Hi all, I just picked up a new copy of the 56mm WR to replace my R version and I'm noticing that the lens is louder than the old one by quite a bit. I was under the impression the newer one should be less noisy based on this fuji marketing bit: "an added feature of the bearing mechanism successfully minimizes friction that may arise when the DC motor is driving lens elements, to nearly eliminate motor noise" It's not a huge deal for me but I just wanted to check with other owners of this lens...

I'm currently considering picking up an XH-1 or an XT-3. This decision is apparently one of the more difficult ones... The pros of the XH-1 are IBIS, bigger grip, professional look, and smooth shutter; the pros of the XT-3 are improved autofocus, better video capabilities, higher burst rate, and a "better" sensor.  I'm leaning heavily towards getting the XH-1 as the price is much more attractive than that of the XT-3, but many people say that the XT-3 is much more future-proof and it would be...

I've always eyed the 56mm f/1.2 and have expected to get it for my collection.  However, recently I have been comparing the 90mm f/2 as well.  I currently own the XF 50mm f/2.  So my debate was if the 56mm would really benefit me, since I have a very similar focal length.  Yes I know the rendering of the 56mm is different than the 50, but I'm not sure if it will be a big enough difference. I really want a outstanding portrait lens.  I don't expect to use it in inclement weather, so lack of WR...

The fastest lenses I have are the F2 primes: 23mm, 35mm, and 50mm. My primary use for each lens is street photography or indoor concert photography in small venues. The XF 50mm F2 has been useful for both street portraits and concert photography, but I would like to get a lens that would provide more bokeh for general portrait use and be better for low light environments. I was planning to pick up an XF 56mm F1.2, but I have an opportunity to purchase an XF 50mm F1 for a couple of hundred...

I purchased this lens on craigslist the other day. It is an impressive lens to look at. Staring down the barrel, it is easy notice the wide aperture, especially when the only other prime I have for comparison is the 23 f/1.4. It's only a half stop faster but at that f number, it correlates to a significant increase in diameter. The bokeh looks great at its 85mm equivalent focal length. But... The largest aperture setting, f/1.2, doesn't appear to have any effect on the out of focus area of...

I have 56/1.2 lens. However, Sometimes I need longer lens but rarely use them. Is it worth to get 2X TC which may combine with 56/1.2 may still have good quality a enough aperture? (I know 90nn is great, but it's quite expensive and heavy) It may be a bad combination, however, 2X TC can be used with other lens. Did anybody try 2X TC with prime lens? Thanks.

Hey everyone it’s my first time posting here. I recently got my first camera in the X-T30 and one of the lenses I got for it is the XF 56mm f1.2. I took some test shots and noticed some chromatic aberration at f1.2, as seen below on the keyboard. Is this with acceptable limits or did I get a lemon?

Hello experienced professionals! I need an advice to my first body and lenses for amateur family photographs. Since 2012 I was using NIKON FF D600 with a lot of primes and zooms, but sold all of them except Tamron 24-70/2.8 VC , Nikon 85mm f/1.8 G and a SB800 flash … until I realized that they are too heavy to carry around, can’t make a decent video and I just do not use them as often as I wish. So I decided that now it’s the right moment to change the gear for something lighter and more...

Hello Guys, I know this has been asked countless times. But hear me out. Recently I have been introduced to this beautiful Photography world and decided to buy my own gear. So I made some research, first decided to buy a mirrorless system as it is compact. Then lessened my choices to <Fuji X-T30 with XF56 F1.2 and eventually XF23mmF2> and <Sony A6400 with Sigma 56mm 1.4 and 30mm 1.8> For money wise, they are almost the same. I am quite new to photography and I will mostly do Portrait...

Moving over from Canon to Fujifilm next week (just have the last of my Canon lenses to sell first), and am purchasing an X-T20 as it seems to be a good all rounder as my first foray into a mirrorless system. Prefer my primes, so am thinking to just by a Body only (and skip the 18-55mm) and start off with a 35mm F2, but what I do for my next lens has me reading over 40 different articles/forums.  I'm also very tempted to go down the route of the WRF2, 1. Because they are lightweight 2. They...
