Portrait lens battle! – Fujifilm 56mm f/1.2 vs Samyang 50mm f/1.2 | MirrorLessons

If you are looking for a portrait lens for the Fujifilm X series, the first choice that comes to mind (and that most photographers would recommend) is the XF 56mm f/1.2. Released two years ago, it was the first lens designed specifically for portraits by Fujifilm. I’ve never hidden my love for this glass; it is one of my favourite Fujinon lens. Before that the only viable option was the XF 60mm f/2.4 semi-macro lens released with the X-Pro1 in 2012. Today the choices for portrait photography have increased with the addition of the 56mm f/1.2 APD version and the XF 90mm f/2. However up until last year the system was lacking an alternative, less expensive solution. This is where Samyang comes in with its 50mm f/1.2 which was released in 2015…….

A practical and hands-on review of the Fujifilm X-T1 and 56 f1.2 | Malachi Ajose

Welcome to my review of  the Fujfilm X-T1 and Fujinon XF 56, ’the big guns’ combination. As stated in my last review, I wanted my review to be organic, realistic and useful for photographers.  I am not going to give you a large list of the technical specifications but rather my review on using the X-T1 as a camera and how it performs. It’s important to note that I wrote this review (X-T1 section) before the december firmware release and I added the 56 mm section after the release. One of the thing’s that I love about the Fujifilm community, they listen to there buyers, if something isn’t great with the current firmware they endeavour to fix it within the next update. As a photographer, I feel this is important, it makes you feel like your opinion is valued and not resolved in the next camera release, with a significantly higher price tag…….

Moonrise Above the Blue Mosque | Nasim Mansurov #XPro2 #xf56

Istanbul is one of the most magical cities of the world. Divided between Europe and Asia, Istanbul straddles the Bosphorus strait between the Black Sea and the Sea of Marmara. With its rich history and diversity, it is without a doubt one of the most popular cities of the world to visit. Although I had previously been to Turkey once in my teenage years (which included a sightseeing tour of Istanbul), coming here feels like home. Perhaps because I used to be fluent in Turkish and hearing the language reminds me of my childhood, or perhaps it has to do with my memories of attending a Turkish high school in Uzbekistan. Whatever the case, I love the beautiful country of Turkey and I absolutely adore the magnificent Istanbul…….

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 56mm F1.2 R | Jim Fisher

Photographers who shoot with the Fujifilm mirrorless camera system have a distinct choice to make when shopping for a short telephoto prime lens. The company sells two versions of its 56mm prime—this Fujinon XF 56mm F1.2 R ($999.95) and the Fujinon XF 56mm F1.2 R APD. It’s not just the cost of printing APD on the lens that carries a $500 premium—the apodization filter included in the pricier lens promises to smooth the defocused parts of an image for a more pleasing bokeh. Whether or not that’s worth it to you is something you have to decide for yourself—either lens is able to capture sharp photos with a staggeringly shallow depth of field with ease. But neither quite matches our Editors‘ Choice short telephoto lens for the Fuji system, the longer Fujinon XF 90mm F2 R LM WR……..

Nicolas Vandeberg: Photo session with Fujinon 56mm f/1.2 | Nicolas Vendeberg

Here is a preview of the photo shoot I did with Romane. This series was made at an abandoned site, in Verviers area! For this session, I tried to have a more natural approach. The photos were shot with the Fuji X-T1 and the Fujinon 56mm 1.2, made without flash or reflector. The photos were then treated with Lightroom and Photoshop……

Fujinon XF56mm f1.2 and XF16-55mm f2.8 Bokeh Comparison |
Dean Johnston

Following along from yesterday’s post, here are four photographs, in two sets of two. Each set has one photo with the 56mm f1.2 and one with the XF 15-55mm f2.8, in that order. All are wide open, and the XF16-55mm is at 55mm. Not overly rigorous in execution, but it does give you an idea of what to expect with a headshot and a background around 90 – 100 cm away. It’s the kind of thing I would be interested in, so hopefully some will find it useful……..

Finding Seoul with the Fuji XT1 & 56mm 1.2 | Blupace

Having owned the Fuji XT1 and 56mm 1.2 (none APD), for around 6 months, we thought it was about time to share our experience. A recent five day visit to Seoul, provided the perfect opportunity to compose a Blupace review. First some technical bits: Pictures are edited minimally in LR. Crop, contrast, Shadows, etc.. Captured as jpegs, with Monochrome+R filter, +2 shadows, +1 Highlights. We shoot full manual, back-focusing, with focus-ring and focus peaking. (Hovering over individual images, will provide camera setting). This will not be a technical review as there are many great sites providing this information. What we hope to provide, is more of an emotional review while exploring the city, navigating its metro, and meeting the people who live there…….

Why I love: the Fujinon XF56mmF1.2 lens | Fujifilm Blog

Most wedding photographers want to be able to separate their subjects from the background at some point during the day and the amazingly fast 1.2 aperture of the 56mm (85mm full frame equivalent) allows me to do that. Even when I’m shooting fast moving subjects, such as a confetti throw, I will sometimes want to offer a luscious depth of field and there is no other lens that offers that f1.2 aperture that allows me to do that right now. This lens, along with the 23mm lenses are my goto lenses for every single wedding I shoot. – Kevin Mullins ….

Wedding Photography 2015 with Fujifilm X-T1, 35mm, and 56mm lenses |
Mark Hadden

It had been a great year for wedding photography and I am lucky to have been part of a few weddings this year and hoping for many more in 2016. So many great couples have really added their personalities to their photos. Lots of new friends and relationships have been made. I made the transition from Canon 5d3 to the X-T1 earlier this year and indeed it was a bit frightening at first. A whole new system! God what was I thinking? It took me a while to get used to it and read a lot of helpful articles on the fuji x series blog HERE. I saw a few people switching over and somehow this made me feel more comfortable. I love the x cameras and also use the X100T for wedding work, but the 35mm 1.4 and 56 1.2 are my go to lenses. The image quality from the Fuji X System is great.  I’m not going to lie and say I dont miss anything about the full frame 24mp sensor of the Canon because I do. I miss the detail from the larger sensor for sure. I also shoot architecture and use a 36mp Sony A7R for that. If I could have half way between the A7R and X-T1 for detail I would be more than happy…….

A Review of the Fuji XF 56mm f/1.2 & XF 90mm f/2.0 Lenses |
Marius Masalar

Until this year, Fuji’s thoughtful and extensive lens line-up was missing an important component: a telephoto prime lens at the popular portraiture focal length of 135mm. Typically, portrait shooters have relied on workhorse focal lengths including the venerable 50mm and 85mm, both of which Fuji had covered with their XF 35mm f/1.4 and XF 56mm f/1.2 lenses (Fuji’s cameras use an APS-C sized sensor, so a 35mm lens is roughly equivalent to a 50mm field of view on a full-frame sensor). Now, Fuji shooters who wanted a bit more reach for their portraiture work can turn to the new XF 90mm f/2.0. As someone who recently bid farewell to a Canon full-frame setup in favour of a Fuji kit, I was excited to have the opportunity to spend several weeks with both the 56mm and brand new 90mm lenses in my bag……
