Photographer Stephan Wiesner tests the new Viltrox lenses

At Rollei we have in cooperation with viltrox just fresh  new lenses brought to the market, which are already very well received by our customers. And not only there, but also with them photographers are they popular

For example at  Professional photographer Stefan Wiesner , who is dedicated to lenses on his YouTube channel. Among other things, he puts this there Viltrox FE-85mm f/ 1.8 Mk2  compared to the comparable Sony lens and explains in the video, for example, that it not only feels very high-quality, but also has a wide focus ring.

Photo situations with harsh shadows

In his evaluation, he also gives a video example of a photo situation with relative hard shadow . Among other things, he uses two Rollei freeze flashes, astriplight and a bigger onesoft box . He uses both flashes because he theoretically wants to lighten the face and back of the model's head to be photographed.

The first example he gives is a so-called cinematic headshot , so called because the resulting image looks like something out of a movie. The person should shine, be bright and friendly and also stand out, but not stand in the shadows or be dark..

Handling identically convinced by Viltroxx

Wiesner's assessment: TheViltrox lenses and Sony are identical in handling from his point of view. He works a lotopen aperture and afterwards provides the resultsboth lenses side by side.

Above all, he is convinced of the  Sharpness of the Viltrox lens compared to the Sony lens. Also at bokeh he's more taken with the Viltrox lens, as he explains, which is an important point for the photographer. Because a 85mm lens he buys, as he says, above all because of the bokeh it creates.

In his test, he photographed, among other things, a motif with flowers and also a test chart, which he also photographed with both lenses. Here, too, he is very convinced of the Viltrox lens .

You can see the entire review and what Stephan Wiesner says in his conclusion about the lens in the video.

Das VILTROX 85 Uhr ist sehr gut. Ich habe es und das 24mm Schwestermodell für Nikon Z.
Beide sind ähnlich schnell beim AF.
Lediglich die Handnachführung des AF ist in der elektrischen Übersetzung etwas hakelige und weniger präzise wie das Original.
