p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · XF 56mm 1.2 R - Quick Review


Having consumed Canon FFs for years I have now been on a strick Fuji APS-C diet for a couple of years and have lost several pounds. For years I used a combination of the EF 85L II and 135L for my portrait work, so it was interesting to take the XF 56mm 1.2L for a spin for a few days.

Generally speaking, I would be happy to shoot with this lens, just not fully sure I need it, as I have been using either my 35mm f/1.4 or 90mm f/2. I think I will also give the XF 50mm f/2 a try before I make any decisions.

It gets even more complicated as I am starting to poke at the idea of combining my Fuji X-Pro2 setup with a new full frame option with a couple of lenses to compliment. Canon just released the EF 85mm 1.4L IS or Nikon's 105mm 1.4 looks good as well. If you completely open that can of worms the A7rIII with a Batis 85 could also be an option, although all FF options seem expensive to me.

I posted a few photos in my blog if interested.

I would definitely try the 50mm f2. I love how it renders and the 9-round bladed blades makes the OOF area look wonderful. It also focuses quite close.

I've now had a chance to try the 50mm f/2 out as well. I've blogged about it with a comparison to the 56mm.
