xf56mm R vs xf56mm WR - difference in actual usage (AF/Hunting)?
4

I realize not a lot of people have the new lense yet, but does anyone out there have any experience with both lenses and feel that there are a marked improvement in AF and less hunting with the new 56mm lense?

I sold my XF56mm mainly because that I was tired with it hunting in low light, and replaced it with a Voigtlander 50mm F1.2 - ie manual focus instead. I am happy with the replacement lense, but there are moments where I realize that AF would be a big plus. I have a chance to buy a one year old version of the old lense for a pretty good price, or the new one for about 2,5x as much.

I don't expect huge improvements in IQ, it's really mostly the AF that I question. Pricewise I obviously should just go for the second hand one, since it is a lot cheaper, but if I was to buy the 56mm WR it would be used for years into the future. I used my old XF56mm for about 8 years before I sold it.
