Product Highlights
  • Converts X100 Lens to 28mm Equivalent
  • No Loss of Image Quality
  • Apertures are Unaffected
  • Works with Optical or Electronic VF
  • X100 Firmware Must be Updated to v.1.3.0

The WCL-X100 Wide-Angle Conversion Lens for X100 Camera (Black) from Fujifilm converts the lens on your Fujifilm X100 camera from a 35mm equivalent lens to a 28mm equivalent lens, giving you a true wide-angle lens. Even better news than that: Fuji engineers have treated the conversion lens and the original lens as a single unit, so that there is little, if any, loss in image quality. They've designed newly developed firmware designed to correct for distortion, peripheral brightness, lateral chromatic aberration, etc.

The original lens apertures are still operative, so you can still shoot at f/2 (although, as with the original lens, the sharpest images will come in the f/4 to f/5.6 range). Either the optical or the electronic viewfinder can be used, and even close-focusing produces sharp, clear images with no loss of acuity. You can still use RAW files and shoot with Motion Panorama 360. Even the lovely bokeh of the X100 is undisturbed. Using the built-in flash can cause vignetting, so the use of an external flash is recommended. The included lens cap fits the 49mm diameter of the conversion lens, as does the optional PRF-49S protective filter. For optimal aberration control, X100 firmware must be updated to version 1.3.0 or later.

        The Fuji 28 mm conversion lens is a must at a point. Just like any system sometimes you need that wide angel. The lens is smaller than the pictures of the lens make it seem.

        The additional angle view is perfect for landscape photography, the feel is solid and made from premium metal.

        The only negative thing is you need external flash - Shoe Mount Flash EF-X20, when using at night time, the built in flash will cast shadow.

        Comments about WCL-X100 Wide-Angle Conversion Lens for X100 Camera (Silver):

        Fujifilm WCL-X100 really turns the X100s in to a whole new camera. 28mm is really the perfect street photo focal length, and the best part is that it keeps the X100s stunning picture quality.

        Great adapter that allows you to capture a wider field-of-view without compromising quality.On the down side, it is relatively expensive for what it can achieve.Perhaps, you can spend extra $300 and get a RICHO GR

            Comments about WCL-X100 Wide-Angle Conversion Lens for X100 Camera (Silver):

            I wouldn't normally buy add on lens modifiers but read a good review of this one so decided to try it. The resulting files are so close in IQ to those produced by my X100 bare necked that I can't see any degradation at all. I'm sort of a halfhearted pixel peeper - I know enough to make decisions but don't get so deeply into it as others do. My liking this accessory should be taken with this in mind.
            This is quick to install and easy to carry. If the firmware is up to date the camera will know it's there.
            Can't wait to try it on the new X100s that's in the mail!

              I really love this wide angle conversion lens! For such a fantastic little camera like the X100, this is a great add on to make your photo ecperience that much more enjoyable. Although i wish the conversion factor was a little more like say a 24mm wide angle, but the look and feel of the WCL-X100 when attached to you camera definitely makes up for it!

              The lens installs very easily on the X100. Image Quality is not affected negatively with use. I have paired the WCL with a polarizing filter and achieved excellent results.

                    I mostly agree with the other comments. Having a 28mm field of view is very nice. The lens is high quality, I did buy a metal screw on cap for the mount side, since it comes with a rubber cover that falls off and is not very well designed. Also, I use Manual focus mode and then auto focus pushing the button on the back, and this lens does seem to interfere with the auto focus often, it will focus at 3m or 5m when you are clearly trying to get it to focus on infinity in a scenic shot. But when its working right the images are the same excellent quality as the built in 35mm (in 135) lens. It is a good value I think, now if they would just make a telephoto adaptor to give anything from 50 up to 80mm I would buy that too and be done!

                      I was pleasantly surprised by the high quality construction of this little lens. I haven't had chance to do a lot tests with it yet but so far the few shots I took did not looked bad at all, the colors and sharpness didn't seen to suffer but I do want to do more tests to be sure.

                      For the price, I did wish it came with a little hard carrying case for more protection, but that is just wishful thinking.

                          Comments about WCL-X100 Wide-Angle Conversion Lens for X100 Camera (Silver):

                          Fuji has done it again. I thought I would have to back up to get wider images with my X100, but now I have the WCL-X100 Wide-Angle Conversion lens. It makes the camera a little heaver, but using a full frame DSLR, the X100 with the WCL is still lighter. It uses the same lens hood, filters (49mm) and does not require an adapter to mount it to the lens. The f2 aperture is still retained

                          An impressive accessory for the X100

                            Architectural photography.
                            Light weight and fits the camera perfectly.
                            Cannot use with standard leather camera case.

                              Comments about WCL-X100 Wide-Angle Conversion Lens for X100 Camera (Silver):

                              I have been using this for the last 2 weeks and it is great. Sure it could have been a bit wider but to be honest it didn't take me long to get used to it. I am really impressed with the quality of the pictures. Historically I never liked these type of extension lenses which typically does not provide good quality pictures but Fuji did a great job on this.

                              Couldn't be happier with this purchase.

                                I was somewhat concerned about this product, as it looked like an afterthought, but all worries disappeared once I installed it.
                                It is built like a fine piece of optics, the mounting is secure and it is most definitely NOT an afterthought !
                                Image quality is excellent edge to edge. Firmware upgrade 1.3 takes care of the slight distortion.
