Aperture ring with F-stop scale and A-Position Lock
XF27mmF2.8 now features an aperture ring with an F-stop scale, so that users can visually check and adjust their aperture settings without needing to look at the camera’s screen or through its viewfinder. The aperture ring also features the A (Auto) Position Lock1, which locks the lens into the A-Position to prevent unintentional adjustments to the lens’s aperture while it is being used.
Weather-resistance is applied at seven locations on the XF27mmF2.8 to protect it against water and dust, and allow it to fully operate in temperatures down to -10°C.
Lens hood included
In addition to the standard lens cap, XF27mmF2.8 comes equipped with a dome-shaped lens hood (LH-XF27) and a hood cap (LHCP-27) to provide options that protect the lens, and is suitable for userswho prefer the convenience of using low-profile hoods over lens caps.
Thin and lightweight design combined with advanced image quality
The diameter of the image circle needed to cover the APS-C sensor is 28.4mm, which is very close in size to the dimension of the XF27mmF2.8’s focal length. This has enabled FUJIFILM to create a small compact size lens capable of producing incredible image quality.
Despite its compact size, XF27mmF2.8 consists of seven lens elements in five groups, including one aspherical element, which mitigates spherical aberration, field curvature, and distortion. This allows XF27mmF2.8 to deliver advanced image resolution, even when used at its widest apertures.
XF27mmF2.8 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 minimising aberrations that mayoccur when the lens is used for close-ups or with subjects that are further away.
One of the thinnest and lightest XF lenses in the collection, XF27mmF2.8 R WR, measures just 62mm in diameter and is only 23mm long. The lens is very lightweight at approximately 84g, which makes it an ideal choice for assignments where compactness and overall size are a concern.
Although the lens hood and hood cap are included in the lens kit. They also come as optional accessories, should they need to be replaced.
