FUJIFILM XF 27mm f/2.8 Overview

Featuring an especially slim, pancake design, the black XF 27mm f/2.8 from FUJIFILM is a versatile 41mm-equivalent prime that is ideal for travel and everyday shooting. Its f/2.8 maximum aperture helps to realize its slim stature, and also suits working in difficult lighting conditions and offers control over depth of field for working with selective focus techniques. One aspherical element has been incorporated in the optical design, and helps to reduce distortion and spherical aberrations, and a Super EBC coating has also been applied to control flare and ghosting. Additionally, benefitting both photo and video applications, a high-torque DC coreless motor is used to realize quick, accurate, and near-silent autofocus performance.

Short normal-length prime is designed for APS-C-format FUJIFILM X-mount mirrorless cameras and provides a 41mm equivalent focal length.
Modestly bright f/2.8 maximum aperture benefits working in low-light, affords control over depth of field, and helps to keep the overall physical design compact and lightweight.
Pancake form factor measures less than 1" thick for an ultra-portable, versatile design.
One aspherical element limits distortion and spherical aberration in order to realize greater sharpness and accurate rendering.
Super EBC coating has been applied to individual elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
High-torque DC coreless motor provides especially quick, precise, and responsive autofocus performance.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Is this lens metal or plastic construction?
Asked by: Alec
I believe it is a combination of plastic and metal; however having said that, it is very well made, compact, small, and light. The equivalent full-frame focal length of 40mm is considered by many to be ideal. I use mine on an X-Pro 2: note that it does not have an aperture ring; very satisfied with mine.
