So I took the X-Pro 1 AF to the test with the new XF 56mm f1.2 lens. Will this portrait lens with razor thin DOF work on the X-Pro 1 AF in toug situations?

I took it out to the harbour, set it to f1.2 and 1/4000 to freeze the action and tried to focus on a kid that was chasing fast flying soap bubbles.

So once again, following my focus tips I managed to get about 90% hit rate, even with the XF 56mm at f1.2
