Excerpt: So far this 85mm equivalent has performed well. Not weather sealed but about half the price. XF 56mm f/1.2 R APD is out of my price range. I am using this lens as part of a mirrorless system I use for party/fun photos.
Excerpt: I owned a Fuji 23mm lens, this is my second lens. This lens is sharp and built very well. The size and weight is similar to my 23mm. But the focus is slower than 23mm and you can hear some noise when it focus. People said it's normal. I don't think it matters too much neither. It just not as quiet as Canon USM (my old camera system). Switching lens is a little difficult because there is little room for my hand to hold on to it.
Summary: I was thinking of giving it only 4 stars but 1.2 is difficult for fast focus on any Brand lens. Other wise this baby is sharper than a MoFo and the Bokeh is just Lucius. The motor is a little noisy but this is irrelevant once you see your end results. 2 thumbs up for me :) By the way this lens may make me sell my 5D mk III. Using a Silver Graphite X-T1 with it.
Summary: I love this lens. A bit heavy for the camera but not to bad. You know I have a good selection of lens for my XT1's and they do add a little bit of weight to the lightweight mirrorless cameras. Sometimes I wonder if some of these lens defeats the purpose of the mirrorless cameras. But I can't say this is a heavy lens. It works perfectly on my camera body. Balanced well especially with the metal hand grip I use. And images are extremely sharp. This is a beautiful lens.
Excerpt: This is simply the best lens that I have had.. I switched from Nikon to Canon...then Canon to Fujifilm. In all the lenses that I used, this lens is really the best!!!! Sharp sharp sharp... even at F/1.2 and with the X-T1 ( with the electronic shutter) you can shoot outdoor in full sun at f/1.2 This lens gives you really awesome results.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
