Sporting a slim and portable form factor, the Fujifilm XF 27mmF2.8 R WR Black Lens is a thin, “pancake-style” prime lens, with a focal length of 27mm, which provides users with a natural field of view that is close to what the human eye sees. This makes it suitable for a diverse range of photography styles, from everyday general use to portrait, street and landscape photography.
In terms of optics, one aspherical element is featured 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.

With its compact design, exceptional portability, outstanding image quality and weather-resistant features, image-makers may find themselves frequently using the XF27mmF2.8 R WR as an everyday lens.
Despite its compact size, XF 27mm F2.8 consists of seven lens elements in five groups, including one aspherical element, which mitigates spherical aberration, field curvature, and distortion. This allows XF27mmF2.8 to deliver advanced image resolution, even when used at its widest apertures.
