The Fujifilm X100S boasts a premium 23mm F2 fixed lens for quality without compromise in a slim compact body.
When the X100S was being developed, Fujifilm's goal was to achieve the best image quality without compromise and design it to fit in a slim, compact body that you will take everywhere. This was achieved through the incorporation of a non-interchangeable, non-collapsible, fixed focal length lens. While featuring the generous brightness of a maximum F2 aperture, the large-diameter rear lens group is integrated into the body for an ultra-slim profile. In addition, the optimization of the sensor for this special lens fully exploits the advantage of a fixed focal length lens for superior edge-to-edge image quality.
The simple all-glass lens configuration (6 groups/8 elements) is designed around a single high-performance double-sided aspheric lens. Uncompromising image quality is assured by the application of multi-layer HTC-EBC (High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating) coating and other technologies. The result is perfectly balanced optical excellence promising low aberration, sharp resolution and faithful colour reproduction.
The FUJIFILM X100s employs spherical lens elements including a double-sided aspheric lens made by a glass moulding process for delivering maximum performance.
All the lens elements used in the FUJIFILM X100S have been treated with multi-layer Super EBC (Electron Beam Coating), the same process used for Fujinon broadcasting video lenses and large-format camera lenses acclaimed by professionals. Reducing ghosting and lens flare, the treatment promises clear image quality.
Providing a circular opening at the largest aperture, the 9-blade aperture diaphragm lets you capture pleasingly defocused background effects. Even with a slightly wide angle, the background is softly out of focus while the foreground is sharply defined.
Equivalent to 3 f-stops, the ND filter in the FUJIFILM X100S lens reduces the amount of light to 1/8. In situations where the light is very strong but you want to shoot at a slow shutter speed or don't want to close the aperture, the built-in ND filter captures the flow of water, flowers swaying in the breeze in bright sunlight or professional portraits with a beautiful defocused background.
The FUJIFILM X100S lets you bring the edge of the lens as close as 10cm from your subject. Outstanding shooting range and exceptional performance in a variety of scenes set this lens apart.
Specifically designed to seamlessly unite with the design of the FUJIFILM X100S lens without impacting on its exceptional performance, the Wide Conversion Lens* expands the angle of view from the original 35mm** to 28mm**. Landscapes become more dynamic and the depth of wide macro shots will amaze you. The X100S camera's very light weight of 140g and compact design let you explore a wider range of expression without sacrificing portability.
