Fujinon XF56mm F1.2 R First thoughts

We just got the Fuji XF56mm f/1.2 in! It gives an equivalent 85mm focal length, and it’s great for portraits (or any situation you want very shallow depth of field).

I’ll be shooting with the lens more over the next couple weeks and sharing some of the results.

My first impressions of the lens is that color and sharpness are quite good. The autofocus is louder and a bit slower than our other Fuji lenses (which are all XF WR).

All photos in this post were shot at f/1.2

The out of focus areas (bokeh) look beautiful and the rendering from in focus to out of focus feels quite natural:

For the $1000 price tag the Fuji XF 56mm f/1.2 is definitely more of a specialty lens, but the results speak for themselves.

You can get it from Amazon here or B&H Photo here.
