      News

    Hasselblad has presented three new lenses for medium-format cameras: XCD 80mm f/1.9, 65mm f/2.8 and 135mm f/2.8.

     

    XCD 80mm f/1.9 is the brightest lens in the company's history which should appear in the center of attention of portrait photographers. The lens offers the equivalent of 63mm and the focus depth comparable to full-frame f/1.5 lenses. 

     

    The optical system of the lens is based on fourteen elements placed in nine groups. Sharp photographs can be taken from the minimum distance of 70cm. The lens' aperture can be closed up to the value of f/32. The aperture fulfills the function of the central shutter offering flash synchronization with the times up to 1/2000s.
