Re: Viltrox 23mm f1.4 at f2.8

Quick update - still getting great shots from this lens; when it hits focus (i.e. subject doesn't move too unexpectedly) it is really sharp with granular details.

However, last night I suddenly could not change the aperture. Neither by adjusting the physical ring on the lens, nor by turning that ring to the "A"  position and then adjusting aperture via the camera. Turning camera on/off did not help. I had to take the lens off and put it back on to regain functionality; now works fine.

The only thing I did prior to it not working was put the a6400 into silent shutter mode. I'm not sure why that would have affected it.

A bit worrisome to have an inexplicable issue like this in the first few days of using.

Has anyone else had this issue?
