The ULTRON 27mm F2 X-mount is a standard lens designed exclusively for the Fujifilm X-mount. By designing the open aperture value with F2, which is sufficiently bright for practical use, the size of the entire product is compactly summarized. The total length is 23.5 mm shorter from the mount and highly portable, and the angle of view equivalent to 40 mm equivalent to full size can be taken a little wider than the general standard lens, so it can be used for various purposes.
Designed exclusively for Fujifilm X-mount
Implemented an optical system optimized for the image sensor of the Fujifilm X system camera. Without relying on the camera’s optical correction function, high resolution is maintained to the periphery of the image, and phenomena such as color coverings are also suppressed.
Information communication with the body by electronic contact
Equipped with electronic contacts, reliable telecommunications is realized between the lens and the body. In addition to Exif information, focus check, and shooting distance linkage display with the combination of telecommunications compatible body and the latest firmware (*1), in-body image stabilization and parallax correction are also supported for certain models.
Manual focus with reliable focus operation
The adoption of a total metal helicoid unit that has been processed and adjusted with high accuracy and high-quality grease that produces moderate torque realizes smooth operation feeling of focusing. Subtle focus adjustment is possible.
Beautiful bokeh taste with 10 aperture blades
In order to bring the hole formed by the aperture blade closer to the circle, a 10-piece aperture is adopted. The out-focus part is a natural depiction, and the point light source is not a polygonal, but a round and soft blur.
Aqueeze ring for mechanical direct connection operation
The aperture mechanism adopts a mechanism in which the aperture ring is directly connected to the opening and closing of the aperture blade, similar to the lens for the Voxtländer’s VM mount and mirrorless mount. With a 1/3 step click, you can enjoy the response of directly operating the mechanism.
Focus ring with excellent operability
The focus ring for focusing is equipped with a lever with a good finger shape to improve operability. You can also know the approximate distance set without looking at the distance index depending on the position of the lever.
Minimum shooting distance 0.25m
Although it is a compact style, the shortest shooting distance is 0.25m. It also supports table photos such as dishes and favorite accessories.
