Widest Hasselblad Lens Ever: the XCD 21mm f/4

0Share

Expanding Hasselblad's mirrorless system with an expansive ultra-wide-angle lens, the XCD 21mm f/4 is the widest lens the famed Swedish manufacturer has ever produced. Designed for the svelte X1D-50c medium format camera, this 17mm equivalent lens matches the portable form factor and is ideally suited for landscape, architecture, and interior photography. The ultra-wide field of view is complemented by the inclusion of two aspherical elements, which help to control distortion and spherical aberrations to realize a high degree of sharpness and accurate rendering. Beyond the distinguished optics, the calling card of all XCD lenses must be the inclusion of a leaf shutter for flash synchronization at all shutter speeds up to 1/2000 of a second. Additionally, this lens features an internal autofocus design to maintain its overall length during use and offers full-time manual focus override, along with a minimum focusing distance of just 1'.
