Fujifilm Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R APD Lens Review


Fujifilm XF 56mm APD Lens (7)

This telephoto lens for the Fujifilm X-series interchangeable lens cameras, may seem familiar, as it's virtually the same as the current 56mm f/1.2, which provides a field of view equivalent to an 84mm lens on a 35mm camera, sports a very bright f/1.2 maximum aperture and costs around £750. The difference with this lens is that it contains an apodisation (APD) filter in the optical path. The inclusion of this filter promises to produce smoother out of focus areas (bokeh), whilst maintaining crisp focus on your subject. The penalty for having the filter in the lens is that some light is lost at faster apertures. Another penalty is increased cost, with this lens being priced at around £1000, give or take a few pennies.
