Fuji 56mm f1.2 II Lens | Fujifilm 56mm f1.2 R II WR
The fuji 56mm f1.2 II R WR Lens is the new version of Fujifilm's legendary portrait lens. With a maximum aperture F1.2 will allow portrait enthusiasts to play with the blur and enjoy its beautiful bokeh. Fujifilm 56mm f1.2 R II WR has an optical construction produces with which you will get a great sharpness without aberrations, full of details and color. AF has also been improved for greater accuracy and speed as well as a minimum focusing distance of just 56mm.

The FUJI 56mm f1.2 II R WR lens is a fast medium telephoto lens with a focal length of 56mm (equivalent to 85mm in the 35mm film format). It succeeds the maximum aperture of F1.2, a popular feature of its predecessor "FUJINON XF56mmF1.2 R Lens" (previous model), while boasting a significant improvement in image resolution performance and close-up capability. The fast lens produces beautiful bokeh that adds dimension to visual expressions.
The Fujifilm 56mm f1.2 R II WR consists of 13 elements in eight groups, including two spherical elements and one ED element. The design minimizes chromatic, spherical, and chromatic aberrations to provide higher image resolution performance than the previous model from minimum object distance (MOD) to infinity. Its F1.2 maximum aperture produces a shallow depth of field to add an artistic touch to images. The surface of the aspherical lens elements is processed with high precision to reduce the onion ring effect and achieve a beautiful bokeh effect. The minimum focusing distance has been reduced by approx. 20cm from the previous model to approx. 50cm*1, allowing users to get closer to the subject in portraits, snapshots and desktop photographs.
The addition of the XF56mmF1.2 R WR further enhances the XF lens lineup, expanding the coverage of photographic categories to enhance users' photographic pleasure, provided by the X Series of mirrorless cameras equipped with the APS-C sensor.
*1 Distance from sensor surface to subject. The minimum distance from the front end of the lens is approximately 41 cm.
(1) Excellent image resolution performance and beautiful bokeh
- The lens design, consisting of 13 elements in eight groups, including two aspherical elements and an ED element, suppresses various types of aberration, including chromatic aberration and spherical aberration, to achieve end-to-end image sharpness and creamy bokeh that smoothly blurs from the focal plane in the background.
- The focus group contains a total of eight elements, including three high-refractive elements, which are typically used in cinema camera lenses, to suppress aberration jitter and maintain image quality superior from MOD to infinity.
- This is the first Fujifilm lens for mirrorless digital cameras that uses 11 diaphragm blades to achieve a near-perfect circle at the aperture, better than the previous model. The aspherical elements are produced with a metal mold processed with advanced precision of one hundred thousandths of a millimeter to suppress the onion ring effect in bokeh, demonstrating Fujifilm's commitment to creating beautiful bokeh.

(2) Medium telephoto lens with enhanced close-up capability to suit a wider variety of photographic situations
- The new lens, with a focal length of 56mm medium telephoto lens (equivalent to 85mm in the 35mm format) and the maximum aperture of F1.2, is a perfect choice for portraits to clearly separate the subject from its background.
- The minimum focusing distance has been reduced to just 50 cm, about 20 cm less than the previous model. The reduced distance restriction in relation to the subject allows users to enjoy a greater variety of photographic situations, such as desktop photographs and snapshots.
(3) AF function driven by an evolved DC motor for fast and accurate autofocus
- The lens uses a DC motor, suitable for driving large elements. You can precisely control the focus group, which consists of eight elements and an aperture unit, to automatically focus on the subject quickly and accurately. Advanced autofocus capability ensures you capture decisive photo opportunities even when shooting with shallow depth of field.
- The use of a bearing mechanism has successfully reduced the friction that arises when the DC motor is driving the lens elements, effectively reducing motor noise.
(4) Adoption of dust and weather resistance and ability to operate at -10°C to improve practical usability
- The lens is designed to take full advantage of the compact and lightweight "X-Mount System"*2, weighing just 445g and measuring 76mm despite being a fast lens with a maximum aperture of F1.2. It reduces the strain on users when walking with the lens mounted on a camera, which adds an extra sense of mobility.
- The lens cylinder is weather-sealed in nine places to ensure dust and weather resistance, and recently adopts the ability to operate at temperatures as low as -10°C. The front lens element is applied with flu.
