Re: Viltrox 23mm 1.4 - About optical limits review (not just reading the final rating)

I stopped reading their all-over-the-place 'reviews' long ago, I've seen them give some excellent lenses [in mine and many other's experience] 2.5 - 3 stars and some really so-so lenses 3.5+ Consistency is certainly not their strong point.

The only reason I wouldn't buy the Viltrox pair 23/33 is because the close focus capabilities are poor. Otherwise, other reviewers have shown that for example the 33mm 1.4 is sharper at ever aperture up to 5.6 than the Fuji 35 1.4, it is also silent and much quicker to focus. It's got everything [bar WR, which is insignificant to me tbh] else covered inc a very attractive price.
