Product Description

Fujifilm XF 8mm F3.5 R WR lens

  • APS-C | f/3.5
  • 12mm (Full-Frame Equivalent)
  • Lightweight Ultra-Wide Angle
  • Aspherical and Low Dispersion Elements

Expand your view with FUJINON XF 8mm F3.5 R WR, and take in the view. The ultra-wide field of view provides a dynamic perspective that brings your subjects closer while pushing your background to infinity. XF 8mm F3.5 R WR is perfect for carrying with your standard zoom lens when you're in a tight spot or for video use, such as vlogging when you plan on creating selfie-style.

Engineered to work with the latest 40-megapixel X-Trans sensors, the ultra-wide focal length delivers sharpness across the frame with the aid of two extra-low dispersion and three aspherical elements to suppress lens aberrations. The rectilinear design minimizes distortion, ensuring vertical lines in a scene stay vertical in the resulting images and video.

Despite its capabilities, the XF 8mm lens remains lightweight and compact, weighing only 7.6 oz. Focusing speeds are improved, with an inner focusing mechanism and low focus breathing, making it suitable for both video and stills.

The 62mm filter thread allows for easy attachment of filters, such as NDs or polarizers. The weather-resistant design protects the lens from dust, moisture, and low temperatures.

The XF 8mm F3.5 R WR is an ultra-wide angle (UWA) prime lens with a focal length of 8mm (equivalent to 12mm in the 35mm film format), the widest among the lineup of Fujifilm’s XF lenses. It boasts a viewing angle of 121 degrees diagonally and 112 degrees horizontally. While human vision is said to have a wide-angle field of view, the effective visual field for the observable area a person can see clearly is as limited at around 60 degrees. The angle of view for the UWA 8mm lens (equivalent to 12mm in the 35mm film format) captures information from an area about double the effective visual field, beyond what human vision can recognize. The use of Fujifilm’s unique optical design makes it possible to deliver edge-to-edge visual clarity. The UWA lens brings in massive information in intricate detail, e.g. tree branches and leaves in the expansive wilderness or ornamental details at a majestic cathedral or temple. The lens’s compact design provides portability, allowing users to enjoy the world of UWA photography casually.

The XF 8mm F3.5 R WR is a UWA lens with outstanding image-resolving performance, consisting of 12 lens elements in nine groups including three aspherical elements and two ED elements. The UWA focal length of 8mm (equivalent to 12mm in the 35mm film format) with a diagonal viewing angle of 121 degrees is perfect for capturing massive information in landscape photography or taking advantage of UWA’s unique perspective for a dramatic finish. The lens captures wide expanses of the world in edge-to-edge clarity, thanks to its exceptional image-resolving performance.

The XF 8mm F3.5 R WR measures 52.8mm long, weighs 215g and has the versatile filter thread size of 62mm despite being a UWA lens. The compact and lightweight design makes it an ideal walkaround lens with a wide range of applications including landscape, architecture, snapshots and travel photography. In addition, the versatile filter thread size of 62mm enables enriched landscape photography, a popular genre for UWA lenses, and accommodates the use of a variety of filters in long-exposure snapshots and travel photography.

LENS CONFIGURATION 12 elements in 9 groups
(includes 3 aspherical and 2 ED elements)

Understanding: Aperture

Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

Understanding: Lens Types

Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

Understanding: Lens Mounts

Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
