FUJIFILM XF 56mm f/1.2 R APD Overview

By B&H Photo's

Complementing the lens itself, the FUJIFILM XF 56mm f/1.2 R APD Lens with UV Filter Kit from B&H bundles the portrait-length prime with a pro 62mm UV filter.

FUJIFILM XF 56mm f/1.2 R APD Lens

Designed for the bokeh enthusiast, the FUJIFILM XF 56mm f/1.2 R APD features a unique optical design, flattering portrait-length field of view, and an especially fast f/1.2 maximum aperture. Differentiating itself from FUJIFILM's other XF 56mm f/1.2 lens, this APD version incorporates an apodization filter to produce an aesthetically-pleasing out-of-focus quality to suit selective focus applications.

Complementing the unique bokeh-related attributes of the lens is an equally sophisticated optical design, which features both aspherical and extra-low dispersion elements to help reduce a variety of aberrations, color fringing, and distortion. 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 further contribute to 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.
Signified by the APD designation, this lens incorporates an apodization filter in order to produce controllable and aesthetically-pleasing bokeh, which is characterized by sharp main subjects, tremendously blurred background, and an overall three-dimensional quality.
Since the apodization filter performs best at wider aperture values, a 3-stop ND filter is built into the lens to aid in controlling exposure. Using two separate sets of aperture values, the red series of numbers indicates the effective aperture value as it relates to depth of field. The standard white set of numbers indicates the actual f/stop number, and the difference between these two sets of numbers indicates the effectiveness of the filter.
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.

Chiaro Pro 62mm 99-UVBTS Brass UV Filter

The Pro 62mm 99-UVBTS Brass UV Filter is Chiaro’s top-performing protective UV filter offering 99% light transmission. It’s ideal for photographers who demand the highest-quality glass and other essential features for uncompromised image fidelity and premium construction.

To achieve superior 99% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished Schott glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. A scratch-resistant coating minimizes scratching of the glass and helps assure that water, oil, dust, and fingerprints are removed with a gentle wipe. The durable brass filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it’s thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses. Side knurling is crafted to help ensure that you’ll have a firm grip when attaching or removing your filter.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so that you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.

99% Light Transmission
Protecting your lens doesn't mean you have to lose optical quality. By using highly-polished Schott glass and advanced coatings, Chiaro can offer a 99% transmission rate, which is the highest possible transmission rate for glass. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.
Resistance Coating
The layers of advanced resistance coating on the filter are designed to resist moderate scratches, and allows you to easily clean your filter. Water beads up and rolls off your filter, and oil and fingerprints can come off with a gentle wipe. Dust and debris won't adhere to the filter and can be removed with a puff of air.
Polished Schott Glass
Glass that's polished to perfection is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The Schott glass in this Chiaro filter is highly-polished for flatness that ensures superior optical clarity.
Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.
UV Protection
The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.
Brass Construction
The durable brass filter ring offers a substantial, premium feel. The unique properties of brass minimize the chance of jamming or binding when you're screwing the filter onto your lens or stacking filters.
Slim Design
Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.
Top and Side Knurling
In addition to top knurling, Chiaro added side knurling that helps offer better options to grip the filter when you're attaching and removing it, or when you're stacking filters.
Secure Attachment
It takes two full turns to mount the filter on your lens. This feature will securely hold your Chiaro filter through the most demanding photo shoots.
Front Threads
The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.

FUJIFILM XF 56mm f/1.2 R APD Reviews

Would purchase again.

This lens replaced a Nikon 50 f/1.2 when I made the change to Fuji. Great lens with a slower than preferred focusing speed (I would give it 4.75 stars). In a dim studio, I find it easier to manual focus. I love this lens and would purchase it again.

Great DOF and Sharpness. Slow focusing

Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2015-06-07

I have primarily used this lens for portrait and street photography. The sharpness of and DOF in the photos (especially at f/1.2) is fantastic. The DOF provides opportunities for very creative portraits and candid shots. The lens is slow to focus, low light or otherwise. This is with relative to a Nikon 85mm f/1.4 from which is about the same price but much faster and sharper. Relatively heavy lens when used on a X-T1 body, but overall feels solid and compact.

Not worth the extra money.

A redundant lens that Fujifilm should have never made. If I had to chose between this lens and the original non-APD version, I'd go with the latter. (Hey Fuji! What's up with the cheap flimsy plastic lens hood?!) APD: -Slower & less accurate auto focus (no phase focus, only contrast detection). -Loss of about a stop of light at the widest f/stop. -Too contrasty. -Bokeh is not much different than the non-APD version. -Not weather sealed.

No, this lens is not compatible with a Canon 4000D. The 4000D takes Canon EF or EF-S lenses only.

The lens is not on the list of lenses supported by the 40mp APS-C sensor for the X-H2, what is the highest resolution for this lens on the new 40mp ASP-C sensor (specifically the X-T5)?
Asked by: Soowon
Any lens can be used on the 40mp cameras. This 56mm F1.2 APD is just not able to provide maximum resolution for the 40mp cameras which will be a subjective judgement depending on the user.
