Viltrox 23mm f1.4 firmware PSA

I recently picked up the Viltrox 23mm f1.4 for use with my a6000. So far it has been a fun lens and a great value. BUT I was pretty disappointed by the very noticeable autofocus noise I was picking up when making videos (I use the shotgun hot shoe mic for family videos, etc).

However, I recently learned of the firmware updates on their website and installed the latest, which nearly eliminated the autofocus noise relevant to audio recording. There is still some detectable noise when the aperture changes, but this is much easier to work around and not as noticeable I think.

Anyway, for those picking up the Viltrox 23mm, be sure to update the firmware, it really makes a surprising difference...especially in quieting the autofocus noise.
