Fujinon XF 27mm f/2.8 R WR
(From Fujifilm lens literature) Valhalla, N.Y., January 27, 2021 – FUJIFILM North America Corporation is pleased to announce FUJINON XF 27mm f/2.8 R WR lens, a new interchangeable lens for FUJIFILM X Series digital cameras, with availability anticipated in March 2021.
A thin, “pancake-style” prime lens, with a focal length of 27mm, XF 27mm f/2.8 provides a natural field of view close to that of the human eye, which makes it extremely suitable for a diverse range of photographic styles - from everyday general use to portraiture, street, and landscape photography.
“With its compact design, image-makers may find themselves using the lens frequently as a walkaround lens because of its exceptional portability, outstanding image quality, and weather- resistant features,” said Victor Ha, senior director of marketing and product management for FUJIFILM North America Corporation’s Electronic Imaging Division.
Product features include:
Aperture ring with F-stop scale and A-Position Lock
XF 27mm f/2.8 features an aperture ring with an F-stop scale, so that users can visually check and adjust their aperture setting without needing to look at the camera’s screen or through its viewfinder. The aperture ring also features the A (Auto) Position Lock, which locks the lens into the A-Position to prevent unintentional adjustments to the lens’ aperture while it is being used.
Weather-resistance has been applied at seven locations on the lens to protect against water and dust and allow it to fully operate in temperatures as low as 14°F (-10°C).
Lens hood included
In addition to the standard lens cap, XF 27mm f/2.8 comes packaged with a dome-shaped lens hood (LH-XF27) and a hood cap (LHCP-27) to provide options to protect the lens, and to accommodate users that prefer using a low-profile hood over the lens caps because of its convenience.
Thin and lightweight design combined with advanced image quality
・ Since the diameter of the image circle needed to cover an APS-C sensor (28.4mm) is so close in dimension to XF 27mm f/2.8’s focal length, the lens produces uniquely high quality images while boasting an incredibly compact design.
・ Despite its compact size, the lens consists of seven lens elements in five groups, including one aspherical element, which mitigates spherical aberration, field curvature, and distortion. This allows XF 27mm f/2.8 to deliver astounding image resolution, even when it is used at its widest apertures.
・ XF 27mm f/2.8 features a high-torque DC motor to enable fast and accurate AF, while the front lens group of five lens elements effectively maintains image quality by minimizing aberrations that may occur, whether the lens is being used for close-ups or for subjects that are further away.
・ One of the thinnest and lightest*1 XF lenses in the XF lens collection, XF 27mm f/2.8 measures just 62mm in diameter and is only .91 in. (23mm) long. The lens is very lightweight at approximately 3 ounces (84g), which makes it an ideal choice for assignments where compactness and overall size are of concern.
As referenced above, a lens hood and hood cap come packaged together with the XF 27mm f/2.8 lens. Replacements of these accessories are available for separate purchase as well.
Pricing and Availability
The Fujinon XF 27mm f/2.8 is currently expected to be available in March 2021 at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $399.95 USD and $520 CDN.
