    Hasselblad XCD Lenses Roadmap

      Gear

    Hasselblad has presented its plans concerning the introduction of new lenses with XCD mounts to the mirrorless medium-format system. In this way the company wants to encourage potential buyers to invest in the system, which looks quite modest so far.

    The first lens from the announced pair which is going to appear on the market is XCD 135mm f/2.8 and the dedicated 1.7x teleconverter, which will change the lens into 230mm f/4.8. Similarly to the previous lenses from the system, this one will also offer a central shutter, which will enable flash synchronization in up to 1/2000 s.

    The 80mm lens is also going to be very interesting. As the producer assures, it’s going to be the brightest lens it has ever produced.

    Apart from that, in 2018 we can also expect the following lenses: 65mm f/2.8, 35-75mm f/3.5-4.5 and 21mm f/4.

    2). Hasselblad XCD Lens Roadmap


    All of the previously announced lenses are to appear on the market in the first half of 2018, excluding 80mm lens, which is going to appear on sale in the second half of the next year.

    Unfortunately, as for now, we don’t know the prices of the lenses.

      The 'Phocus' software, used for the edition  of RAW photographs, should help in  obtaining perfect quality within the whole field. It is also supposed to correct the distortion of the lens.
