Covering a useful wide-angle to short-telephoto range, the XCD 35-75mm f/3.5-4.5 from Hasselblad is a 28-58mm-equivalent zoom designed for X-series mirrorless medium format cameras. The useful zoom range is complemented by an overall compact, lightweight design that makes this lens especially suitable for travel applications. Its optical design incorporates a pair of aspherical elements, which help to reduce distortion and spherical aberrations throughout the zoom range in order to achieve a high degree of sharpness and accurate rendering. Like other XCD lenses, the 35-75mm f/3.5-4.5 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 autofocus system, which uses an internal focusing design, can be manually overridden for fine-tuned focusing control.

Hasselblad XCD 35-75mm f/3.5-4.5 Reviews
I would call this a PRIME zoom lens!
The only zoom for the X1D and it's great
Though I prefer doing landscape photography, I tend to use this more for portraiture and general use. It's easy to see these as something like a kit lens, but it excels in everything the kit lens does. Obviously, with it being the X1D, these lenses aren't the best for wildlife, sports, or anything with unpredictable movement because of the slow focus speed, but when in focus, everything is tack-sharp to the edges and reproduces the most accurate color I've seen in nearly any lens of its type. The focus by wire is great, but know that this means if you're doing it manually and in the dim light, it may be hard to tell if you've nailed it because you'd be relying on a digital viewfinder or a lcd screen on the back, which will create noise so that you can see what you're looking at. In DSLRs, this wasn't a problem at all, having an optical viewfinder. The downside I have of this actually has to do with the lens hood. After months of use, it's still not easy to put on and takes a lot of fiddling around. If done incorrectly, you will actually see it in your composition. I've never once had a lens where I wondered if I needed to see a youtube tutorial over putting on the lens hood. This lens is the perfect one to help complete your range without spending thousands on primes and you're not a stickler for extreme bokeh.
Incredible lens definition.
Normally zoom lenses do not have as much definition as prime lenses. However this lens is the big exception. It is the best lens I have ever owned in my 40 years as a photographer.
