TCL-X100 attaches directly onto the FUJIFILM X100 / X100S and increases picture taking versatility by multiplying the fixed focal length by approx. 1.4x, converting it from 23mm(equivalent to 35mm on 35mm format) to a 33mm(equivalent to 50mm on a 35mm format) fixed focal length, and it achieves the minimum working distance of 14cm.
This optical excellence is underlined by the fact that the TCL-X100 is manufactured in Japan, allowing Fujifilm engineers to guarantee precision and quality in every component. The optical construction uses four premium glass elements in four groups to keep aberrations to a minimum and also employs Fujinon's unique Super EBC coating for outstanding results.
The design of the TCL-X100 has been carefully considered to ensure it blends seamlessly with the look and feel of the cameras. It is manufactured using the same materials, textures, colors and finishes as the FUJIFILM X100 / X100S
Achieving the very best results from the TCL-X100 is simple; just select the 'Tele- Conversion Lens' option in the FUJIFILM X100 and X100S's shooting menu. To enable this extra functionality, the camera must update the firmware(FUJIFILM X100: ver2.10 or later / FUJIFILM X100S: ver1.20 or later) which also allows the option to be selected via the function (Fn) button.
If you select 'Tele' in the "Conversion Lens" option, the FUJIFILM X100 / X100S cameras automatically apply image processing to shots taken using the TCL-X100, reducing image distortion, ensuring balanced illumination across the frame and reducing chromatic aberration commonly found in tele-conversion lenses.
In practice, the TCL-X100 enhances the functionality of the FUJIFILM X100 / X100S. The auto focusing speed remains the same, the 10cm macro distance still applies and it is also compatible with the FUJIFILM X100 / X100S's hybrid viewfinder. 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.
