Love the shots of Target Field, Bob. It's a beautiful stadium, and the fisheye works really well for those shots.

couple of B&W's from a quick stop in NYC yesterday. I had about 30 minutes to play around with the X100s during some free time.

X-T1 w/56/1.2 all wide open. I might try another copy . . . not sure this is as sharp as other postings I've seen here.

Bob.....on the web sized images, it looks pretty sharp to me.

Maybe I need to play a bit more but it doesn't appear to be as sharp wide open as my 55FE on my Sony A7R.

Yeah, same here. I'm coming from a Canon setup with a couple of 1-series bodies and an 85/1.2, 200/2 etc. so I've got a fair idea of what I can do with shallow DOF lenses, and I can't get my 56 to work as well. (Tried it on both my X-T1 bodies.)

Time to have a talk to Fuji on Tuesday, I think.

(Just remembered I've got a Lens-align in the cupboard, will dig that out and shoot some test shots. (I used FoCal for my Canons in recent times.))

That is in part because the 55 FE is one of the best lenses made, short of the $4000 Opus, so its pretty hard to find many lens that will compare to it, plus, its on a 36meg sensor with no AA filter, which gives some pretty biting sharpness as long as the lens is up to it (which the 55 FE is)

Plus, I'm sure there are some optical trade-offs to get the f1.2 speed, while the 55 only had to be f1.8.

Compared to lens like my FD 55 1.2 or my MC Rokkor 58 1.2, the Fuji 56/1.2 is amazingly good wide open. I wish those old legacy lenses could come even halfway to how good the Fuji does at f1.2

^ Nice!

Well, after a bunch of tests, I returned my 56/1.2 for another copy. Holy crap, what a difference. This is more of what I expected shooting wide open. Nearly SOOC with Provia profile

Good to hear - testing mine today, but I'm pretty sure it's going back.

To the 56mm owners who had problems.
How does one know what to look for?
