Viltrox has announced an 85mm f/1.8 AF Lens for Canon RF mount. This is the same lens that is already available in Sony E, Nokon Z, and Fujifilm X mounts.
The Viltrox AF 85mm f/1.8 RF is a portrait-length fixed lens designed for Full-frame Canon RF-mount mirrorless cameras. The lens is small and compact and it measures under 10cm in length and it weighs 530g / 18.69 oz.
The optical design comprises one extra-low dispersion element and four elements made from short wavelength, highly transparent glass, which is claimed to help to reduce chromatic aberration.
The lens features an STM motor that Viltrox claims can provide quick, quiet autofocus performance. The lens has a minimum focusing distance of 80cm / 2.6′. Electronic contacts convey Exif data as well as permit camera-based aperture selection. Additionally, an integrated USB port permits updating of the lens’s firmware.

The lens is now available to pre-order for $399 USD.
