56mm ƒ/1.2 vs. APD | Fuji vs. Fuji

If I’m being honest, I was initially wondering what the difference was. The more I look at these images though, the more I can see the difference the APD filter is making in blurring out the background into a sea of smooth, dreamy, blurry, buttery, goodness. This makes perfect sense as it’s the trained eye that picks up on nuances like this. The kind of people I could see wanting the 56mm ƒ/1.2 APD are studio photographers who need their backgrounds blurred out and can have their focus preset, and especially outdoor portrait/wedding photographers where the lack of phase detect autofocus matters much less, and where backgrounds that are even just a little bit creamier can make the difference. I imagine someone out there somewhere has already attempted the Brenizer Method with the 56mm ƒ/1.2 APD, and it ought to yield incredible results……
