Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R
(From Fujifilm lens literature) FUJIFILM North America Corporation has announced the new FUJINON XF56mmF1.2 R, a premium portrait lens with an 85mm*1 equivalent that fits all FUJIFILM X-Series interchangeable lens cameras.
The FUJINON XF56mmF1.2 R is lightweight and less than half the size of an equivalent full-frame camera lens*2 for easy, comfortable use. The XF56mmF1.2 R also has a metal aperture ring for a premium quality feel and offers incredible speed and silence in the studio, perfect for the professional portrait photographer. The aperture ring on the XF56mmF1.2 R is designed to give users a satisfying ‘click’ between f-stops, with a perfectly torqued focusing ring for precise adjustments.
The FUJINON XF56mmF1.2 R lens has a new optical design that features 11 elements in 8 groups, and includes two ED (extra low-dispersion) elements and one double-sided aspherical element, plus four elements with a convex surface facing the subject, which combine to reduce spherical and chromatic aberrations for superior images.
