The latest of the XF series, which is Fujifilm’s label for fast-aperture, high-end lenses. As such, it has a high build characteristic with robust exterior. Just like the former XF56, this lens has a new optical design with 11 elements in 8 groups but excluding apodization filter, a 62 mm filter thread and an amazing F1.2 to F16 aperture with built-in APD filter that produces creamy bokeh. Inspired by the XF lens family, the XF56mmF1.2 R APD has autofocus that is intended to be very easy to use and a finest quality look, advanced optical design and premium build quality. It also has one double-sided aspherical element and two ED (extra-low dispersion) elements used to operate chromatic and spherical aberrations.
Product Features in Detail
Apodization filter delivers more creative portraits
The FUJINON LENS XF56mmF1.2 R APD offers brilliant levels of sharpness even when shooting with the aperture at F1.2. In addition, the apodization filter smoothes the bokeh's outlines. This combination of image sharpness and beautiful bokeh delivers portraits with a three-dimensional feel.
Autofocusing for a lens with an apodization filter
In the past, an apodization filter has only been used on a manual focus lens, this is the first to use high-precision contrast AF. Combined with an X Series camera body, more natural shots of subjects are possible thanks to the near-silent shutter sound.
The XF56mm F1.2 R APD offers brilliant levels of sharpness even when shooting with the aperture at F1.2. In addition, the apodisation filter smoothes the bokeh’s outlines. This combination of image sharpness and beautiful bokeh delivers portraits with a three-dimensional feel.
High resolution at the maximum aperture setting
An optical construction of 11 glass elements in eight groups, including one aspherical glass moulded lens element and two extra low dispersion lens elements has been used. 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.
HT-EBC (High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating)
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. The lens also makes the most of Fujifilm’s unique X-Trans™ CMOS low pass filter-less sensor for extremely high image quality. Ghosting and flare are controlled even under harsh conditions such as backlighting.
Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO)
By combining this lens with an X Series camera body with Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO) technology, the performance from the lens is improved even further. LMO corrects for diffraction*6 to produce images with edge-to-edge sharpness and create a realistic three-dimensional effect, even at small apertures.
Film-like effects with the Film Simulation function
X Series interchangeable lens cameras are equipped with Film Simulation modes, which have been developed using Fujifilm's knowledge from 80 years of manufacturing to deliver film-like colors and tones. Combining this lens with the Pro Neg. Film Simulation mode, which is specifically designed for portrait photography, reproduces beautiful skin tones.
High build quality and comfortable operation
The apodization filter delivers its best results at wider apertures. To enable wide apertures to be used even in bright environments, an ND filter is included that adjusts brightness in three levels. 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, plus metal is also used on the exterior of the lens body for a high-quality finish. The texture and torque on the rings makes for comfortable shooting even for delicate manual focusing.
