Our take on the Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2 R X-Mount Lens

by Dave Bar
Fujifilm

A portrait lens that practically sees in the dark

With its extra-wide maximum aperture and classic 85mm equivalent focal length, this XF series Fujifilm lens is a natural for shooting brilliant portraits and recording richly detailed, high-resolution images in very low-light. That same large aperture also gives you amazing control over depth of field (the slice of space in your camera's view that's actually in focus) for tight close-ups that let you see a focus difference between an eyelash and an earlobe. Shooting wide-open at f/1.2, the in-focus parts of your portraits will be exquisitely sharp while your backgrounds will melt away to put your subjects into a world of their own.

Superior construction and optical quality

Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lens elements and a double-sided aspherical glass element give you razor-sharp images with excellent color fidelity. And this XF lens' premium metal construction — including finely machined rings milled from a solid metal block —  provides a luxurious feel, smooth operation and consistent, high-quality performance.

XF56mm 1.2

Written By Spinningfox, New York, NY on Monday, March 10, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
The best XF lens so far, extremely sharp and no distortion wide open. Bokeh is creamy and control is solid.
Pros:
Sharp, good looking.
Cons:
Auto focus is still a bit noisy.
