Excerpt: great portrait lens....now my xt1 is taking shots equal to my nikon d7000. I was not as happy with my earlier zoom lens and was regretting purchase of my XT1 until I got this lens . Very nice bouquet...great aperature for shooting flowers creatively. Focus distance is a little far away and lens is a little noisy as it does its autofocus, but I was aware of this before my purchase and am still very happy with this lens. It is expensive though.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This is a fast lens and the resolution is very good. It's a little larger than I expected, but works fine. You can't get much faster than f/1.2. I shot a few quickies just to test it out and I'm glad I bought it.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: The Fuji XF 56mm f/1.2 was the most anticipated (and longest wait listed item) that I've seen in a while. I couldn't wait to get my hands on it, and boy is it worth the wait. I recently ditched my Canon DSLR system for the smaller, Fuji systems. I mostly shoot portraits and commercial work, so the Fuji systems are perfect for me in terms of size, weight, image quality, and a few other things. The XF 56mm lens is an absolutely stunning lens for portraiture.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
