    Viltrox APS-C Auto Focus 23mm f1.4 for Z 50 & Z fc

    If you own a Nikon mirrorless APS-C body (Z 50 or Z fc), you know that, so far, Nikon has yet to release any prime lenses specifically for these bodies. Their latest lens map update finally includes a future 26mm but the "when" is not known. Meanwhile, there are several 3rd party manual focus APS-C Z mount lenses available.

    Recently, Viltrox has offered three prime auto focus APS-C Z mounts lenses - 23mm, 33mm & 56mm - all specified at f1.4. In 35mm equivalent terms, the lenses are essentially 35mm, 50mm and 85mm. After watching several YouTube reviews, I decided to try the 23mm version for my Z 50. The lens arrived yesterday afternoon so I haven't taken a lot of shots with it yet. It is all metal including the lens hood. It's not as small or light as the NIKKOR Z 16-50mm f3.5-6.3 kit lens but it is compact and feels comfortably balanced on the Z 50. As advertised, it has an manual aperture ring that can be used if desired.

    Here's the lens.

    Here is an image straight out of the camera with no post processing applied. So far I like what I've seen.

    Nikon, that's a hard pill to swallow with a horrible aftertaste.
    Nikon still has not refunded my money! They were finally nice enough to cancel the order, since they sold my lens to someone else after I paid for it and got a confirmation email. Do they think $1089 is theirs to keep? What a nightmare! Probably going to have to dispute the charge and have that money tied up for who knows how long. *sigh

    That SUCKS. I can't believe they'd do this! Good luck man, I hope you get it resolved quickly.

    Ya, I cant believe it either. After 2 emails today and a call that included climbing the ladder to talk to their boss, they finally refunded my money. They were literally trying to get me to wait another 7-10 business days before they could "release the funds".

    SMH

    Lesson learned.
