Fujifilm has just announced a new lens for their X-series of mirrorless cameras and it features breathtaking f/1.0 aperture. This makes it the world’s fastest autofocus lens.
The XF 50mm f/1.0 WR offers 75mm-equivalent field of view, making it a great option for portrait photography. As expected, this lens is capable of delivering incredibly smooth and creamy bokeh.
The build quality of the new lens is superb and it also weather sealed. It is heavy, however. The XF 50mm f/1.0 weighs 845 grams or about 1.9 pounds! It should start shipping in late September with the retail price of $1,499.95.
