Hasselblad XCD 38mm f/2.5 Aperture Series: Wooden Boardwalk, Dusk (X2D)

This page presents evaluates the Hasselblad XCD 38mm f/2.5 from f/2.5 to f/11, with a special attention to its pronounced central rearward focus shift, so strong as to guarantee inferior results if not compensated-for by the photographer. The XCD 38/2.5 is bitingly sharp, but if that sharpness lands in the wrong place then it’s not.

This series is also an excellent demonstration of the limits of depth of field, even at 38mm and f/11. No focus stacking was feasible.

Also examined is the Hasselblad X2D image quality with long exposures, ranging from 18 seconds at f/2.5 to 144 seconds at f/11. The Hasselblad X2D lacks an in-camera long exposure noise reduction (black frame) feature. How does it do?

Hasselblad XCD 38mm f/2.5 Aperture Series: Wooden Boardwalk, Dusk

Includes images up to full camera resolution from f/2.5 to f/11, plus crops.

Many thanks to B&H Photo for loaning the X2D and lenses. Please use links on this site to buy.
