FUJIFILM WCL-X100 Overview

The WCL-X100 Wide-Angle Conversion Lens for X100 Camera (Silver) 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.

FUJIFILM WCL-X100 Reviews

A GREAT WIDE EXTRA LENS

By Carl

The WCL-x100 Wide-Angle Conversion Lens is the best lightweight, sharp and ideal focal length for my street photography. The original 23mm Lens on my Fuji x100F is fine for most photos but the little bit of extra view that the WCL provides, is just perfect! Most importantly, this lightweight lens, easily screws into the front of the 23mm lens and with no loss of quality, makes the combinatiion unbeatable! I'm sure glad I added this special lens to my camera and the price at B & H Photo was fantastic!!

It's a great thing to have in your pocket when you need to go a little wider. it's sharper then I thought it would be. I've read other reviews about it but seeing is believing. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because of the lens cap not being that great. It pops off very easily, I wish it had the same kind that comes with the camera.

Delayed in getting one........

I am still an X100 user but delayed in getting one of these because I wanted to see if Fuji was going to retain compatibility with the new X100T (I decided to skip the X100s upgrade). On my X100, the performance is really tremendous and even pixel peeping, one can see no sign of color fringes. Fuji did a great job on this from the beginning and it's absolutely worth the money. The build is also exquisite and I look forward to even better shots with a new X100T.

Great piece of glass!

I shoot professionally. Done so for many, many decades. Cut my teeth on a Leica M. Until I purchased an X100S I never found another camera that felt right in my hand. This does. But the fixed 23mm lens (35mm in full frame) just wasn't enough. I'm a wide guy. The 28mm on my Leica was my normal. I really didn't expect much from a converter lens but I had to try. Surprised doesn't come close to what I saw when I looked at my files. Shock, awe, delight is more accurate. This lens is every bit as sharp as any Elmarit I ever used on my Leica, only MUCH less expensive. If you have an x100 or x100s buy this. Right now. It may never leave your camera.

Great Accessory

I love my X100T, but sometimes I need a wider lens. The Wide-Angle Conversion Lens is the answer. 28mm is perfect for some situations. The quality and build is outstanding. Very simple to attach and use.

Good Extension Product

Both the screw on adapter lenses for the Fuji X100 series really makes the camera far more versatile. Both have solid construction, and impeccable image quality.

Excellent optics

Too bad Fuji doesn't just offer the X100T in a kit with the WCL-X100 and TCL-X100 converters. My WCL-X100 just lives on the X100T in a Black Raqpid SnapR-35 that goes just about everywhere with me. Just remember to set the conversion lens setting correctly in the X100T or you will need to correct some minor distortion in post.

question

Can I use this lens with my x100T?
Asked by: Jennifer
Yes you can! It can be difficult to get that protective ring off the lens of the camera at first to reveal the threading the wide angle screws onto. I used a clean dish glove to unscrew it for grip.

question

how does one attach a filter to this lens?
Asked by: Ed
There is a ring on the front of the built in lens. You remove the ring and thread the conversion lens onto the exposed threads. Once attached you go to the menu and tell the camera a conversion lens is attached in order to change the bright line in the viewfinder.
