Incredible lens...

Comments about Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2 R Lens:

The Fuji system has great lenses and this is no exception. It's sharp (very good even at f/1.2) and the focus is fairly fast. My only minor gripe is I wish the focus ring had the same mechanism as the 23mm where you can pull the ring back to switch to manual focus. Otherwise this lens is excellent. You won't regret the purchase.

Comments about Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2 R Lens:

First order of the lens was Auto-focusing somewhat slower compared with a friends exact lens. We sent back for an exchange due to it being defective. B&H came through with the exchange efficiently fast and we are now back to work with a new X-t2 and 56mm lens. Beautiful photos, fast auto focusing.

So nice, might buy it twice

By JD

Comments about Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2 R Lens:

I'm primarily a prime lens shooter and use this lens for portrait photography among many other things, but mostly what it is intended for.
This has quickly become my favorite lens in my lineup, mainly because of it's insane sharpness and equally as crazy 1.2 aperture.

All Fuji lenses are great, but the 56mm f1.2 might be the best of their primes. It is expensive, but I can see myself buying another one in the future.

Comments about Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2 R Lens:

I purchased this lens with the X-T2. This is an amazing piece of glass. It captures every detail. Images are magical, even shot in RAW (out of camera) almost no corrections needed In Lightroom. Lightroom is getting better at handling RAW Fuji files.

Comments about Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2 R Lens:

I don't have bad thinns to say about this lens. I bought the xt2 with the kit lens and this one, the kit lens is really good but the 56mm 1.2 is amazing. I can't stop using it wide open.

I love this lens in terms of bokeh and sharpness

Comments about Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2 R Lens:

I have been using heavy DSLRs and wanted to try out mirrorless processors to lessen my now injured knee when I am doing photo ops and of course when I do travel.

I have a Fuji X-T10 and been using this 56mm f/1.2 lens for the last year and I can say that I have never missed my Canon 6D and 50mm f/1.2 a bit.  

Sharpness and bokeh are superb and post editing now doesn't take forever.  Right now I just need to crop and adjust hue and lighting a little bit and ready to share in an instant.

Stunning

Comments about Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2 R Lens:

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.

XF 56mm - Perfect For Portraits

By Andrew

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2 R Lens:

Cons: slower focusing, bulkier size, no WR, and very loose aperture ring.

Most of those are a non-issue with the primary purpose of this lens being portraiture work. In that realm, this lens is fantastic. Sharp, contrasty, great color, no distortion, amazing bokeh wide open, perfect working distance to subjects (not too close or far). It's hard to really fault this great lens for what it's intended to be used for.

Razor-Sharp Portrait Tool

By Tom

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Fujifilm XF 56mm f/1.2 R Lens:

I've owned or used some of the legendary portrait lenses in digital and 35mm photography. None beats this 56mm f/1.2. The painterly-quality rendered by these razor-sharp optics have to be seen to be believed. The lens is compact, light-weight, and supremely well engineered and constructed. I own six Fujinon lenses, four of which are prime. This and the 23mm f/1.4 are my favorites; in fact, if I had to choose a pair of lenses, these would be the ones. Do not hesitate to give this lens a chance. You won't be disappointed.
