The lens features superb F2.0-2.8 brightness and a 4x optical zoom that promises high-resolution optical performance across the entire range from 28mm* wide angle to 112mm* telephoto. From the aspheric and ED lenses to high-refractive index lens, every element in the design is made from high-performance optical glass and treated with a multi-layer HT-EBC (High Transmittance Electron Beam Coating) for high resistance to ghosting and lens flare.
As you raise FUJIFILM X20 to your eye to frame your shot, you can power up the camera, never letting your attention waver from the subject in the viewfinder.
The metal cam-driven mechanism and a special grease originally developed ensure that magnification is precisely on-target, and the smooth high-precision zoom operates perfectly.
With a maximum aperture of F2.0 at wide angle and F2.8 at its maximum telephoto setting, this zoom is an extremely bright lens that can produce beautiful defocused effects across the zoom range. The built-in OIS (optical image stabilization) mechanism delivers an image stabilizing effect equivalent to 4 stops and is extremely effective in preventing blurring caused by camera shake or subject movement.
In order to maintain the FUJIFILM X20's compact shell whilst ensuring high image quality, Fujinon has adopted lenses made of glass with superior optical characteristics for all elements in the 9-groups/11-elements configuration. The design incorporates an arrangement of aspheric lenses, ED lenses and high-refractive index lenses, and are treated with Fujinon's originally developed Super EBC (Electron Beam Coating).
High optical zoom performance and the freedom to enjoy it anytime, anywhere — this is the essence of FUJIFILM X20 photography! Less than half the depth of conventional compact system cameras, the compact FUJIFILM X20 body is a slim 56.8mm including the retracted lens. Designed to be your constant companion, the lightweight compact form easily slips into your bag or pocket.
By using 3 high-performance aspherical lenses, the FUJIFILM X20 delivers sharp image quality with rich resolution. These lenses also contribute to a more compact overall lens configuration and the FUJIFILM X20's compact body size ensuring you can easily take it everywhere with you.
Two ED lenses have been employed for their low dispersion and effective reduction of chromatic aberrations. By preventing color fringing and reducing contrast, the FUJIFILM X20 lens captures images with superb accuracy across the zoom range from wide angle to telephoto.
All the lens elements used in the FUJIFILM X20 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.
The combination of the bright F2.0 lens and the 7-blade aperture diaphragm, capture the subject in crisp detail with a beautiful defocused “bokeh” effect.
At a distance of just 1cm, macro photography using the FUJIFILM X20 allows you to capture all the exquisite detail of your subject from really close up.
