FUJIFILM XF 56mm f/1.2 R Overview

  • 1Description

Perfect for portraiture, the XF 56mm f/1.2 R from FUJIFILM is an 85mm-equivalent prime distinguished by its exceedingly fast f/1.2 maximum aperture for isolating subjects and working in low-light conditions. The optical design employs both aspherical and extra-low dispersion elements, which help to reduce a variety of aberrations, color fringing, and distortion in order to achieve high sharpness and clarity. A Super EBC coating is used, too, to reduce flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy in bright and backlit conditions. Additionally, this lens also features an internal focusing mechanism for quick focusing performance along with a rounded seven-blade diaphragm to produce a pleasing bokeh quality.

Prime portrait-length lens is designed for APS-C-format Fujifilm X-mount mirrorless cameras and provides an 85mm equivalent focal length.
Especially bright f/1.2 maximum aperture excels in low-light conditions and also offers notable control over depth of field for using selective focus techniques.
One double-sided aspherical element limits distortion and spherical aberration in order to realize greater sharpness and accurate rendering.
Two extra-low dispersion elements reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to provide greater clarity and color accuracy.
Super EBC coating has been applied to individual elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
Internal focusing design affords fast and quiet autofocus performance that benefits both stills and video applications.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality to benefit the use of selective focus and shallow depth of field techniques.

    FUJIFILM XF 56mm f/1.2 R Reviews

    XF 56mm f/1.2 R Lens is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 211.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2 R vs. 50mm f/2 vs. Canon 85mm f/1.8 Hobbyist bokeh evaluation: Executive Summary:? The 56mm tied the Canon 85mm and exceeded the XF 50mm in terms of bokeh. I shot about 45 hand-held photos of? Christmas decoration from about 8 feet with a background that was 2-3 times that difference.? I really like the 50mm f/2, but it is not a bokeh-meister.? The 56mm f/1.2 vs. Canon 85mm f/1.8 (Canon 5D3) shootout was a draw.? So, I'm quite pleased.? I really like the 5D3+85mm combo, but I no longer need to use it, particularly when travelling.? ?Sorry that I didn't have the 56mm in October, 2017, when I shot a number of photos in which bokeh was desired.? Hence, the purchase of the 56mm f/1.2.? Recommendation:? buy it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharper than my Canon L lenses. This is one of the sharpest lenses I have ever shot with with the exception of some very specialized lenses. I have a ton of flagship Canon L glass and this is equal to or exceeds the image quality produced with those lenses. Colour is great, bokeh is absolutely outstanding, especially for ASP-C sensors, vignetting is minimal to nonexistent, and little to no barrel distortion or any other flaws I can think of. It focuses faster than many of my other Fuji lenses and when it locks on focus, it's accurate. All in all, a very wise investment. Just another reason I've been moving away from Canon's $7,000 flagship cameras and using the Fuji X-Pro1 (and soon to be X-Pro2) exclusively.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best portrait lens for Fuji systems The Fuji XF 56mm f/1.2 was the most anticipated (and longest wait listed item) that I've seen in a while. I couldn't wait to get my hands on it, and boy is it worth the wait. I recently ditched my Canon DSLR system for the smaller, Fuji systems. I mostly shoot portraits and commercial work, so the Fuji systems are perfect for me in terms of size, weight, image quality, and a few other things. The XF 56mm lens is an absolutely stunning lens for portraiture. The images are tack sharp edge to edge, even wide open, it grabs AF quickly, and produces absolutely beautiful image quality and skin tones.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning I was hesitating about the idea of purchasing the 56mm f1.2 since I already had the 90mm f/2 and many reviews indicating that they were both portrait lenses and having one there was no need for the other. Finally, I traded one of my lenses with this jewel. Performance and IQ are simply stunning, and yes, focusing is a bit slow but in the X-T2 isn't that bad. However, the images produced by this lens are great, micro-contrast is better on the 90mm f/2, but definition and sharpness from wide open (f/1.2) is very good. No regrets about my decision. Now, my only problem is how to share time between these two lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Among the best portrait 85mm prime lens I had a chance to use a heavy FF Canon 85mm f/1.2 II before and this one is right there although the bokeh is not as good as Canon one due to the DOF. If you're portrait Fuji shooter, it is a MUST lens to own, period. Sharp like hell even at f/1.2, fast enough focus in normal light (note that Im using X-E2), color and contrast are beautiful. The only issue I have with this lens is the limitation of 1/4000s on X-E2 which in bright sunlight, I have to stop down to f/2.8 or more to avoid overexposure. I am still learning it but the result looks good so far, see my pictures. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This is the second lens I've bought for my x-t10 and it's great. I previously bought the 35 f2 which is also great, but I wanted something with more reach that would be my main portrait lens. I considered getting the 90 f2 and everything I read about that lens sounded awesome, but I wanted something more compact than the huge 90. When mounted on the x-t10 it feels good in my hand. I do have the extra hand grip attached to the camera but when it's all paired together the camera and lens feel comfortable. Image quality is everything I was hoping for. Pictures are crystal clear and the colors pop. And the bokeh is stunning. I was already in love with the Fuji X system, but this just magnified everything.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I switched from Canon I use this lens for portraits mostly. I also had the opportunity to shoot a concert and I found it extremely useful in the low light. This is by far my favorite lens I own. I recently switched to Fuji after shooting the X Pro-1. It was so much fun to shoot and the image quality was exceptional. After owning the Canon 5d Mark iii, my Fuji cameras have just as great an image quality and the glass is no exception. The 56mm is equal to the 85mm on a full frame. I really loved the cost. Compared to the Canon 85mm f/1.2, I purchased this lens at half the price and equal the quality. This lens is not a fast focusing lens, compared to the 18-55 f/2.8-4, but that is expected. It still focused fast enough and accurate enough to catch some wonderful low light shots. I would recommend this lens to anyone.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from excellent lens, would appreciate faster af i use this lens for: - concert photography where a fast lens is necessary - portraits for the lens length and background separation image quality is great though auto focus is not lightning fast and suffers (expectedly) in low light situations. that being said, the fast aperture lets me get shots that i wouldn't able to otherwise capture in those same scenarios so i don't knock the lens hard for this slight shortcoming. portraits have been where this lens excels for me, no qualms and a wholehearted recommendation for that application.

