New lenses are being released at a fast and furious pace. With the opportunity to try most of them, I found the XF56mm so much fun I use it any chance I can get.
Versatile, sharp and fast - it would be a shame to pigeon hole this as just a portrait lens. This is a great lens.
I took to the streets with my gal Janet and using various apertures, changed the bokeh as I opened up from F5.6 to F1.2. Having the clarity remain as the background melts away, created an interesting look. I recommend you give this lens a try if you have the opportunity!
Lens: Fujinon XF56 APD.
(Bokeh: the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens.)
With general outdoor images the 1.2 aperture helps isolate the subject.
