Testing Started: Hasselblad X1D II 50C with Hasselblad XCD 65mm f/2.8, Hasselblad XCD 80mm f/1.9, Hasselblad XCD 135mm f/2.8
I’ve just started testing the Hasselblad X1D II 50C with Hasselblad XCD 65mm f/2.8, Hasselblad XCD 80mm f/1.9, Hasselblad XCD 135mm f/2.8. I am working directly with Hasselblad to get the Hasselblad XCD 45mm f/4 P on loan, but the whole COVID-19 situation is backing up shipping on gear.
I have to do a major resupply today and tomorrow (water, fuel, food, champagne and wine of course), but there should be a ton of coverage in coming ten days.
These Hasselblad XCD lenses are insanely sharp even wide open. Best in the business for medium format, on both sharpness and quality control (so far I see no lens skew issues). I do wish they had aperture rings though and I do wish Hasselblad would deliver a 100MP sensor camera body.
