Photographer Stephan Wiesner took a close look at our lens on his YouTube channel and compared it directly with the Sony GMaster put through its paces. How good is that Viltrox lens against which the lens is much more expensive and what surprising findings he made, you can find out in the video.
First to the haptic properties: The lens is complete except for the lens hood made of metal. Next to the clickless adjustable aperture ring there are no buttons on the lens. The dimensions of 7 x 8.5 cm, the filter thread diameter of 55 mm and the weight of 340 grams make it one handy, practical 24 mm lens.
With the new revised auto focus as well as the Face and eye recognition the Viltrox lens scores with its fast response times.
As already mentioned, this can be done Viltrox lens AF 24mm F/1.8 FE use versatile. Stephan Wiesner recommends it for example Film and video blogs. But also for Landscape, travel or documentary photography the 24 mm lens is ideally suited. This convinces in another aspect Viltrox lens with technical sophistication and repeatedly outperforms the Sony FE 24mm full-frame lens from GMaster. Stephan Wiesner shows in his video how clean the lens of the so-called „focus breathing effectt compensates or this almost does not have.

Wiesner: A very, very hot recommendation for filmmakers, so if we didn't already have the GMaster (), then tell me what I should pay 1000 euros more for. Our er Viltrox lens AF 24mm F/1.8 FE could Wiesner from the autofocus, the versatile application possibilities and the attractive price-performance ratio convince. And we too are convinced that the new 24mm lens of the ideal companion is.
