Viltrox 20mm F1.8 ASPH Sony FE Image Gallery

Dustin Abbott

January 30th, 2019

If you were to go back even five years ago, it was easy to know the players in the photography industry.  As a Canon shooter at the time, the lenses essentially universally came from Canon, Sigma, Tamron, Zeiss, and relative newcomer Samyang/Rokinon.  There were a few fringe/cult following lenses from Voigtländer that most photographers had never heard of, but essentially there were five players, and the same true if you were a Nikon shooter (just substitute Nikkor for Canon).  It seems like the mirrorless revolution has really opened the door for new lens makers, however, and in the past two years in particular I’ve suddenly been reviewing lenses from lens makers I had never heard of previously like Laowa, Kamlan, Meike, Yongnuo, Zonlai, Irix, and now, Viltrox, with the Viltrox PFU RBMH 20mm F1.8 ASPH.  The Viltrox 20mm F1.8 is a brand new lens for Sony FE (full frame mirrorless), and I’ll be reviewing it on the demanding 42 MP sensor of the Sony A7rIII.  Can Viltrox manage to overcome the innate challenges of building a large aperture, wide angle lens for a full frame sensor?  Stay tuned to find out, and check out some of the photos below to see if you like what the lens can do.
