When Fujifilm started to release the newest f/1.4 lens trinity, they all got the weather sealing, a new optical design to resolve the 40MP of the X-H2 and X-T5 and they also got a linear motor for blazing fast autofocus.
Well, according to our trusted sources, the Fujinon XF56mmF1.2 II will follow that path, but not completely.
We got told this by trusted sources:
- weather resistant
- bigger than the original XF56mmF1.2 R (as you can see in the size comparison here)
- filter size 67mm
- no linear motor
So what the XF56mmF1.2 II will lack over the the latest f/1.4 lenses is the linear motor.
We remind you that the current version uses DC coreless motor (the smallest motor). Stepping motors are better but bigger. So I wonder (not rumor) if this version has a stepping motor.
Before we make any judgment on AF, let’s wait for the real world reports, which will all drop on September 8 and we will cover live here on FujiRumors
