The XF 56mm F1.2 R is a premium fast 'portrait' prime for Fujifilm's X system mirrorless cameras. It offers an angle of view equivalent to 85mm on full frame, and uses an inner focusing system for fast, silent autofocus. It has an aperture ring with detents at 1/3 stop intervals, but unlike the company's wide angle primes, no distance or depth of field scales.

"Preview Depth of Field" on X-T1 w/ 56mm
When I was using my Nikon D7000, pressing the "preview depth of field" button had a very clear effect. The viewfinder would dim slightly, the depth of field was clearly changing, and there was the audible noise of the diaphragm closing (if the selected aperture required it, of course). I noticed that this function is an option for the Fn buttons of the XT-1, so I gave it a shot yesterday. I set the aperture to F16, pushed the button and nothing much happened. Am I doing something wrong? I am puzzled because the effect was really very clear (and very useful!) on the Nikon. Thanks!
I know in one of the many settings in the menu you can turn the Preview on or off. I have it ON. The only logical reason to have it OFF would be if using a flash and set to 180sec the viewfinder is dark. So only then would I have it OFF. But I use it on and get a perfect preview of the depth of field upon the half shutter press. Continue Reading
