Viltrox Pro AF 27mm F1.2 Portrait Session (on X-H2)

Dustin Abbott

September 10th, 2023

Because I had relatively brief review period in which I was on the road nearly continually, I didn’t initially have a chance to do a portrait session with the incredibly new Viltrox Pro AF 27mm F1.2 STM. I definitely wanted to rectify that, as it was clear from my time with the lens that it should prove a great option for portrait work.  I put that to the test during a portrait session and collaboration with Craig from Let the Light In TV.  He shot behind the scenes footage and interviewed me about portrait work in general, while I shot a portrait session exclusively with the Viltrox Pro AF 27mm F1.2 on a Fujifilm X-H2 (40MP).  You can see Craig’s video by clicking this link.

The lens produced a lot of beautiful photos, and I break down my findings in the video below.

In short, the Viltrox Pro AF 27mm F1.2 proved to be a very effective portrait lens, delivering the rare combination of excellent sharpness along with soft bokeh.  It’s now my favorite “normal” portrait option on Fujifilm.  If you want my full thoughts on the Viltrox Pro AF 27mm F1.2, you can read my text review or watch my video review.  You can see some of the photos from the session down below.
