The 56mm F/1.2

I’m pretty late to the party, but I got the Fuji 56mm F/1.2. I first used it at Zack Arias’s workshop a few weeks ago. He let me try it, and I loved it.

I clung to my 60mm because I thought it was good enough, but I didn’t realize how much better the AF was with the 56mm. Now the 56mm shares a lot of time with my 35mm on my Fuji X-T1. When I’m outdoors, I use it 90% of the time. I love the perspective of the 56mm on the APSC sensor. Plus, I’m a bokeh lover so the 1.2 aperture melts away the background.

I still kept the 60mm because of its macro abilities. If I want a tight face shot, I would reach for my 60mm. But I wouldn’t use it much except for beauty photography. However, I would probably sell the 60mm when 90mm comes out. I’ll just use that plus the macro tubes for my tight face shots.

Here are some of my 56mm images:
