Viltrox AF 75mm F1.2 Review by Dustin Abbott
AF 75mm F1.2 XF has a built-in STM stepping motor with the latest algorithm and uses a new lens technology to suppress the breathing effect. It is equipped with a stepped aperture and feels jerky. It is equipped with a linear response manual focus ring with its own limit and smooth damping. Soft, it also has a focus mode switch (AF / MF) and a Type-C firmware upgrade interface.
Viltrox AF 75mm F1.2 XF adopts HOYA special glass material imported from Japan, adopts 11 groups of 16 optical structures, 4 high-refractive index lenses and 3 ED (low dispersion) lenses, which can effectively reduce the purple fringing that may appear at the edge of the image, to achieve dispersion correction comparable to APO level. In addition, the lens also adopts high-definition nano-multilayer coating technology, which can effectively reduce the glare and ghosting caused by incident light, and obtain clear and sharp images
