With Fuji's more recent release of the newer XF 23mm F/2.0, the XF 35mm f/2.0, and now this XF 50mm F/2.0, the company has embarked on lenses that are far lighter and smaller than the ones first mentioned, and also include fast, silent, and more modern focusing mechanisms. They don't drink in the same amount of light as any of the F/1.2 models, as an F/1.2 aperture is really very open compared even to F/2.0, but F/2.0 is still considered a "fast" aperture: MANY other lenses on the market today only open to F/3.5. What Fuji has done is open up an entirely new line of "fast" lenses that are lighter, smaller, and more modern in their focusing mechanisms, sacrificing the aperture (a necessity) to do so.
All three of these newer lenses are also fantastic, even when compared with their much more expensive Fuji brethren. They all take great photos, have good, what I would call "neutral" color palates, and work quickly and quietly with much less weight. And here's the thing: unless you have a special need for F/1.2 because you require a very emphasized background defocusing effect, the F/2.0 versions will easily fit the bill for your shooting, not only because they are good lenses, but because if you are shooting with a modern Fuji camera (like the X-T2, X-T3, or X-H1), you can shoot at previously unusable ISO numbers and get terrific shots. You'll do so, too, at a much lower price, due to the dramatically lower price of these newer lenses.
Especially to the point on this XF 50mm, I have to agree with the majority of other reviews: this lens is SHARP. And I mean, sharp to the point that it might be the sharpest lens currently in the Fuji arsenal. Pair it with the X-H1 camera, and you have a sharp, "fast" lens that has image stabilization provided by the camera. But it will turn out amazingly good shots with other non-OIS Fuji cameras, because, as I say, the lens is fast, and these cameras really let you crank up the ISO like never before. Case in point: last year, my wife and I were in Bordeaux, shooting inside a medieval church on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites, and it was so dark inside you could hardly see the hand in front of your face (the basilica is in serious need of renovation in spite of its architectural significance). A floodlight connected to a sensor would come on when someone came through the front door, but then would turn off again, plunging you into darkness. I was shooting with the X-T2 and the XF 10-24mm lens. I was able to crank up the ISO so high (I believe it was at 12,800) that I was able to get a complete set of interior photos that, when you see them on a computer screen, you would never know just how dark it really was in that building. And, mind you, that was with a lens that only opens up to F/4.0, which is miniscule compared to this 50mm lens here, which opens to F/2.0.
You'll likely be as surprised as I when you see just how sharp this lens shoots. Also, being an XF lens that is built in Japan, it shares the silky smooth manual focus ring and the superior, all-metal and glass construction of the XF series. Maddeningly, the aperture ring STILL has the tendency to let you knock it off of the auto setting onto F/16, so, like many Fuji lenses that bear this fault, you have to keep an eye on it, or you'll be shooting at the wrong aperture all day long. (Why can't Fuji ever seem to address this? What a simple problem to fix!) Nevertheless, this is a quality lens build akin to all the Japanese Fuji XF lenses, and you can feel it when you pick it up. Focusing is fast and completely silent. Oh, and did I mention that this is a "WR" lens? That means it is weather resistant, so if you are using it with a weather resistant Fuji camera, that's pretty nifty.
Can you shoot at 50mm? That's the question you have to ask yourself. If the field of view of this lens works for you (it is about a 75mm equivalent), this lens is definitely on the top of the short list. Yes, it comes with a crappy lens hood. Easily solved with a very inexpensive aftermarket hood if you can't deal with it. But if this field of view works for you, its a fantastic choice. Even at its retail price, it is something of a bargain; on sale, its a steal. Five "Fuji" Stars.

Build quality is no different than it's 23mm and 35mm siblings. The larger filter size is a bit of a bummer, but I step up all my glass to either 58mm or 67mm filters (other than a correct size clear protector). I do notice very brief hunting in lower light with moderate contrast objects, but this only seems to happen when focusing at 5 feet or closer.
Performance on my older X-E2 and X-Pro1 is comparable within the limitations of the older processors. The f2.0 trio of 23mm, 35mm, and 50mm make for a compact and capable grab-and-go kit with the X-E2.
I'm having a great time shooting the 50mm on an extension ring for close focus work. I'm favoring an 11mm extension for walking around in the garden. The slightly longer focal length helps with shadow control and lets me stay back slightly further from the subject - great for bugs and other critters.
While I have only tried random head shots I find the eyes / nose / ears representation natural with appropriate compression. Finding the entrance pupil (aka nodal point) for panoramic shooting was a breeze. I've tried several panoramic sets in the backyard and I think for far horizon scenes this will be an excellent lens choice.
The 50mm f2.0 is a lens worth investing in.

Image and picture quality.... AMAZING The images that come out of this lens are sharp, contrasty, and have great Bokeh you would be happy with the images from this lense!

My deciding factor was the AF speed. The newer XF lenses (the "Fujicron" as you might see online) are insanely fast, it's like you're spoiled by the speed.
If you're a bokeh freak or have big-expensive-lens syndrome, pick up the 56mm f/1.2. Otherwise (other than the ~10mm focal difference), this lens is superior.
Enfoque rápido y preciso en una Fujifilm X-T2.
El lente es ligero y pequeño, utiliza filtro 46 mm para darse una idea del tamaño.
Viene con un parasol de plástico de medio giro relativamente ancho, mas del doble de ancho que el que viene en el 35mm f2,
Lo único que no me gusta es el estuche que viene para el lente, es mas una tela cosida en plano, formando un sobre.
No he tomado fotografías con el pero no creo decepcionarme de la calidad.
