Hasselblad has continued to put effort behind their mirrorless medium format camera, the X1D, by announcing a lens lineup that continues through the next twelve months. The first lens announced, and the one that will be most immediately available, is the 120mm f/3.5 macro, a lens Hasselblad says, "brings together the compact format of the XCD range with the maximum optical quality across the frame with a flat image field." The lens is suitable for both close-up work with a 1:2 image scale, and also doubles as a mid-range telephoto lens for portrait photography. Auto or manual focusing goes from infinity to 1:2 without the need for extension tubes.
Like the other lenses for the X1D, the 120mm macro has a built-in shutter which allows a wide range of shutter speeds, and more importantly, grants full flash sync up to 1/2000th of a second.
- Max aperture: f/3.5
- Min Aperture: f/32
- Image scale: 1:2
- Angle of view: (diag/hor/ver): 26°/21°/16°
- Integral central shutter
- Full flash synchronization up to 1/2000 sec
- Size: diam 81 mm, length 150 mm
- Weight: 970 g
Over the next 12 months, Hasselblad will also launch the XCD 35-75mm Zoom, XCD 65mm, and XCD 22mm Wide Angle lenses. By the beginning of 2018, the X1D will have seven dedicated XCD lenses and all twelve HC/HCD lenses using the XH lens adapter.
