I didn't find any topic for this lens, so I decided to start this one. Actually I found one photo on Flickr, I would say, it looks very promising.

I'm interested in the XF 50mm f/2 as my next lens for X-Pro2. Background rendering looks very nice.

I think, this is going to be very popular lens, especially, if AF is as fast as 35mm F2.

picked up my copy yesterday evening. First impressions:


  1. AF is fast, but not as fast as the 35F2 or 23F2
  2. build quality is awesome
  3. the lens is very sharp

Thanks. Looking forward to seeing more from this lens. I just picked up the X100F, so I need to wait a little bit until I purchase my next lens for my X-Pro2. But this one is likely to be next for me when that time does come.

Keep the samples coming please!

Would you buy the lens if you already have the 60mm 2.4? Shooting mostly portrait of family and travel.

My copy should be here tomorrow. I'll post some pics once I've had some time with it.

Anxious to try this one too. Despite really liking the great longer glass from Fuji, I think I'm going to scale my kit down to 3 small primes. This would be the last of the trio 23/35/50. Well, make it 4...I really like the 14mm too.

Yes , the focus on the 60mm is still slow even on the newer bodies. The 50 focuses really quick , but I shoot alot of closeup / macroish so I will keep the 60 also.

First, a little background. I just got my first Fuji camera, the X-T1, a few weeks ago, so take my findings with a grain of salt. Having said that, my first lens was the 35mm f2, but the focal length wasn't really for me, so I sold it here to fund the 50mm, which I received yesterday along with a 23mm 1.4. Off the bat, I noticed the focus speed was noticeably slower and possibly noisier than the 35mm, and the 50mm also tends to hunt for focus a bit more. It's not terrible, and it doesn't take away too much from the lens, but it is there. Anyway, I got my copy yesterday and slapped it on and started taking some shots around the house, then ran to the park with the wife and kiddo for a bit.

Already doing well in low light:




Sharp Close up:


And with a bit more distance:




Ugly background still not so bad:


Closest Focus:


This is interesting. Below is a 100% crop comparing this lens to my Canon 50mm 1.4 shot at f2 on a crop body. Not only is there a noticeable increase in sharpness on the Fuji, but the CA is controlled so much better. Keep in mind, this is in a well-lit room with a background that's not too busy:


I mostly shot wide open, as I intend for this to be used primarily for family portraiture, so I was interested in the bokeh quality. I chose this over the 56mm simply for it being a more familiar focal length, having more aperture blades and for its weather sealing. I still may pick up the 56mm, but probably not before I grab a 90mm and a 16mm(that one will be more for landscapes though).

Weather permitting, I have my first paid shoot using the Fuji system this weekend, so with any luck I'll post some more shots soon.

Side note: I had intended to share these JPEGs straight out of camera, but again, due to my lack of familiarity with the system, I had a few exposure and color issues. So, I did some minor edits here and there, but only for color and exposure. No sharpening or anything like that. This is my first time posting hosted images here, so hopefully they are sized appropriately.

I must say that Fuji 50mm is a must have lens for the amateur photographer and hobbyist like I am. Truly great build quality, small, lightweight, and produced wonderful images

just picked it up, it focuses nice and quick even in low light on the X-T2 at the store.

12-18-50 will be my travel kit!

Got mine over the weekend, but between work and bitterly cold weather the last two weekends, I haven't had a chance to really shoot with it. Took a few indoor shots, and it looks great from what I can tell.

here's a comparison test shots I did with the XF 50mm f2 against the Pentax K 50mm 1.4, AiS 50mm 1.8 and Summicron 50mm collapsible

http://www.fujix-forum.com/threads/xf-50mm-f2-vs-adapted-50mm-lenses.67252/

will compare it with my Pentax SMC 55mm 2 next

Hate to say it, but I let mine go. For my pro work, it just made more sense for me to move up to the 56 1.2. I do really love this lens, but since I'm new to Fuji, I decided I should try to get my hands on all the lenses that convinced me to switch in the first place. I've now got the original 23 and 56, and will be getting the 16 and the 50-140 soon, and maybe the Rokinon 12 to cover my ultrawide. Once that's done, I'll probably go back and pick this one back up along with the 23 and 35 f2 versions.

i see where the confusion was, i was thinking 18mm in APS-C format and 28mm in FF format
12mm, 18mm and 50mm

might bring the XM-FL 24mm f/8 for street shooting as it's small enough
