The FUJIFILM XF 56mm f/1.2 R Lens is a prime portrait-length lens that provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 85mm when used with FUJIFILM APS-C-sized mirrorless digital cameras. A bright f/1.2 maximum aperture greatly benefits selective focus control and also aids in shooting in low-light conditions. The internal focusing system, as well as the use of a stepping AF motor, ensures quiet, smooth, and precise focusing capabilities that are ideal for both still and video applications.

One double-sided aspherical element, two extra-low dispersion elements, and four front-facing convex elements are integrated into the optical design to reduce chromatic aberrations and to benefit overall image clarity and sharpness. An HT-EBC multi-layer coating helps to Minimize ghosting and lens flare for higher contrast and an additional coating has been applied to the rear side of the front-most lens element to further reduce ghosting that is common to lens designs with deep concave elements.

Prime short telephoto-length lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 85mm, making it ideal for portraiture and other applications where a slightly longer-than-normal perspective and flattening appearance is desired.
Bright f/1.2 maximum aperture is well-suited to low-light shooting and for controlling focus placement for shallow depth of field and selective focus applications.
Two extra-low dispersion elements, one double-sided aspherical element, and four elements with convex surfaces facing the front of the lens help to reduce chromatic and spherical aberrations and contribute to high overall image sharpness and clarity.
An HT-EBC multi-layer coating Minimizes lens flare and ghosting to deliver contrast-rich, color neutral imagery. An additional coating has been applied to the reverse side of the front lens element to further contribute to effective ghosting and flare reduction.
High-speed precision stepping autofocus motor is ideal for quickly and accurately acquiring focus and ideal for moving subjects and video applications.
An internal focusing mechanism maintains the overall lens length during focus for faster, more reliable performance.
Finely-tuned metal focus and aperture rings benefit overall handling and durability.
The seven-blade rounded diaphragm works to produce an aesthetic out-of-focus quality to benefit shallow depth of field imagery.
When used with an X-series camera that features a Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO) function, the lens' performance is enhanced to deliver consistent illumination and sharpness throughout the aperture range.

    XF 56mm f/1.2 R Lens is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 197.
    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.
