Another ok-not-great review of the 50mm f/1.0
2

Chris and Jordan have posted their look at this lens. Between this and Ken Wheeler’s review, I expect some will be cancelling their pre-orders.

https://m.dpreview.com/videos/3680578709/dpreview-tv-fujifilm-50mm-f1-0-review

Pros:

- Very smooth, clean bokeh with nice transitions

- No flare shooting backlit portraits

- Essentially zero focus breathing

Cons

- Peak sharpness not until 2.8

- Cat’s eye bokeh balls until f/2.0

- Big, heavyish (though he says not too bad) and of course not a cheap lens

- Same MFD as 56 of .60m, not very close..

Do these have you changing your mind about pre-ordering this lens?
