Just How Great Is the Fujifilm XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR Lens?

Fujifilm has long had the XF 56mm f/1.2 R lens, which offers fantastic portrait lens quality and lots of shallow depth of field for bokeh fanatics. Now, the XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR is here, blowing past the f/1.2 lens with an even wider aperture. This excellent video review takes a look at the lens in a variety of situations and the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it. 

Coming to you from Andrew & Denae, this great video review takes a look at the new XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR lens. While the most notable feature is its crazily wide maximum aperture (which makes it the first ever f/1.0 mirrorless lens that also includes autofocus), the lens also comes with a lot of other features to improve its performance and image quality:

  • One aspherical element that reduces distortion and increases sharpness
  • Two extra-low dispersion elements that reduce chromatic aberrations and increase clarity
  • Super EBC coating that reduces flares and ghosting and increases contrast
  • DC autofocus motor for quicker autofocus in spite of large elements
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm to create smoother bokeh
  • Dust- and moisture-resistant design

Altogether, 50mm f/1.0 looks like a mightily impressive lens. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
