From the Manufacturer
A fast F1.2 lens with a focal length of 85 mm* that delivers beautiful background bokeh so it's ideal for portraiture. The lens' incredible resolving power is thanks to a new optical design featuring 11 elements in 8 groups. Two ED (extra-low dispersion) elements and one double-sided aspherical element are used to control spherical and chromatic aberrations, while a further four of the elements feature convex surfaces to ensure excellent light coverage, even when shooting wide open.
Like other XF lenses, the XF56 mm F1.2 R is designed to be comfortable in use and has a premium quality look and feel.

85mm (full frame) is my favorite focal length, along with 35mm for the wider end.
I began with the classic, seemingly best-bang-for-your-buck Canon 85mm 1.8. It was reasonably sharp at 1.8 (usually) and sharpening up nicely by 2.8. The only thing was, it had horrendous chromatic aberrations (purple fringing) that made post-processing that much longer and more tedious. Enter the Sigma 85mm 1.4 at @ 2.5 time the cost of the Canon. A much better lens in terms of sharpness and color/contrast, as at 1.6, it was as good as anything out there, BUT I had to go through 4 copies to get one that didn't mis-focus (even with AF adjustment) or have some other mechanical issue. In a nutshell, not reliable enough for wedding work. So, I eventually caved and dropped the big bucks on the venerable Canon 85mm 1.2L II, otherwise known as the king of kings in the dreamy, bokeh-laden land of fast lenses. Now, the word "fast," as you've likely heard, merely describes it's light-gathering ability, because when defining it's focusing speed, this is an entirely ironic word. It's dog slow, it hunts. When you nail it, it's superb, but between the fact that it costs as much as a new 6D body AND a 85mm 1.Read more ›
I shoot a lot of PORTRAITURE. Headshots, environmentals, bridals, fashion, journalism. The 85-90mm focal length is one of my favorites. Tight if you move in close, yet loose enough to get just enough background and sense of place when you back up some. And the size of the glass is not too big or heavy for easy carry and quick use. I also like a small prime as it forces you to move around and find the best angles (rather than zoom in and out)—I find that I generally shoot better when using primes because I work harder for the better composition.
This lens has extraordinary BUILD QUALITY, just leaps above the plasticky (yet pricey) offerings of other major brands. I'm not knocking the quality of the glass of competitors, but the general sense of build and aesthetics doesn't usually come close to this. The Fuji just feels like it was built in another time period, when mechanical engineering and quality components was important.
The MANUAL FOCUS RING is honestly one of the best i have ever felt. Damped with just the right amount of resistance with silky smooth turning...and a good amount of range for intricate focus feel. You almost wonder if its at the expense of a faster AF though. The autofocus does work well, it is smooth and generally locks on target quickly and accurately. It does have a bit of noise however, more than i would like, especially for video use, but the MF is so nice that it would be more useful in focus pulling for video anyway.Read more ›
Some random thoughts:
1. Wow is this thing sharp. Center, corners, everywhere, even wide open at f/1.2. Too sharp in some ways for a portrait lens. I'll be doing some retouching on portraits to smooth out the skin, as this lens shows every single tiny flaw.
2. It's well corrected, so the usual faults of very fast primes are minimized (haloing, longitudinal chromatic abberation, etc.) and there's almost no distortion. Very well done.
3. It's slower to focus on my X Pro1 and XE1 bodies than either of the zooms -- more like the Fuji 35mm f/1.4 lens. But the focus is exceptionally accurate (which I find normal with the Fujis compared to the phase-detect systems in DSLRs.)
4. It's big -- larger than the 23/1.4 -- and on an X Pro 1 with a grip, this is starting to get kind of big for a "compact" camera system. But it does balance well.
5. Compared to my Canon 85mm f/1.2, it's of course smaller and lighter, and much less expensive. It allows the same amount of light through the lens (f/1.2) but there is some small difference in the depth of fielf characteristics, with the Canon offering more out-of-focus blur at the same subject distance. But in real life prints, the difference is small. (If you want to see all the arguments about this, there are plenty of places online to find them.)
