XF56mm 1.2 - First impressions

So, having impulsively bought this lens, I’ve just taken it for a little test run and here are my initial observations:

  • Size actually isn’t as much of an issue on the street as I thought. Yes it’s relatively heavy compared to the f2 lenses but actually doesn’t bother me.
  • Balances nicely on the X-Pro2
  • Focus speed is sufficient, but certainly hunts at times. Not yet tested in low light. Autofocus is quite loud...
  • IQ looks great at first glance. Won’t be pixel peeping but more than enough sharpness for me!
  • Bokeh is v pleasant.

I will hopefully do a full review once I’ve had more chance to shoot with it.

Here are a few samples from evening walk:
