Fujifilm Fujinon XF 27mm f/2.8 R WR Lens offers a focal length equivalent to 41mm on cameras like the X-E4. While optically the same as its predecessor, Fujifilm added weather-sealing and an aperture ring with a lock function, without making the lens any larger. The lens accepts 39mm filters and weighs in at just 84 grams (3 oz).
The XF27mm F2.8 is a thin, “pancake-style” prime lens, with a focal length of 27mm, which provides image-makers with a natural field of view that is close to what the human eye sees, making it extremely suitable for a diverse range of styles from everyday general use to portraiture, street, and landscape photography.
The XF 27mm F2.8 R WR lens will be priced at $399.

Fujifilm Fujinon XF 27mm f/2.8 R WR Lens Features
Aperture ring with F-stop scale and A-Position Lock
XF27mmF2.8 features an aperture ring with an F-stop scale, so that users can visually check and adjust their aperture setting without needing to look at the camera’s screen or through its viewfinder. The aperture ring also features the A (Auto) Position Lock, which locks the lens into the A-Position to prevent unintentional adjustments to the lens’ aperture while it is being used.
Weather-resistance has been applied at seven locations on the lens to protect against water and dust and allow it to fully operate in temperatures as low as 14°F (-10°C).
Lens hood included
In addition to the standard lens cap, XF27mmF2.8 comes packaged with a dome-shaped lens hood (LH-XF27) and a hood cap (LHCP-27) to provide options to protect the lens, and to accommodate users that prefer using a low-profile hood over the lens caps because of its convenience.
Thin and lightweight design combined with advanced image quality
- Since the diameter of the image circle needed to cover an APS-C sensor (28.4mm) is so close in dimension to XF27mmF2.8’s focal length, the lens produces uniquely high quality images while boasting an incredibly compact design.
- Despite its compact size, the lens 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 astounding image resolution, even when it is used at its widest apertures.
- XF27mmF2.8 features a high-torque DC motor to enable fast and accurate AF, while the front lens group of five lens elements effectively maintains image quality by minimizing
aberrations that may occur, whether the lens is being used for close-ups or for subjects that are further away.
- One of the thinnest and lightest*1 XF lenses in the XF lens collection, XF27mmF2.8 measures just 62mm in diameter and is only .91 in. (23mm) long. The lens is very lightweight at approximately 3 ounces (84g), which makes it an ideal choice for assignments where compactness and overall size are of concern.
As referenced above, a lens hood and hood cap come packaged together with the XF27mmF2.8 lens. Replacements of these accessories are available for separate purchase as well.
