I pre-ordered the new Fujifilm 56mm F1.2 R WR & X-H2. Here are some upcoming video ideas.

Hi everyone, today I want to brainstorm some content ideas I am planning for the upcoming new 56mm F1.2 R WR & the new X-H2. I just did a pre-order yesterday, it should start shipping around the first week of October.

Key Points

  • Upcoming comparison ideas

  • Lenses comparison ideas using 56mm F1.2 R WR

  • Camera comparison ideas using X-H2

Upcoming Video Comparison Ideas

New 56mm F1.2 R WR vs Old 56mm F1.2 R (Using new X-H2 or X-T4)

I want to see how the new lens improves in terms of the sharpness and auto focusing speed. I have been using the old 56mm F1.2 R for many years, the auto focusing was decent, not the fastest in the XF line-up. I am curious what are the improvements on the new X-Trans 5 sensor in X-H2 as well as putting the new 56mm F1.2 R WR on the X-T4 body to see if there is any improvements on the old sensor.

New 56mm F1.2 R WR vs XF50mm F1.0 WR (using X-H2)

For this one, I mainly want to find out the focusing speed since XF50mm F1.0 WR is relatively new technology. How much sharper from the new 56mm F1.2 R WR. I will also want to test the XF50mm F1.0 WR lens on the X-H2 body to see how's the new focusing algorithm working on the XF50mm F1.0 WR.

New 56mm F1.2 R WR vs XF90mm F2 WR

XF90mm F2 WR is one of the sharpest lenses in Fujifilm lineup. I want to check how's the new 56mm F1.2 R WR's image quality stack up against the XF90mm F2 WR.

Fujifilm X-H2 vs Fujifilm X-T4 with new 56mm F1.2 R WR or Other Fujifilm lenses

For this one, I will mainly focus on the camera body instead of the lenses. How are the sensors different from each other. On the other hand, I want to know is the color improved in X-H2? The default color in the X-T4 sensor has a magenta lean. Will the magenta tone go away?

Fujifilm X-H2 vs Fujifilm X-S10 with new 56mm F1.2 R WR

This one is similar comparison with X-T4. I just want to compare these two cameras in terms of the image quality since X-S10 is like half the price of X-H2. X-S10 is very good for entry level users with ibis capabilities.

Fujifilm X-H2 vs Other Brands' 85mm portrait equivalent lenses

Finally, I would also like to test the new X-H2 against other cameras I have just to see how the quality stacks up against other full frame mirrorless.

  1. Fujifilm X-H2 56mm F1.2 R WR vs Canon R6 RF 85mm F2

  2. Fujifilm X-H2 56mm F1.2 R WR vs Sony A7iii FE85mm F1.8

  3. Fujifilm X-H2 56mm F1.2 R WR vs Nikon Z5 85mm F1.8 S

In summary, I am planning this list in preparation of the New 56mm F1.2 R WR and X-H2 arrival. I have pre-ordered the items in B&H Photos yesterday and it should arrive toward the beginning of October if the supply chain doesn't have issues. If it arrives the first week of October, I will have the new video content at the 2nd and 3rd week of October. Stay tuned!

Thanks for reading :) More photos will be uploaded in my Instagram account: @caliallstaring.
