Fujifilm 56mm f1. Hi everyone, wondering if anyone has owned both of these lenses. Looking for a portrait lens for outside of pictures of my daughter a toddler.

Basically everyday pictures of my daughter playing at the playground or standing in high grass fields. Wondering if the bokeh is good enough on the 50mm f2 and if I can still get separation with her whole body in the shot. Any advice is greatly appreciated as I am an amateur. I currently own a XT2 with f2. ArjayJul 4, The 56mm's long hood will make it harder for her to lick the front element, whereas the 50mm's weatherproofing will help the lens survive the inevitable spills and splashes.

Do you want a lens like your 16 or like your 23? I have both and the My guess is you'll pick the I own both, but the 50 f2 get more use because it is much smaller and lighter. Most of my photography is travel related, so small and light is important. The Fujicron" trilogy of the 23, 35 and 50 is perfect for my travels. I add the to complete my travel kit along with the X-Pro2 and X-T2 bodies. The 56 f1. I use this lens for infrequent portraits or when low light speed is needed.

Both produce incredibly sharp images. If I could only have one, it would be the 50 f2. Regards, Bud James Please login or register to view links.

Bud JamesJul 4, Bearing in mind the desire to achieve separation between subject and background, the best bet is the 56mm. I used to own one and will probably get one again one day and think it is a superb lens which can be used wide open with reasonable confidence.

My hesitation is because at 1. You have a child you want to photograph, they often don't keep still when you want them to, so shooting at f1. Bearing in mind what I said in the previous paragraph, do you really need f1.My reasons being:. I can't comment on the difference as I only have the 56mm and I use it for wedding portraits. I love the extra light it gains. There are so many threads on people discussing these two lenses and some say the 50mm is sharper.

All I can say is that my 56mm is bloody sharp, it focuses quick enough for me in low light at weddings and renders very well. If its for portraits then a longer lens might also be best?

Maybe consider the 90mm? I really do like the 56mm but its almost double the price of the 50mm where I'm from so I'm finding it hard to justify the price. So it does appear that the 50mm is better overall, especially at the edges. I have the 56mm and have no complaints. How is the bokeh on the 50mm? Right now the only thing tipping things in favour for the 56mm for me at least is the focal length.

Portraits look nicer with a longer length - but I'm thinking I can just take a step back and crop in with the 50mm - I won't get the same resolution but it will get the job done in half the price. I have the 56 and while it is a very special lens, it has a number of shortcomings which have lead me to buy the 50 as well:. I see it now as more of a studio lens, or a lens to be used in similar controlled and easy environments. It does create a wonderful look, very different in aesthetics from the I like the look of photos shot with the 50 as well, they are just different.

I love the wider fujicrons, fast to use, sharp and punchy results and small, light and robust enough to take them everywhere- trekking, cycling, a night out.

They also make the camera look less threatening than the huge black eye of the The sky is full of holes that let the rain get in, the holes are very small - that's why the rain is thin. Spike Milligan. Writer, comedian, poet, Goon. The 50 and the 56 are quite different lenses each with their own strengths and uses, both are excellent. If possible, try to test drive. I have and love both lenses.

You are absolutely OK in using the 50 F2 as a portrait lens and it is perfectly sensible to prefer it for travel and other uses one could mention. It seems natural to compare the 50 and 56, but it is not really good to do so. Apples and oranges. The 56 is in a class of its own at F1. The 56, like the 16 and 90, are also Fuji lenses that have that special "magical" and "micro-contrast" quality that some photographers, like myself, claim from time to time.

The 56 is one of the best portrait lenses in the world. The 50 is outstanding too in so many ways. But no, it does not have better IQ or sharpness than the I just wanted to share some extra food for thought -- pfb links. Thank you and kindest regards. Short answer, no. I have both and I find the rendering of the 56 much more pleasing than the 50 and the 50 is slow f2 is slow on an APS-C camera so less flexible.

