The best image quality without compromise, packed into a slim compact body that you want to take everywhere with you... These were the aims when the FUJIFILM X100S was being developed. And they have been achieved through the incorporation of a newly developed, 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 Electoron Beam Coating) coating and other technologies. The result is perfectly balanced optical excellence promising low aberrations, sharp resolution and faithful color reproduction.
The use of an aspheric lens increases the freedom in lens design; however, it does not necessarily lead to the development of a good lens. For the FUJIFILM X100S, spherical lens elements are used as much as possible, and one double-sided aspheric lens made by a glass molding process has been adopted as the most effective element for delivering maximum performance.
All the lens elements used in the FUJIFILM X100S have been treated with multilayer 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 do not desire to close the aperture, the built-in ND filter captures the flow of water or 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 look and feel 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. Its very light weight of 140g and compact design let you explore a wider range of expression without sacrificing the excellent portability of the FUJIFILM X100S.
