Fujifilm X100s WCL-X100 Wide Angle Converter Preview: Fujifilm X100s With Wide Angle Adapter (3)

The new Fujifilm X100s features the new X-Trans II APS-C CMOS sensor from Fujifilm, with no optical low pass filter, phase detection built into the sensor, and new diffraction image processing for improved image quality, which Fujifilm says betters full-frame sensor cameras. Fujifilm has shown a number of slides showing the improvements made to the Fujifilm X100, as well as details on the new digital split image focusing.

We previously had a hands-on preview of the Fujifilm X100s here, so this time thought it would be good to have a longer look at the WCL-X100 wide-angler converter, which takes the 35mm equivalent lens to 28mm equivalent. Fujifilm say the conversion lens is a very high quality lens, and that under testing, image quality shows very minimal distortion.
