It takes a lot to design and engineer a wide-angle lens that produces beautifully sharp images from corner to corner, with little-to-no distortion at the frame’s edges. XF18mmF1.4 accomplishes this difficult task by using 15 lens elements - as well as one ED and three aspherical elements - to minimize optical aberrations. This produces an image that is not only incredibly sharp, but also perfectly complemented by the beautiful bokeh created at F1.4 by Fujinon’s renowned, rounded aperture blades.
Measuring just 3.0in (75.6mm) in length and weighing 13.1oz (370g), XF18mmF1.4 is set to be a constant companion on any creative journey. Not only does it meet the needs of being an everyday solution, it will also be sure to delight professionals of shape and size because of its versatility and all-around performance.
Creativity shouldn’t stop when bad weather starts, which is why XF18mmF1.4 is designed to be resistant to the elements. A total of eight weather- resistant seals are used to allow for continued operation in dusty, moist, and freezing conditions down to -10°C (14°F).
The XF18mmF1.4 uses a linear autofocus (AF) motor to provide consistent autofocus results. This precise internal system drives all six focusing elements to deliver responsive, near-silent AF down to 7.9in (20cm) as fast as 0.04 seconds. For those situations that require a personal touch, the lens’ manual focusing ring provides smooth, even rotation from one end to the other. This makes pulling focus a breeze when recording video and selective focus simple when photographing through objects like prisms and loupes.
