International Workers’ Day in Oslo, shot with the Fujinon 56mm f1.2
7 months ago

Finally got my back-ordered Fujinon 56mm f1.2 about a week ago. What a better way of testing this lens with some street portraits at the International Workers’ Day. I went f1,2 all day to see how the 56mm and XT-1 would hold up.

Thanks bensherman

i Wrote some words in my blog: http://kjetilkvienmadsen.wordpress.com/2014/05/01/international-workers-day-in-oslo-shot-with-the-fujinon-56mm-f1-2/

I would sum it up as:

  • Focus accuracy is very good.
  • Hunts sometimes in low contrast (As expected)
  • Sharpness wide open is really great (And i own a lot of other great glass like the Nikon 200 f2.0 for comparison)
  • Image quality is great, and i really like the bokeh

Good to know that..I am planning to buy one here in UK but there's a rumor that some copies have aperture ring that is not perfectly well aligned with the numbers (aperture). How is your copy?

Nice shooting. I checked out your blog too. The first image of the man holding the flag is definitely more striking in B&W than in color. Well done!

I am not convinced this usage of DOF makes sense, at lest to me. Iwould prefer to see more on  these pictures i.e. more DOF, people and object in focus and not out of focus. OOF does not add to these images anything.
