• The XF50mmF1.0 R WR is an ultra-fast mid-telephoto prime lens with the focal length of 50mm (equivalent to 76mm in the 35mm film format) and a maximum aperture of F1.0. The fastest interchangeable lens Fujifilm has ever produced, it achieves incomparable resolving power thanks to its large-diameter design, which also produces beautiful bokeh, rendering backgrounds out of focus with a rich smoothness. The lens can also be stopped down for edge-to-edge sharpness, adding versatility to the way it can be used to make images.
• The inclusion of a DC autofocus motor into XF50mmF1.0 allows for quick and accurate autofocus even when images are being made at the maximum F1.0 aperture. Since this can result in an extremely shallow depth of field, the lens also utilises X Series cameras’ Face / Eye AF function to achieve critical focus when making portraits, which is something that is quite difficult to achieve when focusing manually.
• For times when manual focus is required, such as recording video, the manual focus ring provides 120 degrees of rotation to allow for precise, enhanced control and quick travel through the focus range to infinity. Lastly, despite being a large-diameter F1.0 lens, its weight, size and weather-sealing make it a practical choice for any professional image maker.

1) Achieve an incredibly shallow depth-of-field
The XF50mmF1.0 R WR consists of 12 lens elements in nine groups and also contains one aspherical element and two ED elements to achieve optimum control of spherical aberration. Used at or near to its maximum F1.0 aperture, XF50mmF1.0 R WR can produce an astonishingly narrow depth-of-field. Its precision-engineered, rounded diaphragm produces large, smooth bokeh for a professional look, allowing photographers to create portraits with a striking simplicity and an almost three-dimensional quality with wonderful edge-to-edge sharpness. Photographers can use this new power in selective focus to keep only the subject’s eyes in focus and make captivating close-up character studies. But it’s not just for portraits. Take this lens out onto the street or into a lifestyle session and one can turn cluttered locations into clean backdrops with unrivaled subject separation.
