Lens Reviews / Fujinon Lenses i Lab tested

(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.

  • FUJIFILM X-Mount is compatible with all FUJIFILM interchangeable system cameras

  • HT-EBC*3 multi-layer coating to minimize ghosting and flare

  • Additional newly-developed coating added to the reverse side of the front lens to further reduce the ghosting that typically occurs when using deep concave lenses

  • Enhanced resolving power at all apertures when used with an X-series camera*4 that incorporates a Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO) function

  • Seven-blade aperture diaphragm that helps create smooth and round bokeh effects

  • Minimum working distance of 70cm

  • Inner focusing system that moves small elements in the middle or at the rear of the lens, while keeping the large, front elements stationery for high-speed AF
