FUJIFILM XF 56mm f/1.2 R Overview

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

FUJIFILM XF 56mm f/1.2 R Lens

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.

Chiaro 62mm 95-UVAT UV Filter

The 62mm 95-UVAT UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highly-rated protective UV filters with 95% light transmission. It’s useful for photographers of all levels who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for great image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 95% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. A hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it’s thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses.

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 you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.

95% Light Transmission

Protect your lens while maintaining optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass, Chiaro offers a 95% transmission rate. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.

Polished Optical Glass

Highly-polished glass is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is polished for flatness that ensures great 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.

Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction

The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.

Slim Design

Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.

Top Knurling

Top knurling is designed to offer a firm grip on the filter when you're attaching or removing it.

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.

I just switched to the Fuji system and this lens is amazing. Extremely sharp, excellent bokeh, built like a tank but not too heavy. You won't be disappointed with this lens.

Bokeh! Bokeh!

I'm still amazed at how sharp the Fuji lenses are; the 56 f/1.2 is no exception. Close focus is stellar and fast on my X-T3. Best for portraits and prints look amazing, for sure!

Superior lens

Attach it to Fujifilm XT-3, took a shot of myself head and shoulder, project the image to a 65 inch 4K TV, enlarge the image to have my face covering the whole screen, OMG... I saw every wrinkles, and believed that I am older than what I saw in the mirror. This is a super sharp and super fast lens, and I think it's better than all my Nikon lens, and compete to my Zeiss Milvus 85mm F1.4. If budget is not a problem, go get it now, you won't be regret to every penny you spent on it.

A gift!

I'm told it does well and I'm thinking of get one for myself. I had though of getting the Fuji F/1 but the reviews on that lens are kinda shaky so I may settle for the F/1.2 R for myself and it is cheaper.

Great Lens!

Perfect for portrait and still life work on the X-Pro3. Capable on the streets if you are patient, otherwise the autofocus speed on this one is gonna be far slower than you're used to if coming from the f/2 primes.

It was a cloudy morning in New York Central Park and this lens did an amazing job to capture this little squirrel. My most favorite pics during my trip to NYC :)

Very special lens

I highly recommend this lens. Don't listen to the reviews about how bad the auto focus is. It might not be the fastest in the line-up, but it's fine, trust me. The sharpness, even at f1.2, is amazing. I love it. It has real character.

Has AF improved on X-T3 body, with recent firmware updates, when coupled with this lens?
Asked by: Alan
According to Fujifilm, the AF has been improved with firmware version 4.00. That being said, the AF performance with the XF 56mm f/1.2R Lens attached would be excellent.

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:

how does this compare with the Voightlander 58mm f1.4 for fuji x?
Asked by: Louis
I haven't yet tried the Voightlander with my XT2 or XT3 though I did try it on my Nikon D750 when I had it. That said, I can only compare my results with the Voightlander 58mm mounted to the D750 against the Fujifilm XT2 and / or XT3 mounted to the 56mm F1.2 . . . On the D750 the Voightlander 58mm rendered soft images wide open @ F1.4. Closed down to F2 and beyond it performed fine. On both my XT2 and XT3 the 56mm F1.2 is plenty sharp at all apertures. Provided that your Fujifilm camera has eye AF the choice is a no-brainer, unless you shoot with Nikon DSLRs too. In which case the Voigtlander might prove more versatile. I doubt I answered your question to the degree you desired, but don't expect a world of sharpness from the Voightlander used at F1.4.

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.

I have not used this 56mm f/1.2 R Lens for field astrophotography. However, it seems like it would be great for a select part of the sky in a composition.
