Hasselblad HCD 28mm f/4.0 Wide Angle Prime Lens

You Pay: $5,910.00
Product Highlights
  • Rear-Focusing 37x49mm Format Lens
  • Aperture Range: f/4.0-32
  • For Hasselblad H3D / HD4 Cameras
  • Electronic Shutter & Multi-Coated Lenses
  • Focus Drive Motor & Instant Manual Focus
  • Filter Thread Diameter: 95mm
  • Minimum Focusing Distance: 13.8"

The HCD 28mm f/4.0 Wide Angle Prime Lens from Hasselblad is a rear-focusing lens designed specifically for digital use on H-series Hasselblad cameras, including the H3D, HD4 and H2F. Because of this, the lens is not compatible with the Hasselblad 1.7x Converter, or the HM 16-32 and HMi 100 film magazines.

All HCD lenses have electronic shutter mechanisms and feature Multi Coating for efficient stray light elimination, an integral focus drive motor, and instant access to manual focus without switching between manual and auto focus

It is constructed with metal wherever possible, rather than plastic, in order to ensure reliability and durability year after year. In addition, the special optical design of the lens provides a uniquely soft, smooth quality to the blurred or out-of-focus areas of the image. It supports 95mm threaded filters and includes lens shade and bayonet mount and can be reverse mounted for transport.

Rear-Focusing 37x49mm Format Lens
The HCD 28mm lens is designed solely for digital use, and this means that the lens is designed for a format of 37x49mm - it does not cover the 41.5x56mm film format.
For Hasselblad H3D / HD4 Cameras
The HCD 28mm f/4 is designed for use on the Hasselblad H3D, H4D and the H2F cameras. This lens is designed solely for digital use. This means that the lens is designed for a format of 37 x 49mm and does not cover the film format (41.5 x 56mm). The function is therefore disabled when using a film magazine.
Electronic Shutter, Multi-Coated Lenses
All HCD lenses have electronic shutter mechanisms and feature Multi Coating for efficient stray light elimination
Focus Drive Motor & Instant Manual Focus
Its integral focus drive motor provides accurate auto focus when you need it, with instant access to manual focus without having to take time switching between them.
Metal & Plastic Lens Construction
Putting their attention onto long-term reliability and durability, Hasselblad built this HCD lens using metal, not plastic, wherever possible. In addition, the special optical design of the lenses provides a uniquely soft, smooth quality to the blurred or out-of-focus bokeh areas of the image.
Filter Thread Diameter: 95mm
The lens uses threaded filters and includes lens caps, as well as a bayonet mount lens hood that can be reverse mounted for transport.

        Comments about Hasselblad HCD 28mm f/4.0 Wide Angle Prime Lens:

        I am an expressionist photographer who likes to start with a well-composed, well-exposed, well-conceived straight image before I begin to manipulate it in my "evil laboratory." This lens has a tendency to make even the most mundane straight subjects look extraordinary. When I first got it, I thought it might be too heavy to be practical handheld (it is a LOT of glass), but that is absolutely not the case because the lens is impeccably balanced. If I have a complaint at all, it is that the lens is so much fun that I have to make myself opt another lens in order to diversify my work.

              Comments about Hasselblad HCD 28mm f/4.0 Wide Angle Prime Lens:

              This is a very sharp lens. Even though I use this on a cropped sensor (33x44mm) it is still very wide. It is a great lens to use for landscape photography, and works very well with the HTS 1.5.

                Uniquely wide lens for medium format. Although controversial at times the specimen I received is sharp and provides a unique perspective.

                  I use this lens on my H4D-40 for architecture, landscape, and group pictures. This lens delivers very well corrected images, is light weight and very sharp. The size and weight also make this lens easy to pack in your bag. For landscape its almost a required lens IMHO.
