Fujifilm XF 50mm f2.0 WR Reviewed vs 56mm f1.2

The difference in aperture and therefor lowlight and shallow depth of field is obvious and goes without saying.
I was more interested in their performance for street photography and for my style of aesthetics.

Pros 50mm:

  • Small and light (the 56mm needs at least an XT1 for balance imo)
  • Cheaper
  • Faster
  • Smaller filter needed

Pros 56mm:

  • f1.2
  • Mojo
  • Better filter size for video

Cons both:

  • Brittle metal in the rings
