The article incorrectly states Fuji made the worlds first AF lens with an f/1.0 aperture.

Canon had one for years.

Thanks for the link...I haven't tried the big 50 but have the other 3 for now. I'll be selling the tiny 50 & the Viltrox, however you really can't go wrong with any of these lenses.

Thank you. I own some lenses they tested and I think their comparisons are relevant.

No he is not, he is right - Canon made 50mm f/1.0L USM lens way back in 1989, being the world's first full frame (DLSR) f/1.0 lens with autofocus.

But that is fine, because Fuji markets its 50mm f/1.0 lens as "world`s first mirrorless autofocus f/1.0 lens" (source[1]), anyway, and that is correct.

Very interesting. I just upgraded from the 50F2 to the XF 56.  Other previous reviews seem to say the 50F2 is the sharper lens.  This article finds the 50F2 sharper only at close distance..I wonder if this is why lenstip and optical limits found the 50 to be sharper? - are they testing only at close distances??  My personal experience at normal portrait distance is that my 56 is sharper below 2.8 (where I want to use them!) and they are very similar when stopped down.

Here's a review of that Canon f1 lens. The Fuji marketing department got you (and many others, don't feel bad) by adding the word, "mirrorless".

OP, great article. Easily the most comprehensive shootout of these lenses I've seen to date.
