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 Pro 62mm 98-UVATS UV Filter

The Pro 62mm 98-UVATS UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highest-rated protective UV filters with 98% light transmission. It’s ideal for photographers of all levels who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for excellent image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 98% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical 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. Its hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it is thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses. Side knurling helps assure 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.

98% Light Transmission

Protecting your lens doesn't mean you have to lose optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass and advanced coatings, Chiaro offers a 98% transmission rate, which is an excellent 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 allow 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 Optical Glass

Glass that's polished to perfection is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is highly-polished for flatness that ensures excellent 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 and Side Knurling

In addition to top knurling, Chiaro added side knurling to better 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.

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.

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.

Want to use for portraits of my toddler. Is the auto-focus as bad as everyone says it is or should I still be able to get some sharp photos with it?
Asked by: Anonymous
I have used the 56 (as well as the 35) for plenty portraits of my wife and friends with a Pro2 camera, but no experience with toddlers. The focusing is great and reasonable speed, with the caveat is that it takes a good fraction of a second or more to focus. The resolution is very good you can count the eyelashes one by one. A very good lens.Hector Baldis

No, it's not and I don't think Fuji will ever make it in WR version, because that might significantly affect the size of the lens.
