FUJIFILM XF 50mm f/2 Description

FUJIFILM XF 50mm f/2 FUJIFILM XF 50mm f/2offers a 76mm equivalent focal length to suit a variety of applications, including portraiture and still lifes. The lightweight design and bright f/2 maximum aperture benefit working in low-light conditions and also afford a high degree of control over depth of field for selective focus techniques. The optical design features one aspherical ED element, which controls distortion and color fringing for sharper, clearer results throughout the aperture range.  Complementing the optics is a stepping motor, along with an internal focusing design, which provides quick and especially quiet focusing performance. Additionally, the lens is weather-sealed to suit working in inclement conditions.

FUJIFILM XF 50mm f/2 Features

Prime short telephoto lens is designed for APS-C-format FUJIFILM X-mount mirrorless cameras and provides a 76mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/2 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also offers greater control over depth of field.
One aspherical extra-low dispersion element limits both spherical and chromatic aberrations in order to realize greater sharpness, clarity, and color accuracy.
Stepping motor, along with an internal focusing design, affords fast and quiet autofocus performance that benefits both stills and video applications.
The lens body incorporates weather sealing to protect against dust and moisture, and to enable worry-free use in inclement conditions and freezing temperatures as low as 14°F.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Autofocus Performance


One of the strongest features of the 50mm f/2 is its focus speed. In good light, this lens acquires focus blazingly fast and accurately. Even alternating focus between near and far subjects is not a challenge. In lower contrast lighting scenarios, focus acquisition takes a fraction of a second longer, but it is still extremely accurate and fast. I found that the lens sometimes hunted a bit when I was shooting on the street at night, or in dark indoor conditions. However, once the lens locked focus, it was very accurate.

During focusing, the motor is exceptionally silent! I found that if I was using the LCD, I could not hear the mechanism at all. It was only when the camera was up to my eye and I was using the EVF that I could detect a soft humming. Wedding photographers will find this a great feature when capturing candid moments.
