Bright f/2 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light conditions.
Aspherical, DSA, and Super HR elements combine to control distortion and spherical aberrations for improved sharpness and resolution.
One extra-low dispersion element minimizes chromatic aberration and color fringing for greater clarity and color fidelity.
Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) autofocus system benefits both photo and video applications due to its smooth, quiet, and fast performance.
Manual focus clutch lets you quickly pull the focusing ring into place for direct, intuitive focus control. This also reveals the Snapshot Focus mode, which incorporates a depth of field scale for working with hyperfocal focusing and zone focusing techniques.

Would that lens be compatible with the Fuji x100F ?
Asked by: Joana
We're afraid not. The FUJIFILM X100F is a Point and Shoot Camera with a built in lens. This is for a camera with an MFT mount. FUJIFILM does offer the WCL-X100 II Wide Conversion Lens (Silver) which you could consider instead, B&H # FUWCLX100IIS. https://bhpho.to/2IzInVE
