TIPA WORLD AWARDS 2024

BEST APS-C STANDARD LENS

Viltrox ProLine AF 27mm f/1.2

If many photographers were asked if they only had one focal length and maximum aperture to use as a walkabout lens, many would choose specs that match what’s on offer from this all-metal offering from Viltrox. Ideal for street photography, candids, and travel, and available in mounts that fit APS-C FUJIFILM, Nikon, or Sony cameras, the all-metal body with metal electronic contacts, which insure Exif data transmission to the image file, can be used in either auto or manual focus mode. A newly designed STM stepping motor affords fast AF and smooth video capture, while its 11-bladed diaphragm, close focusing distance of 11 inches (27.9cm) and maximum aperture of f/1.2 means amazing bokeh effects can be created with ease. The lens also supports the numerous automatic focusing modes available with contemporary APS-C cameras today.
