Is the XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR the Must-Have Portrait Lens for Fuji Photographers?

The XF 56mm f/1.2 R has long been known as the superlative portrait lens for Fujifilm shooters, but the company recently released the XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR, which pushes the boundaries of lens design all the more. This great video review takes a look at the lens and if its performance holds up to its impressive design.

Coming to you from Dustin Abbott, this excellent video review takes a look at the XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR lens. The head-turning feature of the lens is that crazy maximum aperture, of course, but in addition to that, it comes with a variety of features, including:

  • Single aspherical element for reduced distortion and increased sharpness
  • Two extra-low dispersion elements to reduce chromatic aberrations and increase clarity
  • Super EBC coating for reduction of flares and ghosting and increased contrast
  • DC autofocus motor for quick focus distance changes in spite of large elements
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh
  • Weather-resistant design for work in wet or dusty environments

Altogether, while it is not a perfect device, the XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR looks to be a fantastically capable lens for those who enjoy working with the most extreme designs out there. Check out the video above for Abbott’s full thoughts.
