First of all let me make it clear, I’m not a gear-review-kind-of-guy. I’m just posting this because I have decided to make the switch from Canon over to Fuji and one thing I thought I might miss is shooting with my Canon 50mm f1.2 lens. It is a beautiful lens and I love the shallow depth of field, and I wasn’t quite sure about the quality of the bokeh of the Fuji lenses.
Anyway, as I stated in the previous post, the 56mm f1.2 lens arrived on Tuesday and within about 3 shots I knew I was definitely switching to Fuji, and would not be missing the Canon 50mm 1.2.
The images that the 56mm, along with my Fuji X-T1 produce are stunning, and shooting with that combination just makes me smile. I just wanted to share a few shots that I’ve taken with that lens. With the exception of being resized in Lightroom, these are the JPEG files straight from the camera – no edits. The all were shot with the Velvia – vivid film simulation, and all shot wide open at f1.2. A couple of them were in very low light at high ISO.
