XF27mmF2.8 R WR also benefits from dust- and weather-resistance, so you can make the most of any situation, while the near-silent autofocus and easy-to-use aperture ring with its aperture lock, guarantee you can create with complete confidence and minimal distractions. All this comes together to ensure that, while the lens itself may not get noticed, the pictures you make certainly will.
TAKE COMPLETE CREATIVE CONTROL: Stay discreet and remain completely immersed in the moment with XF27mmF2.8 R WR’s aperture ring, which lets you externally control your aperture, even when the camera is switched off. Not only does this feature ensure you’re always ready to frame fleeting moments, but it also minimizes mistakes with a new aperture lock button to keep the ring locked into the A position when you’re letting the camera do the work. Create with complete confidence with XF27mmF2.8 R WR at your side.
CREATE IN ANY CONDITION: With an extremely small and lightweight design, XF27mmF2.8 R WR is an ideal compact prime lens to carry at all times, just in case the perfect photo opportunity arises. That’s why it has been equipped with extensive weather-resistance and the ability to operate in temperatures as low as 14°F (-10°C). Regardless of where you are or what you’re faced with, this lens is always ready to perform.
REACT IN A SPLIT SECOND: framing a fraction of a second is no easy task, so ensuring your lens is able to react as quickly as you can is a must. With a coreless DC motor that moves the whole lens group, XF27mmF2.8 R WR is capable of extremely fast, precise, and near-silent autofocus. When combined with a wide F2.8 aperture, it creates high-quality images with gorgeous background blur, even when the light is low. All this ensures that you don’t just frame the moment, you frame it beautifully.
PROTECT BUT DON’T PROHIBIT: Lens hoods play an important role in photography. By blocking stray light from hitting the lens at oblique angles, they help prevent flare and other forms of interference. They also offer valuable protection for the front element from inadvertent bumps that can happen while you’re immersed in creating an image. The included dome-style hood is small, compact, and finds the perfect balance between practicality and performance by minimizing uneven flash coverage or obstructions to the field of view that can occur when using larger hoods.
PROFESSIONAL PERFORMANCE WITHIN REACH: On top of so many fantastic and new features, XF27mmF2.8 R WR is even more affordable than its predecessor, making high-quality prime photography more accessible than ever. Whether you are an enthusiast taking your first steps with a prime lens, a budding street photographer looking for discreet performance, or a seasoned pro who wants a fantastic everyday option, XF27mmF2.8 R WR is the clear choice.
