I went to the North Market here in Columbus today, as I thought it would be a good place to run the 56/1.2 through its paces. I thought I'd just be taking pics of everyday things, but asked a few of the workers if they minded me taking pics and none refused, so I got some good people pics. This first one is one of my most favorite candids I've ever taken, so I'm glad I asked! She was crazy backlit, so I just let that part blow and concentrated on exposing her correctly.

Of course, I'm still seeing how it does for subject separation and quality at f/1.2, so these are all taken there. Aside from some longitudinal CA, it's pretty much perfect. The bokeh is slightly busier than some of the other Fuji lenses, but I actually kind of like the character, but that's subjective, of course.

Looks pretty sharp wide open. How is the AF speed with this lens?

Are you using face detect or normal AF point ?

I've found that with the Fuji's, they seem to focus on the face, but don't seem to make any attempt to actually focus on the eyes, unlike Olympus, which is brilliant in that regard, even letting you pick an eye. As such, even with the 35/1.4, I found I was sometimes getting focus on the nose or forehead, and the eyes were slightly soft

Given the super thin DoF of the 56/1.2, this would be even more of an issue perhaps ?

Normal AF point. I don't generally use face detect, and wouldn't really attempt it with this lens due to the very shallow DOF. The AF speed is decent, but not blazing. It had a little trouble at first with the backlight, but recovered well (as you can see!) Only one of the shots I took today was out of focus, and that only by about half an inch or so (which could be due to subject or photographer movement).

I like your candid photo, but the more I think about it, the more I kind of wonder if I should just get the 60mm Macro instead of paying another $300/stop...

Nevermind....I forgot we had sales going on....at $400, the 60 is a steal right now (I own both....the 60 is extremely good. Focuses slowly, but very good).

Jman13, those pics looks good with the 56/1.2! .. I personally prefer "busier" bokeh as it adds character rather than completely smooth bokeh. Would love to get this lens but I just got the 23mm so I'll have to wait awhile. Maybe when Fuji have savings on the 56

Looks like I better put that 56/1.2 on the list!

In the meantime, I'm liking my new X-T1 that arrived today. Jpegs with the kit lens. Never saw a kit lens this good.

I would probably just want to use it for close-ups and some portraiture. I am usually a fan of shorter focal lengths for portraits and I guess 56mm and 60mm are close enough.

Jman13 - I really liked your last picture, with the beautifully curving syrup (?) from the bottle.

I certainly think the syrup contributes to making that a really neat shot, but #1 really does more for me. The lighting was handled to perfection on 1 and it was not an easy light to handle IMO. When I see her expression and that exposure both being about as good as it gets....pretty close to perfection in my book!
Excellent work!

Blah, why did I cancel my 56mm pre-order. Fortunately I have the 60mm to soak up some of the remorse, but still...these examples are making me regret the choice.

I'm regret I cancelled my order too ( couple days ago Adorama had them in stock)
I'm debating between this and 60mm.

Jman, may you shot some comparable shots with 60mm? Thanks in advance.

I new to Fuji so I'm building up my system. I got the 60mm since it's on sale for $399 which seems ridiculously low. I figure I'll add the 56mm in a month for two but the 60 works OK for portraits (if you want to get both eyes in focus) and can also be used as a macro. The 56 is full price right now and while excellent the only real advantage is the ultra shallow DoF.
