An all-arounder for the Hasselblad X-series of medium format mirrorless cameras, the XCD 65mm f/2.8 is a 50mm-equivalent prime offering a natural field of view to suit working in a broad variety of shooting situations. The f/2.8 maximum aperture strikes a balance between a sleek form factor and being adept in difficult lighting conditions. For working with close-up subjects, a minimum focusing distance of 1.6' is possible and a 10-elements-in-six-groups optical design helps to realize high sharpness and clarity. Like other XCD lenses, the 65mm f/2.8 has an integrated Central Lens Shutter that is capable of shutter speeds up to 1/2000 sec with flash sync at all speeds, and its internal autofocus design can be manually overridden for precise manual focusing control.

Hasselblad XCD 65mm f/2.8 Reviews
Cc'd 65mm lens
Super sharp and lightweight. Great lens
Superb Image Quality
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.
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!
This was my favorite lens on the X1DII
I owned several lenses during my time with the X1DII and this was my favorite. The angle of view suited my style of shooting, the f2.8 was adequate, the fit and finish of the lens were world class, and the image quality was unbeatable. Much to my surprise I also found that I enjoyed the clean feel of the lens with no aperture rings or other protrusions.
A must have lens
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.
