Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
The WCL-X100 Wide-Angle Conversion Lens for X100 Camera (Black) from Fujifilm converts the lens on your Fujifilm X100 camera from a 35mm equivalent lens to a 28mm equivalent lens, giving you a true wide-angle lens. Even better news than that: Fuji engineers have treated the conversion lens and the original lens as a single unit, so that there is little, if any, loss in image quality. They've designed newly developed firmware designed to correct for distortion, peripheral brightness, lateral chromatic aberration, etc.
The original lens apertures are still operative, so you can still shoot at f/2 (although, as with the original lens, the sharpest images will come in the f/4 to f/5.6 range). Either the optical or the electronic viewfinder can be used, and even close-focusing produces sharp, clear images with no loss of acuity. You can still use RAW files and shoot with Motion Panorama 360. Even the lovely bokeh of the X100 is undisturbed. Using the built-in flash can cause vignetting, so the use of an external flash is recommended. The included lens cap fits the 49mm diameter of the conversion lens, as does the optional PRF-49S protective filter. For optimal aberration control, X100 firmware must be updated to version 1.3.0 or later.
