As you all know by now, my relationship with Leica has been a life long love affair. I was a one camera man and I definitely had eyes for no other image capturing machine. Howeveer like so many flawed men before me I was destined to fail where others did not.
My Leica M9-P left for some well earned R&R (CLA & New Sensor), and that's when the Fujifilm X100s, in black, entered my life and the rest is history, kinda. We begun a rather celebrated affair and indeed It did seem like a match made in Heaven. However I often still yearned for a wider lens option or perhaps a longer focal length when shooting friends. The small form factor & auto focus was the draw card so neither the X-Pro 1 or other EM series interested me. So just when I thought all good things may come to an end in walks the 'TLC-X100' 50mm tele conversion lens.
The rest is history .... three words, GET THIS ADAPTER. What a dream now I have my very own FUJIFILM X100s 50mm. Whats not to like I will just leave it here and say that it is money well spent. If you are serious about your X100s it is a must. If your looking for an excuse to offload the Gear bloat now IS the time. Eject all that unwanted weight, grab this adapter along with 'FUJIFILM Wide Conversion Lens WCL-X100' and you have one hell of a kit for just about everything in one compact package.
Below are a few examples of Alex using the X100s with and without the adapter. Sharp all the way through. What a hefty chunk of glass, with fantastic results.
So quick, short and sweet as always. Have a look at the pics and do a bit more research if you wish. We at WECC give it a massive 4.9/5. The only gripe we have is the size, if we could wave are magic wand we would shrink it down. Unfortunately we cant transform the laws of physics so 4.9
