Hasselblad Announcement! 3 Primes and 1 Zoom XCD Lenses

So it looks like there is some great news for anyone who adopted the Hasselblad mirrorless medium format X system. Hasselblad has announced 3 Primes and 1 Zoom XCD Lenses and it looks like 1 will be available immediately and the other to follow later in 2017!

The 4 lenses are as follows, XCD 35-75mm zoom, XCD 65mm, XCD 22mm ultra wide angle and the XCD 120mm f3.5 macro lens. At this point the 120mm is the lens that is currently available, but it sounds like we can expect the rest of the lenses sooner than later.

The 120mm macro is advertised as being perfect for macro work with a 1:2 reproduction ratio and also as a mid telephoto lens foe portraits and other photography requiring a longer focal length. The lens also features an integrated shutter which offers full flash synchronization up to 1/2000th of a second.

By the beginning of 2018 Hasselblad says that the X1D will have access to 7 dedicated XCD lenses and all twelve HC/HCD lenses using the XH lens adapter.
