Mike’s detailed test and comparison here: Tested! Fujinon XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR
New bokeh experience
The smooth outlines and the creamy bokeh of the XF50mmF1.0 R WR is not like any other F1.0 lens you know. Finely controlling aberrations and maintaining crisp sharp edges means the lens creates an extraordinary balance of backgrounds and foregrounds. Witnessing this well designed contrast will fascinate and inspire your creativity.
Express yourself like never before
The magic of the XF50mmF1.0 R WR is not limited when used fully open at F1.0. The images gradually gain sharpness and resolution as you rotate the aperture ring. At F2, the vignetting completely disappears and the circle bokeh is perfectly shaped. The images you can achieve change their expression every 1/3 step. The discrete aperture values take you to a new world of expression.
The angle of view equivalent to 76mm in 35mm format and when combined with the outstanding image quality, it allows you to frame the world in a different way. The XF50mmF1.0 R WR brings spotlight to your images by separating the subject, foreground and background regardless of the distance. However, the foregrounds and backgrounds are just as essential in the frame as a beautiful bokeh, and help you realize the true meaning of “focus”.
Auto focus breeds confidence
When using a lens with a shallow depth of field, even the slightest mistake is not forgiven. Using lenses at F1.0 with such precision requires users to have some patience. The XF50mmF1.0 R WR isn’t like normal F1.0 lenses. By using the advantages of the mirrorless system, the lens utilizes the high precision using the auto focus of the camera, including face and eye autofocus and phase detection pixels. Even without patience you can have full control with this highly advanced lens.
