Unbelievable Bokeh

XF50mmF1.0 creates remarkable bokeh and is unmatched in finely controlling aberrations and maintaining crisp image detail. This creates an extraordinary balance between a subject and their background, a relationship that is sure to inspire creativity and help you make extraordinary portraits with a striking simplicity and an almost three-dimensional quality.

Express Yourself with Clear Intention

Of course, the magic of XF50mmF1.0 is not just limited to making images at its widest aperture. Stopping the lens’ aperture down results in increased depth-of-field, sharpness, and resolution. At F2, vignetting nearly disappears and bokeh becomes circular, allowing the expression of photos to be changed with a few clicks of the aperture ring.

Separation, Near and Far

Use the power of selective focus to keep a subject’s eyes sharp and make captivating close-up character studies, or use it in street or lifestyle settings to keep them the focus of your image. No matter how distracting the foreground and background elements are, with an angle of view equivalent to 75mm in 35mm format, unrivalled control over depth-of-field, and outstanding sharpness at the point of focus, XF50mmF1.0 lets you put the spotlight on your subject, whatever role they’re playing in the scene.

Advanced Autofocus for Ultimate Precision

When making pictures with such a shallow depth-of-field, even the slightest error in focus can shift the sharpness away from the heart of the image. But XF50mmF1.0 isn't like other lenses. Combined with X Series cameras’ high-precision autofocus systems, which also include Face and Eye Detection AF, image makers can harness the creative power of this advanced lens with confidence and ease.

Using the Weather to Inspire You

Creativity shouldn’t have to end when the sun goes down or rain clouds gather. With its weather-resistant construction, XF50mmF1.0 helps you transform the glow of lights reflecting on the wet pavements and the twinkle of raindrops into beautiful twinkling bokeh and washes of color that enrich the darkness. Also sealed against dust and humidity, and able to operate in temperatures as low as 14°F (-10°C), XF50mmF1.0 can keep you in the creative groove and make unique images in the toughest environments.

Photographers’ Voice

  • A lens with the ‘special’ unexplained quality

    There are lenses that have the special unexplained quality where they just make things look beautiful and sometimes better than real life. Those are the lenses you really rely on and keep going back to.

  • Enhances photographer’s performance to the next level

    XF50mmF1.0 opens the gate to the unknown. Just like how the latest technologies used for the track shoes assist athletes to break the world records, I believe that this lens has the similar capability and potential to enhance photographer's performance to the next level.

  • Faster shutter speed and lower ISO, even under low light

    XF50mmF1 allowed me to use faster shutter speed and lower ISO even under low light, guaranteeing better image quality. The lens also has a very fast focus speed, which makes it suitable for many kinds of shooting styles, including street snaps and commercial filming in the studio.
