medium-telephoto prime lens. The fast F1.2 lens produces creamy bokeh,
while its 56mm focal length, equivalent to 85mm in 35mm film format,
offers a comfortable shooting distance from the subject. X-Series cameras
have won a solid reputation for their faithful reproduction of skin tones
and combining them with this lens delivers the ultimate portrait
photography results. The built-in APD filter, the pinnacle of Fujifilm's
nanotechnology, produces even smoother bokeh, making the subject stand out
even more and enhances creativity, not only for portraits, but also on a
wide range of other subjects.
A fast-aperture AF lens with an apodization
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.
construction of 11 glass elements in 8 groups, including one aspherical
glass molded 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
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.
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*4 to
produce images with edge-to-edge sharpness and create a realistic
three-dimensional effect, even at small apertures.
Autofocusing for a lens with an
In the past, an apodization filter has only been
used on a manual focus lens, this is the first to use high-precision
Combined with an X Series camera body, more natural shots
of subjects are possible thanks to the near-silent shutter sound.
