Sean Reid Reviews of 56 mm f1.6 and Touit 50 mm f2.8 macro

His bottom line is that both lenses will yield results that will have you whistling through your teeth.  That is about as enthusiastic as Reid gets with anything.

However, he did note a lot of missed focus with the X-Pro , even with the latest firmware.  Less so, but not insignificant with the X-T1.  He said he used the center focusing spot.  When I got my 56 I tried it out on my mannequin focusing on the eye.  At f2 I also found a lot of missed focus.  However, when I switched to a focusing spot closer to what  I wanted the camera to focus on, no problem.  I used the lens on an outdoor portrait shoot that weekend, and the focus of every picture was spot on.
