CES 2014: Fuji set to debut £1,000 portrait lens

January 6, 2014

The £999.99 newcomer features 11 elements in eight groups and includes two ED elements, plus a double-sided aspherical element.

‘Using the XF56mm and selecting one of two Pro Negative modes from the Film Simulation menu on the camera body will ensure users can capture beautiful portraits with rich tonal gradations reminiscent of images from film cameras,’ claimed Fuji in a statement.

Features include an inner-focus mechanism and DC coreless motor to help boost AF responsiveness, particularly when used with a camera that supports phase-detection AF.
