Even though Fujifilm doesn't list it in the specifications, the new WCL-X70 wide angle converter made for the new X70 also works (with some caveats) on the X100T.
For those anxious to dive right into the samples, head over to my image delivery site to view and download full-resolution JPEGs. Images listed as 19mm in the EXIF were shot with the WCL-X70. Those listed as 23mm were shot with the native X100T lens unaltered.
I share Alton Brown's distaste for unitaskers, so when Fujifilm Australia mentioned in an Instagram post that the new WCL-X70 wide angle converter designed for the newly released X70 camera would also fit the X100T, I became interested. One converter for two cameras is too good to pass up. Unfortunately, my internet searches turned up no high-resolution sample images of this combination, so I had no idea how well it would perform.
Long story short, I ordered the adapter and made my own gallery for the benefit of all the other X100 users out there who may be interested in going a bit wider than the WCL-X100 wide angle converter.

My photo story with text by Blair Kloman about the Addison County Fair and Field Days Demolition Derby is now online at The Warbler. Head over their and check out “Collision Course”.
Above is one of my favorite images from that set. There’s something about this blonde woman sitting proudly on top of her derby entry that reminds me of a Norse warrior about to ride her war horse into battle.
You can view the entire selection of images in the Demolition Days gallery.
