The Fujifilm XF 56mm F1.2 R APD Lens is a standard prime lens with a focal length equivalent to 85mm (35mm format equivalent). The lens has a maximum aperture of F1.2 making it one of the world’s brightest autofocus lens for digital cameras with an APS-C sensor. In addition, the new apodizing filter makes it the perfect choice for portraits, with every strand of hair visible and a unique bokeh effect. The built-in APD filter, the pinnacle of Fujifilm's nanotechnology, produces smoother bokeh, making the subject stand out distinctly from the background, and enhances creativity for portraits and a wide range of other subjects. When attached to an X Series camera body, the XF56mm F1.2 R APD lens weighs about half as much as a DSLR camera with a lens of the same focal length and F value (research by Fujifilm). Plus it’s quick to use thanks to the high-speed, quiet autofocus.
Optical quality and Apodization Filter
The FUJINON XF56mmF1.2 R APD lens offers brilliant levels of sharpness even when shooting with aperture F1.2. In addition, the apodization filter smooths the outline of the subject to create a more natural bokeh effect. This combination of image sharpness and beautiful bokeh delivers portraits with a three-dimensional feel. This lens uses an optical construction of 11 glass elements in 8 groups, including one aspherical glass molded lens element and two extra low dispersion lens elements. Spherical aberrations are corrected by the aspherical glass element to deliver high resolution at the maximum aperture setting. Additionally, thanks to the combination of two extra-low dispersion lens elements and three cemented lens elements, chromatic aberrations are greatly reduced. By applying Fujifilm's unique HT-EBC (High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating) to all lens surfaces, ghosting and flare are controlled for sharp, clear results.
Excellent build quality
To indicate the apodizing effect, the lens features an aperture ring showing the effective F No. in red. The difference between the F No. and the effective F No. indicates the effectiveness of the apodization filter. Both the focus and aperture rings are metal, as well as the exterior of the lens body, for a high-quality finish. The texture and torque on the rings makes shooting smooth and even for delicate manual focusing.
