The Hasselblad XCD 2,5/90V is a medium telephoto lens with a focal length of 71mm (35mm full-frame equivalent), making it ideal for close-up portraits and still life photography. This focal length and f/2.5 aperture value create a beautiful, soft bokeh that can be used to make the subject stand out.
The lens is quipped with a compact optical design, a small and lightweight focusing module, and an optimized lens shutter. Weighing only 551g, it is 11% lighter than the XCD 3,2/90.
The ability to express the delicate nuances of light and shadow depends on the performance of the lens, and only when the lens has both excellent resolution and color reproduction can a solid foundation for imaging be formed. Medium format sensors have a large sensor size and a high number of pixels, so the conditions for achieving high lens accuracy are strict. Hasselblad engineers have designed lenses that deliver the highest level of optical quality and meet the requirements of 100 million pixel resolution, paying close attention to detail, from selecting high-quality glass to polishing each lens.
Hasselblad XCD Breakdown:
Consisting of nine elements in six groups, including one ED lens and one specially designed large-diameter aspherical lens, this lens is not only compact but also reduces chromatic aberration, and can perform accurate color correction.
The upgraded focusing module uses a linear stepping motor and a lightweight, compact focusing lens group. It is no longer affected by backlash caused by the movement of the lens group, and when combined with the PDAF (phase detection AF) technology installed in the X2D 100C, the focus lens group quickly moves to the in-focus position and stops at the precise position. do. The result is faster, more flexible, and more accurate focusing.
The Tight Lens Shutter
The Hasselblad XCD 2,5/90V lens is equipped with an upgraded large aperture lens shutter. Although it is small, it maintains the same accuracy as the previous model and operates at high speed and quietly, so it does not interfere with shooting. It can also shoot at up to 1/4000 seconds, the fastest speed among medium format lenses, and synchronizes with flash at any shutter speed.
Innovative exterior design
The XCD 2,5/90V is a precision-made metal lens, and in addition to the focus ring, a control ring has been newly added. Both rings are engraved with the Hasselblad logo “H”.
