Hasselblad has announced three new lenses and one teleconverter for its XCD lens system. The lenses are the XCD 80mm F1.9, the XCD 65mm F2.8 and XCD 135mm F2.8, all of which are designed for the X1D digital medium format camera. In all, this brings the system to nine focal lengths covering 21-230mm (16.6-178mm full-frame equivalent).
The standout lens for most users will be the XCD 80mm F1.9, which is not only the fastest lens currently in the X System, but the fastest lens Hasselblad has ever released. Offering a field of view equivalent to 63mm and depth-of-field equivalent to F1.5 on a 35mm full-frame system, Hasselblad claims that the lens comes with 'superior optical surface precision' to allow for smooth bokeh and a twin motor drive for quick autofocus.
At 1045g (2.3lb), the 80mm F1.9 is currently the heaviest lens in the XCD lineup.
It has 14 elements in 9 groups and, at 1045g (2.3lb), it's currently the heaviest lens in Hasselblad's XCD lineup.
Hasselblad has also announced the XCD 65mm F2.8, with a 51mm equivalent field of view. With a close-focus distance of 0.5m (20in), the lens is positioned as a versatile option for street and travel photography.
Lastly, the company has announced the XCD 135mm F2.8 alongside the X Converter 1.7. On its own, the 135mm F2.8 provides roughly a 107mm field of view and a close focus distance of 1m (3.3ft). The lens and 1.7x teleconverter were designed to be paired without any loss of optical quality, and together offer a 230mm (178mm equivalent) field of view, F4.8 maximum aperture and a minimum focus distance of 1.05m (3.5ft).
As with all current XCD lenses, the 80mm, 65mm and 135mm lenses come with built-in leaf shutters to allow for full flash synchronization up to 1/2000s shutter speed.
They are all available for pre-order now, and will begin shipping in December 2018. The 80mm F1.9 will retail for $4845 / £3690 / €3990; the 65mm F2.8 will retail for $2750 / £2090 / €2290; the 135mm F2.8 will retail for $4050 / £3090 / €3390; bundling the 135mm F2.8 with the X Converter 1.7 brings the retail price to $4845 / £3690 / €3990.
Increasing the capabilities of the X1D-50c mirrorless medium format camera, Hasselblad adds three new lenses to its XCD lens family, including the XCD 1,9/80, with the largest aperture of a Hasselblad lens ever, the XCD 2,8/65 and the XCD 2,8/135 telephoto lens with X Converter 1,7. The three new lenses and one dedicated teleconverter expand the XCD family to nine different focal lengths.
The XCD 1,9/80 represents a major milestone for Hasselblad with an impressive f/1,9 aperture, Hasselblad’s largest lens aperture, offering an extremely shallow depth of field and light-gathering ability. Thanks to Hasselblad’s optical design expertise and rigorous calibration standards, the XCD 80mm boasts superior optical surface precision, avoiding poor bokeh results or out of focus highlights often seen in high aperture lenses with aspherical surfaces. The lens’ distinct twin motor drive provides quick autofocus performance, while offering a precise manual focus experience. Maximizing the artistic potential of X1D image makers for a stunning shooting experience with a field of view similar to 63mm on a full frame system, it is especially suitable for portrait, nature and product photography with its ability to produce pleasing bokeh through excellent subject isolation and shallow depth of field.
The XCD 2,8/65 is the ideal standard lens in any X System photographer’s kit. With a 50mm full frame equivalency, it’s designed to achieve the ‘normal’ focal length and mimic the human field of view. Thanks to its f/2,8 maximum aperture and 0.5 m (20 in.) minimum focus distance, the XCD 65mm is the versatile option for street, travel and general photography.
Growing the telephoto range, the XCD 2,8/135 and X Converter 1,7 expand the reach of Hasselblad’s X1D-50c. Available as both a paired kit or as a stand-alone lens, the XCD 135mm and dedicated teleconverter have been designed as a cohesive unit to ensure no decrease in image quality when the teleconverter is used. Without the teleconverter, the XCD 135mm has an aperture range of 2,8-32 and a field of view similar to 105mm lenses on full frame cameras and features a minimum focus distance of 1 m. With the X Converter 1,7, the lens’ focal length grows to 230mm (178mm full frame equivalent) with a f/4,8 maximum aperture and minimum focus distance of 1.05 m. The telephoto focal length is ideal for portrait, outdoor, and landscape photographers looking to document details and subjects with stunning image quality.
Like the other XCD lenses, the XCD 80mm, XCD 65mm and XCD 135mm feature an integral central shutter, offering exposure times from 60 minutes to 1/2000s with full flash synchronization through the entire range.
The XCD 80mm, XCD 65mm and the XCD 135mm lenses are now available for pre-ordering and will begin shipping in December 2018.
The XCD 80mm lens has an MSRP of €3,990, $4,845, £3,690, JPY¥ 576,000 (excl. VAT) / CNY¥ 38,500 (incl. VAT).
