Fujifilm Announces the FUJINON XF 56mm F1.2 R, a Premium Portrait Lens—Available for Pre-Order at B&H Photo Video

FUJIFILM announced today the new FUJINON XF 56mm F1.2 R, a premium portrait lens with an 85mm equivalent, which fits all FUJIFILM X-Series interchangeable lens cameras.

NYC, NY (PRWEB) January 06, 2014

The Fujifilm FUJINON XF 56mm F1.2 R lens is lightweight, and less than half the size of an equivalent full-frame camera lens, for easy and comfortable use. The XF 56mm F1.2 R also has a metal aperture ring with a premium quality feel, and offers incredible speed and silence in the studio, perfect for the professional portrait photographer. The aperture ring on the XF 56mm F1.2 R is designed to give users a satisfying ‘click’ between f-stops, with a perfectly-torqued focusing ring for precise adjustments.

The FUJINON XF 56mm F1.2 R lens has a new optical design that features 11 elements in 8 groups, and includes two ED (extra low-dispersion) elements and one double-sided aspherical element, plus four elements with a convex surface facing the subject, which combine to reduce spherical and chromatic aberrations for superior images.

  • FUJIFILM X-Mount is compatible with all FUJIFILM interchangeable system cameras
  • HT-EBC (High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating) multi-layer coating to minimize ghosting and flare
  • Additional newly-developed coating added to the reverse side of the front lens to further reduce the ghosting that typically occurs when using deep concave lenses
  • Enhanced resolving power at all apertures, when used with an X-series camera that incorporates a Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO) function
  • Seven-blade aperture diaphragm, which helps create smooth and round bokeh effects
  • Minimum working distance of 70cm
  • Inner focusing system which moves small elements in the middle or at the rear of the lens, while keeping the large front elements stationary for high-speed AF

The bright Fujinon XF 56mm F1.2 R delivers extraordinary sharpness and speed for premium X-Series digital cameras. Read all about the Fujifilm XF 56mm F1.2 http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1021630-REG/fujifilm_xf_56mm_f_1_2_r.html
