Fujifilm XF 27mm (41mm) F/2.8 R Lens – Silver
In new condition only, the Fujifilm XF 27mm (41mm) F/2.8 R Lens – Silver is an extremely compact, and lightweight prime lens. Built to work directly with the Fujifilm X series mirrorless cameras, it delivers a versatile 35mm equivalent focal length of 41mm, and a 55.5° angle of view. The lens has a maximum aperture of f/2.8 and is effective in low light situations. This F 2.8 maximum aperture also allows you to create a shallow depth of field. Fast and precise autofocus is provided by a built-in, high-torque DC coreless motor and its single metal lens ring offers accurate manual focus capability. An aspherical lens element minimizes aberrations for sharp overall imaging. Fujinon's HT-EBC lens coating reduces reflections at a wider wavelength and minimizes flares and ghosting. The lens stops down to f/16 in 1/3 EV stops, and its minimum focus distance is 13.4". Offered with standard free shipping, this 27mm lens is a smart pick.
From the Manufacturer
Inconspicuous, sharp, light and overall joy for the price. No aperture ring (not a huge deal) and slightly plasticy build. But images are wonderful. Again, for the price, IQ and small size...hard to beat value.
I have the Fuji X-M1 and this little lens is perfect for travel/street photography. It turns my camera into something I can put in a jacket pocket and have handy any time, any place. Works well in low light but, with no image stabilization, low shutter speed is something to monitor.
I haven't used it as much as I expected but for times when compact easy-carry matters, it excels. I find it very sharp and solid performing. It compares favorably with my other optics for my XE-1.
The 27mm provides a great "normal" perspective on the Fuji X size sensor. The color and sharpness are of the same high caliber as the other X lenses. The X-E2 with the 27 attached is barely bigger than the X100 which makes this setup ideal for everyday carry and travel. I highly recommend this lens with two caveats: This is the only lens in the XF line-up (currently) that lacks an aperture ring. While that is an understandable decision based on the incredbily small size of the lens barrel, it does make it slightly inconsistent in handling when switching between the 27 and other XF lenses if you are used to using the aperture ring. The X-E2 (and perhaps other X bodies) allows XF lenses with aperture rings to be controlled via the command dial just like the 27mm so you can use that function to make handling more consistent across all your lenses. Another ommision that is understandable due to the minimalist approach in design is the lack of a dedicated hood with this lens. Another inconsistency with all other X lenses. Many other similar size and foclal length pancake lenses from other brands have historically provided decent hoods for their small lenses (Voigtlander 40mm, Pentax 21mm). I am a "hoodie" so I would have appreciated a nice dedicated hood.
I was hoping that Fuji would release a compact 23mm F2.8 lens but they released the very large 23mm 1.4. So I got the 27mm for my X-E1. I could not be happier. It's compact, takes great photos and the camera with lens will fit in a jacket or vest pocket
