The lens has a maximum aperture of F1.2 making it the world’s brightest autofocus lens for digital cameras with an APS-C sensor. In addition, the new apodizing filter makes it the perfect choice for portraits, with every strand of hair visible and a unique bokeh effect. The built-in APD filter, the pinnacle of Fujifilm’s nanotechnology, produces smoother bokeh, making the subject stand out distinctly from the background, and enhances creativity for portraits and a wide range of other subjects. Plus it’s quick to use thanks to the high-speed, quiet autofocus.
