Re: Viltrox 85mm f1.8 STM - 6 month review

I agree, people still don't trust 3rd party vendors a lot. I keep hearing people referring to the safety of having a lens from the brand of their camera.

First, they are not always better built. There are 1000 dollars plastic lens from well known brands, body coating falling apart, etc...

We are lucky to have a few chinese companies making quality lenses, and Viltrox seems to be one of them. The upcoming APS-C trio seems to be going the same way in terms of price vs. quality, with the 33mm f1.4 at $275 starting to have good reviews.
