Bokeh Monster: A Review of the Fuji XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR Lens

Fuji’s new XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR lens is one of their most ambitious to date, and it brings with it the promise of ultimate portraits, with buttery smooth bokeh and very narrow depth of field. How does it hold up in practice? This fantastic video review shows the kind of images you can create with this unique lens.

Coming to you from Julia Trotti, this great video takes a look at the new Fuji XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR lens. Of course, the headline feature is that extreme maximum aperture, but along with that, you also get the following:

  • One aspherical element for reduced distortion and increased sharpness
  • Two extra-low dispersion elements for reduced chromatic aberrations and increased clarity
  • Super EBC coating for reduced flares and ghosting and increased contrast
  • DC autofocus motor 
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh
  • Weather-resistant design with 11 separate seals to protect the lens from dust and moisture

Certainly, the XF 50mm f/1.0 R WR might be overkill for a lot of applications, but for any photographer looking for the superlative portrait lens from Fuji or who loves buttery smooth bokeh, it looks to be a winning option. Check out the video above for Trotti’s full thoughts.
