Overseas retailers have marked the Fujinon XF 56mm F1.2 R as discontinued so it is likely that Fujifilm has decided to stop producing the Fujinon XF 56mm f1.2 R in favor of producing more Fujinon XF 56mm f/1.2 R WR Mark II lenses which are a bit chunkier and designed for higher resolution. I am still using the Fujinon XF56mm f/1.2 R because I prefer its compact size, but I may pick up a Fujinon XF56mm f/1.2 R WR Mark II in the future if I feel that resolving power has become an issue.

Fujifilm also produces a specialized version of this lens based on the original design with improved bokeh, the Fujinon XF 56mm f1.2 R APD, that still hasn’t been discontinued, but it is more expensive and more niche since the improved bokeh loses some light transmission to enhance the bokeh. So if you want the more compact Fujinon XF56mm f/1.2 R you should buy one while you can or get the Fujinon XF56mm f1.2 R APD edition.