    question

    It doesn't have OIS isn't that a problem for blur
    Asked by: Anonymous
    While the Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2 R lens does not have OIS, it has a very fast aperture of f/1.2 that will help significantly in low light situations. The use of a tripod will also aid in preventing blur, such as the Oben AC-1321: http://bhpho.to/1lIw70I

    I know this lens is very popular with ...

    I know this lens is very popular with photographers, but I shoot strictly video on the XT-3. Can anyone share any actual experience shooting video with this lens? I do your classic talking head corporate interview or teleprompter shoots, so the subject is usually sitting, does not move a lot but can lean in or back a little, sometimes is standing on a marker. I've been getting by with the 18-55. I'm torn between this lens and the 50mm. Any insight appreciated.
    Asked by: David
    This lens works well in low light conditions and is at the top in terms of sharpness. If you are using artificial light on your subject, then very likely you do not need f1.2. Remember you are shooting with a reduced sensor size and not full frame 35mm. This lens therefore behaves like a much longer focal length, such as approximately 85mm. Actual specs on that are described by Fuji or your professional retailer.

    Is this the best macro lens for the Fuji X-T1?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    No. The 60mm is the only macro lens, but I'd like to try macro with the new 90mm f2 lens.

    question

    I already own the Fujifilm 60mm F2.4 macro lens. Is this lens significantly different or better (aside from the larger aperture) to warrant the cost and having another lens to carry?
    Asked by: Terry O.
    Yes! Most definitely different in terms of possible depth of field, but I'd say get it if you're going to shoot portraits. The f/1.2 is absolutely creamy.

    question

    Is this Lens cover full frame camera if I mounted on Sony A7 ?
    Asked by: steven t.
    I own a Fuji X-Pro1, and this is my favorite lens. Unfortunately, it is designed specifically to be used with cameras that have a smaller, APS-C size sensor, so it would NOT cover the sensor of a full frame camera.
