Viltrox released a lot of information about their new 85mm lens on weibo and an interesting comparison with the Fujinon 56mm f/1.2 and Sony 85mm f/1.8.  The Viltrox 85mm is a true full-frame 85mm lens the same design released for E-mount but with an X-Mount AF mount that is fully featured. They also released an announcement with some shipment issues that might cause shortages so grab one while you can.

Translated: “Heavy struck
The first Sony E-mount AF lens viltrox 85mmF1.8 stm E-mount was officially released on April 12th. The lens will be available for the first time with the majority of photographers, and can be tried on the spot.

Venue: Beijing Exhibition Hall

Due to the shortage of orders for the viltrox 85mmF1.8 stm X-mount autofocus lens, the existing production line capacity is tight, resulting in the delay of the 85mmF1.8 stm E-mount autofocus lens pre-sale date, which opened on May 1, 2019. Pre-sale, we apologize for the inconvenience caused to the majority of photographers. The new production line is being tightened, so stay tuned.”
