Hasselblad XCD 65mm f/2.8 Reviews

A must have lens

By Mark

Comparable to a 50 in a Full Frame 35 camera, this is the first lens I reach for almost every day... beautifully engineered, it is a state of the art.

Incredibly Sharp

This lens is incredibly sharp. Much more so than the 45p in my opinion. There is nothing more I can ask of this thing. The f2.8 is very appreciated!

Sharp as they get!

Wow! I enjoy and use this lens considerably more than the XCD 80mm and the XCD 45p in my bag. Sharpness is best ever made in my opinion.

Fantastic X series normal lens

The XCD 65mm is a must-have normal lens for the Hasselblad X Series. Truly the beat all around lens for the X1D and X1D II. Producing beautiful detail and bokeh if used for portrait work. It’s no surprise this owns is award winning.

Amazing sharpness and clarity make this lens a favorite for me.

Ideal all around focal length for portraits

This is my second lens for the X1D II. The 65mm is sharper and easier to autofocus than the 45P. I love the 45P for the way it captures some of the environment with the subject but I usually need to manually zoom focus to be sure the subject is sharp. With this 65mm lens, I get great results using autofocus as long as the subject is well lit. This faster f2.8 lens helps to isolate the subject from the background. It is super sharp even wide open too. A bit noisier while focusing and heavier than the 45P but well worth it with the beautiful images it produces. I am still amazed at the beautiful colors this camera system produces and the consistency between lenses. This one is a gem!

Nothing Normal About It

My 65mm f2.8 is the new normal in a medium-format digital world.

Very sharp. Very very sharp.

This is my second lens after the 45P and I haven't gone back to it since. Although it is slightly heavier/bulkier than the 45, the extra weight is definitely good trade off for this incredibly sharp lens. I'm still holding on to the wide angle because I'm sure there will be a time when I'll need it but this lens truly does cover all the bases day to day. The lens hood that is included is very high quality as well, made of metal so it has some extra protection when it's on backwards.

Isn't the 65 mm XCD lens a 50 mm equivalent, not 35 mm? Your key features listing has an error, I believe.
Asked by: wade
The 35mm refers to the film/sensor format, not the equivalent focal length.
