Precision Optics, Outstanding Imagery

Capturing the most subtle nuances of light and shadow begins with the lens. Only with excellent resolution and colour reproduction can it provide a solid foundation for imaging. A medium format sensor has a large area and a high pixel density, posing stringent requirements for the precision of the lens. Starting with the selection of high-quality glass, Hasselblad engineers carefully grind each lens to perfect its optical quality and meet the resolution requirements of 100 million pixels.

The XCD 2,5/38V lens features ten elements in nine groups, including three aspherical elements and three ED elements. With a thoughtfully crafted arrangement, the lens has not only a compact size, but also improves light transmittance and suppresses chromatic dispersion. Combining XCD 2,5/38V with a Hasselblad mirrorless medium format camera yields stunning results.

New Focusing Module: Fast, Light, Accurate

The upgraded focusing module adopts a linear stepping motor and a lighter, smaller focusing lens group. These changes effectively eliminate any backlash from the lens group moving and, coupled with the PDAF technology of the X2D 100C, meaning the focusing lens group can quickly reach the focusing position and achieve a precise stop. Resulting in fast, flexible, and accurate focusing.

Smaller Leaf Shutter, Powerful and Professional Assistance

The leaf shutter is a powerful component in Hasselblad's medium format system. The XCD 2,5/38V lens is equipped with an upgraded leaf shutter that, while smaller, maintains the same precision performance as its predecessors and is fast and quiet to avoid disturbance when shooting. In addition, this ultra-small shutter captures at up to 1/2000s and delivers flash synchronisation at all speeds.

A Familiar Yet New Industrial Aesthetic

XCD 2,5/38V is a precision-crafted metal lens with a focus ring and a newly added control ring. Whether paired with X-system or 907X cameras, this new lens is both a homage to the past while standing on its own as a unique, elegant statement.

Convenient and Intuitive Control

The lens is designed to feel comfortable and intuitive in hand to fully support and not distract from the creative process. The tactile mechanics of the focus and control rings are fine-tuned for a smooth and satisfying experience. A simple push and pull of the focus ring changes from AF to MF mode, where intuitive scale marks keep focus distance and DOF clear at a glance. The control ring can be customised for quick access to preferred functions, making shooting more convenient and efficient.
