The Fuji 56mm f1.2 R XF Fujinon Lens is a fast prime lens with a durable, metal construction and bright f1.2 aperture. The lens fits all of Fuji’s X-series compact system cameras and delivers beautiful bokeh and fast, quiet autofocusing making it particularly suitable for high quality portraits. The lens’ new optical design with Fuji’s HT-EBC coating ensures the best possible image resolution with minimal ghosting and flare, while the seven-blade rounded diaphragm produces sharp images with a smooth, natural blurred background effect. The Fuji 56mm f1.2 R XF lens is ideal for capturing a variety of topics, including portraiture, travel, and low light photography.
Advanced optical design for professional portraits
The lens’ new optical design featuring 11 elements in 8 groups delivers impressive results. The design includes two ED (extra low-dispersion) elements and one double-sided aspherical element, plus four elements with a convex surface facing the subject, which combine to reduce spherical and chromatic aberrations. They also ensure the best possible image resolution, even when the lens is at its widest aperture of f/1.2.
Image quality is further enhanced by Fujifilm’s proprietary HT-EBC coating that’s used on all lens surfaces to reduce ghosting and flare, while the seven-blade rounded diaphragm produces the creamy smooth bokeh effect that’s become synonymous with XF series lenses.
Attach the XF56mm F1.2 lens to a body that supports the Lens Modulation Optimiser *3 and picture quality leaps even higher thanks to the automatic correction of diffraction when shooting at smaller apertures.
Fast autofocus, silent operation
The XF56mm F1.2 R combines an inner focus mechanism *4 and a DC coreless motor for rapid autofocusing speeds, which are boosted further when used with a X-series camera body that supports phase detection AF. The structure and positioning of the focusing unit reduces sound and vibration for silent operation and with no lens barrel movement during focusing, the structure effectively prevents dust particles from getting into the lens and degrading picture quality.
Premium build quality
In keeping with the XF lens legacy, the 56mm F1.2 R features a durable, metal construction - including the aperture and focusing rings - to ensure a high quality feel. The aperture ring is designed to ensure it’s easy to detect ‘clicks’ between f-stops, while the focusing ring is both comfortable in use and has the perfect amount of torque so it’s simple to focus precisely.
