Built for the demanding photographer
The Hasselblad XCD lenses are some of the finest optics available on the market today. These lenses, which are all designed in Sweden, have all gone through a stringent development, testing and production process to ensure they satisfy the demands of high end mirrorless digital capture, and high resolution sensors.
The XCD 21mm is the ultra wide-angle lens for the X1D. Its extremely short focal length provides a 17mm full frame equivalent lens, making it perfect for landscape and architecture photography. The lens features a 32 cm close distance setting (1:10 image scale) and an aperture range between 4 and 32. The XCD 21mm features full automatic focusing as well as instant manual focus.
As part of the X System lens range, its lightweight and compact size perfectly complements the compact X1D body. Like the other XCD lenses, the XCD 21mm lens contains a lens shutter delivering shutter speeds from 60 minutes to 1/2000 second. Synchronizing with flash at all speeds allows full creative freedom when mixing flash and daylight. The lens shutter also generates very little vibration providing hand-held shots with perfect sharpness.
