RW: Viltrox Interview – Several New Lenses Revealed, Lab Series Lenses, and More

Richard Wong went to Viltrox’s headquarters for a tour and an interview. During the interview, quite a few lenses were preannounced and Viltrox announced a new series of lenses above the Pro series the Lab series. Below are the key points from the interview:

  • Viltrox plans to release zoom lenses but has nothing to announce now
  • Viltrox will have Cine zooms like a 22-200mm 10x cine zoom that is manual focus
  • They will also make a 30-300mm 10x cine zoom with manual focus
  • Finally a manual focus 42-420mm 10x cine zoom
  • So there are three very expensive larger 10x cine zoom lenses by the end of the year
  • The three lenses are designed for different sensor sizes, but they are big serious lenses
  • The development of one lens takes 1-2 years, but most new lenses take one year
  • Viltrox doesn’t have any plans to make camera bodies
  • Viltrox is planning a small pancake-style lens that is 20mm f/4.5 that will cover full frame and autofocus for an affordable price of around $150 that will out perform the original trio of APS-C lenses
  • Viltrox will focus on AF lenses going forward and making their lenses smaller
  • Stay tuned about L mount lenses but nothing to announce now
  • Viltrox will announce a 135mm f/1.8 AF lenses that will cover full frame and be considered a lab series which will be above the pro line of lenses
  • LAB Series > PRO
  • Viltrox plans to release 24mm, 35mm, and 50mm f/1.4 lenses that are AF and cover full frame under the LAB Series badge
