The old saying goes that the best camera is always the one you have with you. Carrying big heavy lenses everywhere is unrealistic but so is using something that doesn't give you the quality you need. The XF27mmF2.8 R WR is the ideal lens to take everywhere to satisfy your demand for high quality and portability.
Designed to be discreet
Consisting of seven elements in five groups, measuring just .9in (23mm) deep, and weighing just 2.9oz (84g), XF27mmF2.8 R WR’s combination of quality and portability is perfect for the street photographers and everyday creators documenting the day-to-day experiences that make life so special. Such remarkably discreet design and stunning optical performance ensures that, while the lens itself may not get noticed, the pictures you make certainly will.
A Different Point of View
Traditionally the 23mm focal length is said to be similar to the field of view of the human eye, while 35mm is said to give the most natural depth perspective. 27mm lies between these two iconic focal lenghts and shares a little of the characteristics from both, allowing this lens to cover a huge variety of genres and styles, from action-packed, everyday snapshots and creative street photography, to angular architectural scenes and sprawling landscapes.
Complete Creative Control
Externally control your aperture, even when the camera is switched off and be ready to frame fleeting moments with XF27mmF2.8 R WR’s newly designed aperture ring. Stay discreet and remain completely immersed in the moment and use the new aperture lock button to keep the lens set to Auto, while you’re letting the camera do the work. Create with complete and total confidence with XF27mmF2.8 R WR at your side.
Ready when you are
Framing a fraction of a second is no easy task, so having a lens that reacts quickly is essential. Using an internal motor to move the entire lens group into position, XF27mmF2.8 R WR is capable of extremely fast, precise, and near-silent autofocus. Even in low-light, the lens' wide F2.8 aperture will let you make high-quality images with gorgeous background blur, letting you frame moments beautifully.
Create in any Situation
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 -10°C(14°F). Regardless of where you are or what you’re faced with, this lens is always ready to perform.
