The Viltrox 85mm f/1.8 outperformed expectations in Optical Limits’ testing. A lot of good things have been said about the Viltrox 85mm f/1.8, but now we have the numbers to back up the hype. Even Optical Limits sounds convinced in their conclusion:

Medium format really took off for Fujifilm in 2019 with the GFX100 and GFX50R, but many are waiting for a X100 style GFX camera at a reasonable price point (Maybe 3-4k). In the meantime, the Fujifilm GA645 has seen a resurgence with prices doubling year over year as film continues its comeback with some photographers. I could even be interesting to rotate the GFX 44x33mm sensor on its side to make it like a GA645 in its standard orientation being portrait.
Fujifilm is now offering a 4-year warranty for Swiss Fujifilm camera owners via their Fujifilm Connect website for CHF 179.00 per year if you have more than CHF 750.00 in equipment. It will be interesting to see if these kinds of services get extended to other countries. Fujifilm seems to be transitioning to a longer ownership support model, which should be appreciated along with their dedication to doing in house repairs.
