Natural Light Fujinon XF56mm f1.2 Portrait

Despite moaning that I find the XF56mm f1.2 a little long for easy use in cramped Japan, I really do love the results. Here’s one more, from a set taken for this year’s nengajo (New Year cards).




Not so sure – Bokeh and the Fujifilm XF 56 f1.2 lens

So, more samples are popping up on the internaught of the new Fujifilm X-Series 56mm (84mm equivalent) f1.2 lens and what it can produce.

So far, I’m not feeling too impressed. Today for example, I found these, and I’m not really digging the look of the bokeh wide & almost wide open – especially the first three at the top and the two bamboo grove shots later on, further down.

I’ve looked at quite a few examples over the last few weeks, and it doesn’t always bug me. So, it’s going to be interesting to see how this plays out. Is it just some situations stressing things, or is this going to be typical?
