The XF 50mm F1.0 has a smaller, lighter weight than the previously disclosed XF 33mm F1.0 R WR. According to Fuji official, the XF 50mm F1.0 will be 33% smaller than the XF 33mm F1.0 R WR and the weight will be as low as 900g. In addition, the XF 50mm F1.0 also cancels the design of the foot ring on the XF 33mm F1.0 R WR. After the volume is reduced, the original function button on the lens is also cancelled, but the aperture ring commonly seen on the Fuji lens is retained.
▲ SIGMA 35mm F1.2 DG DN
As a lens for a non-reverse body, 900g is really heavy. However, before seeing Sigma also released 35mm F1.2 DG DN without anti-lens, the weight of this Sigma large aperture fixed focus also reached 1090g. Although there are no anti-lens, in order to achieve large aperture and high image quality, the volume and weight of the anti-lens is believed to be closely aligned with the SLR lens.
Fuji said at the press conference that the development turned to 50mm F1.2 is actually related to the blur effect, they hope that through this lens, help users to shoot higher quality blur effect.
Of course, Fuji’s development of a 50mm large aperture lens may also be relevant to the market.
