Hasselblad XCD 65mm f/2.8 Aperture Series: Survivor Pine on Rock Outcrop (Hasselblad X1D II 50C)

This aperture series from f/2.8 through f/11 evaluates relatively close-range performance of the Hasselblad XCD 65mm f/2.8 including sharpness and overall lens correction, lens symmetry, focus shift and field curvature.

I comment on exposure consistency across apertures as well as vignetting correction, which seems broken in Adobe Camera Raw for the Hasselblad XCD 65mm f/2.8.

Hasselblad XCD 65mm f/2.8 Aperture Series: Survivor Pine on Rock Outcrop

Includes images from f/2.8 through f/11 at up to full camera resolution.

The about $2750 Hasselblad XCD 65mm f/2.8 might be the best value in the lens lineup! Performance is so strong that a 100-megapixel sensor could capture considerably more detail. Which makes it imperative for Hasselblad to issue a camera with a 100MP sensor, which to me would make the appeal of the system far greater, given the extreme lens quality and outstanding quality control versus Fujifilm medium format.
