Product Features in Detail
Versatility at its best
Boasting a compact and lightweight design, this versatile 18mm XF F2 lens (135 equivalent: 27mm) produces enhanced image resolution right to the image edge.
The Fujifilm XF 18mm F2 R lens features an all-glass aspherical lens and other elements, the lens is polished to perfection and treated with Super EBC coating while the high-quality metal barrel and precision-machined 1/3-step aperture ring gives versatile control.
Thanks to the design of the moulded aperture diaphragm blades, excellent out-of-focus bokeh are achieved. The blades are curved to create a circular image at all aperture settings, while the very edges of each blade are meticulously rounded off rather than simply cut off, which delivers a sharper image.
Maximizing the design
Specifically designed to maximise the mirror less design of the X-Pro1 body, the X-Mount has a short flange back distance of just 17.7mm giving high resolution right across the image.
Sleek and sturdy
Using glass-mold aspheric lenses at the 5th and 7th elements, is effective to in increasing the maximum aperture (5th element) and reducing the overall thickness of the lens (7th element)
This Fujifilm XF 18mm F2 R lens is one of 3 introduced with Fujifilm's X-Pro1 interchangeable lens digital camera. It offers a bright maximum aperture of f/2, and an angle of view equivalent to a 27mm lens on a 35mm camera, which will give you the best performance.
Weighing in at only 116g, this 18mm lens from Fuji is unbelievably light weight, but still feels very solidly built. A combination of high quality plastics and metal have been used in the creation of the lens barrel, and the mount is made of metal. It's retro styling and high quality built compliments the Fuji X-Pro1 perfectly.
Perfect for use with graduated filters and polarising since the 52mm filter thread doesn't rotate, and that the lens only extends by a few millimeters at the closest focus. A rectangular hood can be attached to the bayonet around the front of the lens with enough space inside for one filter. Adjusments are easy to apply due to the narrow focusing being well damped.
Manual aperture ring
The Fujifilm XF 18mm F2 R lens has a manual aperture ring to compliment the retro styling of the X-Pro1. Each full stop is marked in this aperture ring, with click stops for each intermediate 1/3 stop setting, and an "A" setting if you prefer an automatic operation. To make quick adjustments, you only need to gently touch the aperture ring to move through the aperture range. Take care when changing lenses since the aperture ring is moved easily.
Real time is the best time
The lens focus quickly in good light and at normal distances. To get in close to your subject, it is ideal to get a minimum focus distance of only 18cm, for shooting in confined environments or to exploit the distortions that a wide angle lens can produce.
Good sharpness in the center part of the image area and even on the edges.
When stopped down a bit, this lens is optically capable of delivering excellent clarity in the center part of the frame.
