Fujifilm XF 56mm F1.2 APD R Review | PhotographyBLOG


The Fujifilm XF 56mm F1.2 R APD lens has an internal focusing (IF) system. Unlike the original 56mm optic, the inclusion of the APD filter means that this lens does not support Phase Detect auto-focusing. In practice, we found the auto-focus to be fairly quick and mostly reliable in good light, but a little more hit and miss than the original 56mm lens in lower light situations. Note that this lens does have quite an audible auto-focusing noise, again something that has been addressed on other quieter XF lenses. The front of the lens does not rotate on focus, which is good news for anyone looking to use the lens in conjunction with a polariser or neutral density filter, something that is almost compulsory if you want to use the faster apertures outside in bright sunlight…….
