56 1.2 with 62mm filter size is CLEARLY pictured on the 1st page at this link

the lens is just below the letter X. I don't know how to capture the PDF page from my work computer to just copy the photo here but it is pretty clear

56/12 - my first thoughts are positive. 62mm filter size! This is going to be something. I am salivating looking at the lens! I think (hope) this is going to be that one epic portrait lens, for which photographers would buy a body just to use that lens, not the other way around.

Ok, I know it's supposed to be a 56/1.2 but the only image I saw in the link looks like a 56/1.4? :

Isn't this a 56mm f/1.4 with 58mm front thread diameter? (from the catalog)

Where's this 56/1.2 with 62mm filter thread?

Do you mean this image (on the right of the 10-24):

doesn't that say "SUPER EBC XF 56mm 1:1.4 R O58" ?
