The Fujifilm - XF 18mm F1.4 R LM WR Lens offers incredible optical performance in a lightweight and compact body with an 18mm focal length (27mm in 35mm format equivalent) and a wide F1.4 aperture. This makes it an ideal lens for capturing everything from landscapes and cityscapes to portraits and weddings.
Keeping to the X Series philosophy of creating lightweight and compact imaging solutions that produce outstanding image quality. The XF18mmF1.4 measures 7.56cm in length and weighing just 370g and it has a filter size of 62mm with a minimum focusing distance of 20cm, providing incredible optical performance without being heavy or bulky. Making the XF18mmF1.4 an easy choice among many photographers compared to other lenses that have a similar angle of view and aperture.
The lens’ wide F1.4 aperture offers the ability to shoot in dimly lit environments and also produces incredibly smooth bokeh.
The XF 18mm F1.4 utilises three aspherical lenses and one ED lens among its 15 lens elements, spread across 9 groups, to minimise chromatic and comatic aberration. This means the finest details of an image will be reproduced with high levels of detail and sharpness.
To deliver consistent sharpness the focus group, made up of six lens elements, move in unison to reduce aberration fluctuations that can occur when focusing.
The XF 18mm F1.4 has a 35mm equivalent focal length of 27mm and can achieve Minimum Focus Distance on subjects as close as 11cm from the front element of the lens (MOD 20cm). This gives it a broad range of applications from being used to capture images of everyday moments to sweeping landscapes.
The XF18mmF1.4 uses an internal autofocus (AF) system, driven by a powerful linear motor, to provide fast, accurate, and near-silent AF. From the lens’ minimum object distance (MOD) of 20cm the focusing group of lens elements moves 2.5mm. This means focus can be achieved in as quickly as 0.04 seconds.
The XF18mmF1.4 has a 62mm filter thread that measures 7.56cm in length and weighs just 370g. This makes it incredibly lightweight and portable. While the lens barrel is made from metal, it is designed to weigh as little as possible without compromising its overall strength.
