When mounted on the X100, one not familiar with the camera can't tell that you have an attachment -- it is so well integrated in terns of appearance and operation.
This has been reviewed here before but there is one thing I must add. Be sure to TURN ON the wide-angle option in the setup. This encodes the EXIF so the picture can be identified as one taken with a 19mm lens. If you don't, the wrong lens correction profile (that for the standard 23mm lens) will be applied. On most current digital camera lenses today, distortion, chromatic aberration, and vignetting corrections are done in software. Enabling the wide-angle option allows the correction to be done automatically. This is important.
If you are shooting either JPEG or RAW processed through the provided SilkyPix RAW converter, you don't need to do anything as this correction is done automatically for you.
If you are using Lightroom or Adobe Camera Raw you will have to install a lens correction profile in your computer. Since Fujifilm didn't provide such a file for the WCL-X100 attachment, I generated one and uploaded it to the Adobe site. To download and automatically install it on your computer, use Adobe Lens Profile Downloader which is available on their site.
Don't forget to turn off the wide-angle option once you remove the WCL-X100 from your camera.
There is no way I can speak to all the technicalities involved with this lens. There are plenty of great reviews out there – and I would recommend reading them for a better understanding of what all it offers.
Here's what I can tell you in simple terms:
1.) It is not a necessity for the Fuji X100s
2.) But it is a great addition, broadening the scope of your shots, somewhat.
3.) It most certainly works as advertised, and I did not notice any reduction of sharpness/clarity in my photos. I am sure there is some but it's not discernible except to the most critical.
4.) This wide conversion lens offers a few more creative options that I've enjoyed, particularly with close range shots.
5.) I would buy it again, in a heartbeat. But do know it detracts, ever so slightly, from the simplicity of the what the original intent was with the X100 series. Adding lenses, though fun, does put you back into the category of toting more gear and fiddling with more product.
6.) Enjoy your time photographing. Life is too short to worry about so much...if you've got the extra beans, buy it...if you don't, relax, you aren't missing enough to give it another thought.
I've seen online that many people using their own wide angle converters or adapters, such as the Nikon WC-E68, Panasonic DMW-LWA52 . I have tried the Nikon WC-E67 and Panasonic DMW-LW46. The Nikon WC-E68 actually produces decent results, but you're mounting a black converter lens on your beautiful silver X100. As for the rest, don't even bother because their image quality suck.
Buying the WCL-X100 conversion lens wasn't on my mind initially. I love using the X100 at the 35mm field of view (FOV). Due to some freak luck, I saw one at a camera store selling at US90 cheaper than the recommended retail of US399. So I thought why not?
The WCL-X100 comes in a small black box. Inside, there's the manual, your conversion lens, and a black fluffy carrying pouch.
It's solid, smooth and lustrous. The metal is similar to the 23mm lens on the X100. Note that it comes in two colours, so if you have the ...Read more ›

This lens worked perfectly with my X100s. It does add a little weight to the front and loses a bit of its balance but the images are worth it.Published 8 days ago by ALYA BELLO
I have put this on my X100T and have not removed it since. Very sharp.Published 3 months ago by Charlie D.
The WCL turns the 35mm perspective of the X100T into a 28mm perspective. It does protrude a bit, compared to the standard 23mm lens, so the X100T is not as pocketable with the WCL... Read morePublished 5 months ago by Brian Surguine

A great addition to my X100S. No loss of image quality at all. I would definitely recommend this if you're looking to go a little bit wider with your X100 series cameraPublished 9 months ago by Douglas Vance