I will often carry my 50 in the bag with my Pro2 in case I find a street venue where I have a lot of room and the 56 is a bit longer and would require more room.As I now have a Fuji lens to cover my mm needs, I decided that this month to only take my Fujis. Out of all weddings I shoot, I decided this when the wedding was over 3 hours away. So there was no chance of me nipping home during dinner in an emergency.

For me, this was my final test for Fuji. During the entire wedding, around 12 hours, there was only 2 issues I encountered with the X-T1 and X-E2. First, my tools. As you can see from the list above, this is no light kit. Below are 2 screen shots from my Lightroom catalogue. Both of them show how many shots I had taken with each body and lens throughout the entire day when I had selected the images to import.

First is the screen shot of all imported images that I had selected from the entire day. Second is the screen shot of all final edited images, which I provided the couple with. As you can see, and exactly what I expected, my most used lenses were the 23mm and 56mm, the equivalent of 35mm and 85mm. They were my most used lenses, due to how I shoot, and having shot with a 35mm and 85mm for the majority of my photography career.

Most of my shots I pre visualise either at 35mm or 85mm, then for those times I need wider or longer, I have the other lenses to fill those spots. Both the X-T1 and X-E2 performed flawlessly excluding my 2 gripes with Fuji, mentioned further into the article.

In controlled test conditions, the X-T1 will out perform the X-E2 regarding focusing, but in real world usage in good light, both felt equally as good as the other. Indoors I used flash on Manual after the ceremonyas no TTL available from 3rd party flashes, except the tiny under powered Nissin i40 i40 Review coming soon.

Outdoors I used available light only, until I shot the portrait shots after the ceremony. During the ceremony, the only lens to miss focus a couple of times thankfully not any important moment was the 56mm. This only happened when the backlighting increased, which has been mentioned by others before. The one area I assumed both bodies would have struggled slightly is when the bridesmaids and bride were walking down the isle.

I opted for single focus as in my experience so far, both bodies can lock focus quick enough and capture the moving subject a lot more accurately that continuous focus can.

Continuous focus works great on the X-T1 after firmware 4. As I said, I expected them to struggle slightly, but both performed as good as I could have hoped, not missing 1 shot due to miss focus or focus hunting.

A huge upside, in fact, a huge positive for the way I shoot with Fuji, is the processing time. How much time I spend on processing files after the shoot was so much less than when I was on Canon.

With this, only having a couple of hours spare a day, sometimes less, it can take me a few weeks, maybe longer to have all images taken on Canon, processed and edited. I was so happy with the results from the X-T1 and X-E2 after applying the Classic Chrome film simulation, I only needed to make minor adjustments.

So in short, as far as capturing an image, capturing moments, and producing results the couple had paid for, both bodies and all lenses did their job very well, as well as any DSLR.

Assuming you have enough experience with your Fuji body and lenses, and know their strengths and weaknesses, you will come to the same conclusion.The other lenses being the 35mm F2 and the 23mm F2 of course.

When I first received the lens, I popped it onto my X-T2 and snapped a couple of quick shots of my crazy whippet and of my daughter as we played a game of chess together.

In comparison to its rather more noisy bigger brother, the Fujifilm 50mm F2 is so snappy. Whilst I really love my 56mm F1. I nearly always have a camera kicking around. Would I have bothered taking a similar image, or even got a similar result, with the 56mm F1. Who knows. Sadly, the same can not be said for the 56mm 1. Far from it. I would normally use the 23mm 1. It gives me a slightly different viewpoint and also allows me to have more depth of field compared to the 23mm without the need to get so close.

I love that all street photographers ideas and visions are very different. And this, of course, is simply down to the size and weight of the lens. Whilst not a particularly great image aboveI think it demonstrates the potential of this lens as an option for medium distance focal length with a shallow depth of field.

Really, it depends on your need. Here in the UK, the venues are dark and the weather is often dingy.
