For the world’s supposed first f/1.0 autofocus lens for mirrorless cameras, I was stoked to try out this incredible new lens from the camera-master, Fuji. This lens brings in more light than previous XF lenses, making this bad boy a creamy bokeh dream for shooting portraits.
You know me, I love Fuji. This camera brand is no stranger to incredible JPEGs straight from the sensor’s source, making it easy for edits on the fly. The flip-up screen is truly a game changer for those who wish to shoot from the hip while capturing the streets. When I placed this gorgeous lens on my camera, I immediately fell in love with the results. As an avid portrait maker, I couldn’t help but gloat at the creamy bokeh behind my subject’s body.
What We Love:
The Depth of Field Is Otherworldly
The XF50mm F1.0 R WR consists of 12 lens elements, making this lens a technical masterpiece for bokeh vibes.
Its tack sharp ability to focus upon even the most miniscule of details makes this a winner in my book.
Great In Low-Light
Even when the sun is low and the clouds are in, the camera hardly struggles against extremely low light conditions.

Its precision-engineered, rounded diaphragm produces large, smooth bokeh for a professional look, allowing you to create portraits with striking simplicity and an almost three-dimensional quality.

For this, XF50mmF1.0 R WR uses 120º of rotation in its focusing ring to let you focus manually without error –and achieve accurate focus when using your X Series camera’s Focus Peaking and Focus Assist modes.
