Big performance from a compact lens

The Fujinon XF 27mm f/2.8 may be small in size, but when it comes to capturing superb images, this lens is a real heavyweight. Its low mass and compact form factor make it the perfect "walk around" lens for all-day shooting with your compatible Fujifilm camera. The 27mm focal length gives you approximately the same angle of view as the human eye, making it not only an ideal choice for snapshots, but also a great performer for a variety of scenes from portraits and landscapes to architectural photography. Its built-in, high-torque motor makes autofocus fast and precise for recording fleeting moments with crystal clarity.   

Fujifilm X-Pro1 and X-E1 owners PLEASE NOTE: This lens does not feature an aperture ring. Please be sure your camera body's firmware is up-to-date to enable aperture adjustment via the camera's command dial.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This lens is a real surprise considering price but it holds its own in all price brackets. I am really impressed with its very crisp and contrasty images and without lens stabilization no less. I bought a third party les filter and hood for less than $20.00 and this little guy is ready to make some travel and family memories. A trip to the zoo or Disney is going to be a lot easier when combined with the excellent Fuji 18mm f 2 xf lens. Fuji makes photography fun against hour the hassle of DSLR fatigue at the end of the day.

Pros: Optics,lightweight,quality construction, reasonably fast AF,outstanding images.

Cons: None
