XF56mm f1.2 vs Rokkor 50mm f1.4 ?
11 months ago

There's a huge amount of discussion regarding the new XF56mm lens which is a whopping £1000

Aside from the fact that it's faster, will embed the aperture setting in the exif data, it's autofocus, and will be a modern design suited to the X system cameras, I'm struggling to see the benefit of paying 20x what I paid for the Rokkor that took the picture below ?
