Fujifilm XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR Short Telephoto Prime Lens Summary

With over 80 years of experience in lens manufacture it’s no wonder that Fujifilm has created the fastest ever AF lens for their X-Series mirrorless cameras. The new Fujinon XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR prime lens boasts the brightest aperture AF lens currently available for any mirrorless system. The results achieved create stunningly soft and creamy bokeh with pin sharp focal planes typically associated with extremely high end portrait lenses of this kind. The optical design is composed of 12 elements in 9 groups, which includes 1 aspherical element and 2 ED elements. These help to reduce colour and spherical aberrations aside from at the very widest f/1 aperture where the clever design leaves spherical aberrations to enhance soft bokeh effects.

At f/1.2 the resolution is equivalent to the highly acclaimed XF 56mm f/1.2 and by f/2 vignetting is reduced to the equivalent of the XF 90mm f/2. This is a considerable optical achievement for Fujifilm and users can expect outstanding results throughout the range up to the maximum f/16.

The phase detect system works seamlessly at all apertures including with Eye and Face detect and manual focussing has been improved with 8x manual focus resolution.

Despite the ultra fast aperture the short telephoto lens remains reasonably compact at 103mm long, balancing well on X system bodies. The 845g. weight is solid and reassuring in the hand, serving as a reminder of the quality the XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR is able to render. The lens is dust and weather sealed in 11 places and works down to -10 degrees C for outdoor use throughout the seasons.

Our Verdict

The Fujifilm XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR lens is quite simply a stunning portrait lens for X-system users. Holding the title for the fastest aperture AF lens for any system is quite the accolade and the autofocus system as well as optics deliver across all fronts. Bokeh is extremely pleasing when stopped down to the brightest apertures and focus can be acquired quickly and efficiently thanks to full AF compatibility with Eye and Face detect as well as manually if required.

The lens is weather sealed and performs well even in extreme conditions, opening up possibilities for photographers who work in a number of genres from street photography, to weddings and portraits or documentary. Low light situations are no match for this fast prime option and we expect many advanced enthusiasts and professional photographers to add this to their equipment list.

We Love

  • Fastest aperture AF lens for any mirrorless system, which provides sublime bokeh for portraits
  • Improved manual focus abilities for capturing the subject even with extremely thin focal planes
  • Fast and accurate AF compatibility throughout the aperture range even in low light
  • Weather and dust sealed for outdoor shooting during any weather
  • Solid, well constructed lens which feels secure in the hand
