Fujifilm Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R Lens Review

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R Handling and Features

Fujifilm Fujinon Aspherical Lens 56mm F1 2 R XF (5)

The lens barrel is constructed from a combination of metal and high quality plastics, which has resulted in robust build. It is very lightweight, weighing 405g, especially given that it sports a fast f/1.2 maximum aperture. As a result it complements the Fujifilm X-Pro1 used for testing perfectly.

Focusing is performed internally, so the lens does not extend. As a result, the 62mm filter thread does not rotate, making it perfect for use with polarising and graduated filters. A deep circular hood attaches to the bayonet around the front of the lens. The manual focusing ring is well damped, making fine adjustments a pleasure to apply.

To complement the retro styling of Fuji's X-series cameras, this 56mm lens has a manual aperture ring for selecting your desired setting in a more traditional way. This aperture ring has each full stop marked, but has click stops for each intermediate 1/3 stop setting, and an 'A' setting for automatic operation. The aperture ring only requires a light touch to move through the aperture range, which is great for making quick adjustments, but care is required when changing lenses, as the aperture ring is easily moved.

Auto focus hunts a little in all conditions, but not as much as some other X-series lenses. The lens focuses accurately at wide apertures, so long as enough time is given for it to lock onto a subject.
