Portrait Photography with the Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 II

The Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 II is a fantastic portrait telephoto lens that is a great value. There's only a few others that compete in this range and that's the Fuji 90mm f/2 and Fuji 50-140mm f/2.8.

Viltrox recently released their own 75mm f1.2 PRO. That could also be a compelling option. It has the aperture ring that the 85mm is missing and a faster aperture. You do lose some reach but I don't think it makes much of a difference.

The 85mm is still a good option. I would highly consider this lens over the others if budget is a consideration. Its still the least expensive of all. The only real thing you lose is the aperture ring and if that doesn't bother you might as well put this on the top of your list.
