Fujifilm has introduced the XF 27mm F2.8, a compact ‘pancake’ lens for its X-system cameras. It’s just 23mm thick and weighs only 78g, making it by far the smallest X-mount lens. This means there’s no space for an aperture ring, so X-Pro1 and X-E1 owners will need to update their firmware to allow aperture setting from the camera’s rear control dial.

Fujifilm XF 27mm f/2.8 Features and Specifications
High-performance lens that offers a field of view similar to that of the human eye, covering a wide range of scene types
The lens has a fixed focal length of 27mm (41mm in 35mm format equivalent), offering a field of view similar to that of the human eye, capturing each scene as precisely and naturally as you see it. It includes a glass moulded aspheric element which reduces image distortion as much as possible. You can explore different ideas dependent on the scene you’re shooting, e.g. using your own footwork to adjust the distance between yourself and your subject, or by changing the shooting angle, enabling you to enjoy a broad range of photography.
Lightweight and compact
Weighing 78g and measuring 23mm in length, this is one of the smallest and lightest single focal length lenses available for APS-sensor mirrorless cameras. Its thin form factor keeps the camera compact when mounted, encouraging you to take your camera wherever you go.
Outstanding resolving power for sharp and clear images
The advanced optical design is coupled with FUJINON’s proprietory HT-EBC Coating that brings a large amount of light onto the camera sensor to draw the maximum performance out of the X-Trans sensor, thus achieving outstanding resolving power for sharp and clear images.
The lens incorporates an autofocus design that uses a high-torque coreless DC motor to shift all of the front lens elements (5 elements in 4 groups) to achieve a fast AF speed. The quick AF response is one of the fastest amongst single focal length lenses on APS-sensor mirrorless cameras.
Premium-quality focus ring
The high precision focus ring is made of metal, and requires delicate operation during manual focusing. The materials and the design ensure a comfortable feel and exactly the right amount of torque when rotating the ring.
Bokeh effect for isolating a subject
The use of a seven-blade round diaphragm means your subject is isolated with beautiful bokeh in portraiture with a shallow depth of field, or for close-up photography of stunning dishes or small accessories.
Available in two colours
The 27mm lens will be available two different colours – both silver and black – to allow users to accessorise their X series cameras to their own taste.
