Hasselblad XCD 30mm f/3.5 vs XCD 45mm f/3.5: Frosty Picnic Table.

See my Hasselblad X1D wish list.

This comparison looks at sharpness and color correction differences between the Hasselblad XCD 30mm f/3.5 and the Hasselblad XCD 45mm f/3.5. I chose bluish morning lighting for this comparison, though it turns out that the blue-heavy spectrum is not at issue.

Hasselblad XCD 30/3.5 Sharpness and Color Correction vs XCD 45/3.5: Frosty Picnic Table

There is a striking difference in performance, one commensurate with the relative prices of the lenses. I know which lens I’d want to own first!

Separately, I explore dynamic range in a real-world scene:
