The FUJIFILM WCL-X100, a wide conversion lens made in Japan and designed specifically for the award winning FUJIFILM X100, attaches directly onto the camera and increases picture taking versatility by multiplying the fixed focal length by 0.8x, converting it from 23mm (35mm equivalent) fixed focal length to a 19mm wide angle (28mm equivalent). The WCL-X100 delivers superb optical quality and maximizes versatility of the FUJIFILM X100 by ensuring comparable image quality even at the f/2 wide aperture setting, all while retaining all the original optical characteristics, including the attractive bokeh effect. The FUJIFILM WCL-X100’s optical construction uses four premium glass elements in three groups to keep aberrations minimal, and also employs the unique FUJINON Super EBC (Electron Beam Coating) for outstanding results.

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.
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.
I can say for certain sharpness and picture quality overall is not compromised. Whoever engineered this beauty did a great job.
