, if any, as soon as it arises.
