Fujifilm Augments Optics Line with Tele-Conversion Lens for X100X100s Cameras


Valhalla, NY—Fujifilm North America Corp.’s new TCL-X100 tele-conversion lens is made specifically for the Fujifilm X100 and X100S cameras. The lens attaches directly onto the camera to increase picture-taking versatility by multiplying the fixed focal length by approx. 1.4x. It will convert the focal length from 23mm (35mm in 35mm equivalent) to a 33mm fixed focal length (50mm equivalent).

The conversion lens is engineered to deliver high image resolution, even at the f/2.0 wide open aperture setting, and it uses a special HT-EBC multilayer coating to minimize ghosting and flare, retaining the original optical characteristics of the X100 and X100S.

To use the TCL-X100, users will need to update the camera’s firmware (X100, ver2.10 or later; X100S, ver1.20 or later), which also allows the option to be selected via the function (Fn) button, and then select the “tele-conversion lens” option in the Fujifilm X100/X100S’s shooting menu.

The TCL-X100 is compatible with the X100/X100S’s hybrid viewfinder, retains their autofocusing speed and offers a 5.5-inch macro shooting distance. With the optical viewfinder (OVF) selected, icons showing the edge of the frame are displayed, while selecting the electronic viewfinder (EVF) gives users a 100% field of view.

The TCL-X100 is designed to blend with the look of the X100/X100S and is manufactured using the same materials, textures, colors and finishes as the cameras. Fujifilm’s TCL-X100 will be available in May in silver and black for $349.99. fujifilmusa.com
