Pros: Very comfortable to work and hold on X-T body!
Cons: The only way to get impressive soft background is to use the lens at f1.2 ... BUT at f1.2 the lens is not sharp anywhere close to alternative lenses. It is also, just like any other half decent Fuji lenses 2x to 3x times more expensive than equivalent (or better) Canon, Nikon, Sony or Sigma lens !!!
Opinion: Finally I got to try out the lens. We were shooting : me with my X-T2 and 56 1.2 and my friend with Canon 6DII and Canon 85 f1,8. I discovered two things: 1) Fuji lens cannot get truly soft lovely background, unless you work very close to the model. And I was not comfortable being so close to our model, and 2) The lens is comfortable to use - not very big, not very heavy and has a comfortable shape to hold.
Then I swapped to Canon (6D) and my friend took my Fuji, and we agree : Fuji is much more comfortable to work with. BUT
And it is a huge BUT - Canon 85 f1.8 came out so much better - better color, better sharpness, better background separation. Everything, just everything related to image came so much better with Canon 85 1.8 lens !!! And let alone the Canon lens here costs EUR 300, the Fuji lens costs EUR 900 ...
Summary : an OK lens, but way to expensive, way way way too expensive - vs. comparable and better lenses from other brands.
So I am not buying this lens, waiting fro maybe Sigma will start making Fuji lenses this year.
PS After trying out 7 lenses from Fuji, I only liked 2 of them : The 2.8 16-50mm zoom, and the 23mm f1.4 lens. They are very expensive, but at least they are very good. My next camera, I go back to FF, and I am not looking back at Fuji ever. I do not care their camera bodies are fine, without good and reasonably priced lenses I cannot work.
The following opinions have been automatically translated with Google Translate.
Pros:Shadows , colors , detail , versatility, Af-s quite fast
Opinion:Lens for portraitists with Caravaggio's stamp and strongly vintage personality, very happy with the combination with my Xt4 that gives me a very performing and versatile combination. I reconnect to the counter mentioned the price: the price of the lens is high, but if we combine this lens with 35 xf and a body like xt4, overall we will find the economic advantage of the Fuji system. It offers you pro features at semi-pro prices from Sony, enviable for afc and eyes tracking but for its ecosystem no, even with the excellent Sigma optics.
Opinion:I got to try this lens recently, lens which is actually the alternative of the equivalent 85 1.8 in full format. The overall yield is excellent, such as bokeh, ac seal, ta vignette etc. Dimensions even not exaggerated considering that it is a 56mm 1.2 although for apsc; the real downside is af, especially with little light never hooking on the first shot, very slow; personally on fuji as a portrait lens I prefer the 90 f2, I think for a matter of taste, in any case good portrait lens.
Cons:Maybe Cost but in proportion to quality it is not then out of range.
Opinion:I find that wonderful. The quality of the blurry is exceptional. The clarity even at full opening is remarkable. Closing then becomes a real blade. A great portrait lens. Considering the opening the weight and size are contained and you carry behind an out-of-the-ordinary glass. I use it with the XT-1 and I feel great. My hands are big and with battery-grip I find the balance to be great. The construction is the typical Fuji therefore impeccable. I think it's a must-have!
Opinion:I want to start by the cons, the focus needs an update, it is not a splinter like the f2 and slightly noisy models; the price a bit high comparing it with other brands. Well now let's move on to PRO, chromatic rendering, sharpness and bokeh make this lens a legend, in portraits with a discreet light has nothing to envy to an 85 art mounted on FF.
