Fujifilm has announced the XF 56mm F1.2 R portrait lens. The Fujifilm XF 56mm F1.2 R is a new fast portrait lens for X-series mirrorless cameras.
Fujifilm XF 56mm F1.2 R features a fast maximum aperture of f/1.2, angle of view equivalent to an 85mm lens on full frame and delivers beautiful bokeh, making it particularly suitable for high quality portraits. The lens uses an internal focus design for fast, silent autofocus.
The lens has an aperture ring which Fujifilm says has been engineered to give positive click stops, something that hasn’t really been the case with previous XF lenses.
