Viltrox Unveils PFU RBMH 85mm f/1.8 STM Lens for Sony E Mount

Viltrox has announced its newest lens model for Sony E Mount cameras. The PFU RBMH 85mm f/1.8 STM is now available for pre-order via B&H Photo-Video for an MSRP of $379. Shipments are expected to launch by May 6.

Geared toward portrait photography, the PFU RBMH 85mm f/1.8 STM is a shot-telephoto lens with a bright maximum aperture ideal for low-lighting and shallow depth of field effects. The unit's optical design features 10 elements in 7 groups with one extra-low dispersion element and four elements made from highly transparent glass, helping to minimize chromatic and spherical aberrations. In addition, the lens uses an HD Nano multi-layer coating to reduce flare and ghosting and provide water-resistance. Meanwhile, quiet auto-focus performance is enabled via the device's STM motor and the lens offers a minimum focusing distance of 2.6'.
