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.

Love the XR 56 f/1.2 -- what are alternatives?
I rented the Fuji XR 56 f/1.2 from Borrowlenses and absolutely love this lens. The color rendition and the fast 1.2 aperture really makes shooting my newborn so much fun. I thought I wouldn't like the focal length as I used to have an Nikon 85 f/1.8 back when I shot full frame Nikon with my D700. Something about this lens really is magical though, and perhaps my shooting style has evolved so now this focal length makes sense.. who knows :) However, the price tag of $1k is a little steep! I have a Fotodiox Nikon adapter, that I've been messing with mounting an old Nikon 35 f/2 I had left over and don't mind the manual focus given the focus peaking. I'm wondering if anyone would recommend any old fast Nikon glass of 50mm or higher that would possibly be comparable to the Fuji 56? Wondering if I can pickup an old good performing Nikon lens off eBay... Or am I dreaming and not possible?
56mm lens noise during video mode and AF-S mode
Hi I just got 56mm lens and it makes constant noise when it's in movie mode and AF-S mode kinda sound like aperture ring moving. Do other people experience this?
Fuji 18mm f/2 and 35mm f/1.4 (or Zeiss 32mm f/1.8) vs. 23mm f/1.4?
Hi, I recently acquired a Fuji X-pro1 for a great price and I am looking at starting my kit. I am splitting hairs over my decision on what to get to start the kit off. My first idea was to solely get the 23mm f/1.4. I am well aware that this lens is absolutely fantastic optically as well as mechanically, and I love the depth of field scale for use of zone focusing. I was very confident in my decision with this lens, but as I started thinking about its size, I got some cold feet, which brings me to my conundrum. The alternative kit for me would be the 18mm f/2 and either the 35mm f/1.4 or 32mm 1.8 Zeiss lens. As far as the 18mm goes, I know that it is potentially the weakest optically from the Fuji X lens offerings, and I would use it primarily for landscapes, but I feel that the size could potentially make up for the slightly sub-par IQ. The thing I am worried about is the high CA present on the lens for landscapes. And as for the 50mm equivalents, I am drawn slightly more ...
