Sentiment Score 82%
Reviewers from cameralabs have found the following***:
When it comes to diffraction spikes, the XF 56mm f1.2 is clearly superior. For a second example, I photographed London’s Tower Bridge, again with both lenses from the same distance and closed to f16. Both lenses are pretty well-behaved in both regards, at least for the out-of-camera JPEGs. Keep reading for my final verdict or if you’d like to delve deeper, check out my outdoor resolution comparison on the quality page.

Pros
  • Smaller and lighter than XF 56mm f1.2
  • Better-looking diffraction spikes than before
  • Faster, quieter and much closer focusing
Cons
  • Small pincushion from XF 50mm f2
