Superb optical quality and image processing

Engineered to ensure the supreme optical quality of the X100 and X100S remains intact

Superb optical quality maximises versatility

The WCL-X100 has been engineered to ensure the supreme optical quality of the X100 and X100S cameras remains intact. Created by the same experts who designed the X100’s lens, the WCL-X100 delivers comparable image quality even at the f/2 wide aperture setting, retaining all the original optical characteristics, including the attractive bokeh effect.

This optical excellence is underlined by the fact that the WCL-X100 is manufactured in Japan, allowing Fujifilm engineers to guarantee precision and quality in every component. The optical construction uses four premium glass elements in three groups to keep aberrations to a minimum and also employs FUJINON’s unique Super EBC coating for outstanding results.

In practice, the WCL-X100 maintains the functionality of the Fujifilm X100. The autofocussing speed remains the same, the 10cm macro distance still applies and it is also compatible with the Fujifilm X100/X100S’ hybrid viewfinder.

With the optical viewfinder (OVF) selected, icons showing 80% of the the edge of the frame are displayed, while selecting the electronic viewfinder (EVF) gives users a 100% field of view.

Image processing optimises picture quality

Achieving the very best results from the WCL-X100 is simple; just select the ‘Wide Conversion Lens’ option in the Fujifilm X100’s shooting menu. To enable this extra functionality, the camera must be updated to Firmware version 1.3.0 or later, which also allows the option to be selected via the Function (Fn) or RAW buttons.

The Fujifilm X100 / X100S has the option to apply image processing to shots taken using the WCL-X100 to reduce image distortion, ensure balanced illumination across the frame and reduce chromatic aberration, commonly found in wide conversion lenses.
