Fuji announces 0.8x converter lens for the X100 (28mm eq.) [with samples!]
Fuji has just announced via press release the WCL-X100 wide converter lens for the X100 digital camera. The converter lens will take you from 35mm to 28mm in 35mm-equivalent speak (or 23mm to 19mm in native). To spare us all the math, it is has a 0.8x magnification factor. It is all glass with four elements in three groups. It will be available in silver or black and is "made in Japan" (by humans or robots?).
This is perhaps a sign that Fuji has not "forgotten" the X100, now that they have launched their XF mirrorless system?
