Fuji 35mm f/1.4 vs Viltrox 33mm f/1.4: $600 vs $280
Fuji 23mm f/1.4 vs Viltrox 23mm f/1.3: $900 vs $330
Of course, it's not so simple but it tells a story.
My statement that the JP manufacturers should get nervous is more about the maturity of the Viltrox offerings. These aren't comparable yet but these aren't the same cheap Chinese lenses anymore than we were mocking about a couple of years ago.
That's good news for us, competition will drive prices down and the Chinese products getting better might even become serious competitors in quality side if they go the Sigma way
