Among Fuji X photographers, there is one lens everyone swears to when doing portrait photography, and that’s the FujiFilm 56mm 1.2.
I’ve owned this lens for 3 years and I can’t recommend it enough.
The photos come out sharp, image quality is excellent and the 1.2 aperture gives you a beautiful bokeh that works great in low-light situations as well.
Get the FujiFilm 56mm 1.2 on Amazon.
- The shallow depth of field.
It’s not a cheap lens. The portrait lens goes for 999 dollars on Amazon – and Fujifilm is not known for making big discounts on its lenses.
Honestly, I think it’s a fair price. It’s a high-quality prime lens.

When I do my street photography, I usually use the 35mm 1.4 or the 56mm 1.2. I know the 84 equivalent focal length isn’t that common for street photos, but I really enjoy using this lens for street photography as well.
Low Light Performance
Because of the 1.2 aperture, this lens does really well in night photography.
Whether this 56mm fuji lens is for you, can only you decide.
But it’s the most fun lens I’ve ever shot with and to me that matters a lot. The more fun you’re having taking pictures, the more pictures you’ll take.
