Hasselblad XCD 80mm f/1.9

MTF for Hasselblad XCD 80mm f/1.9

MTF (calculated* not measured) is shown below at f/1.9 and f/5.6.

Performance at f/1.9 is remarkably strong for what it is, but stopping down to f/5.6 delivers outstanding results across the field with apparently only very mild field curvature in the mid zones and strictly controlled astigmatism.

While Hasselblad does not provide MTF for f/2.8 and f/4, it is likely that f/2.8 bumps things up substantially and that would make the 80/1.9 a terrific lens for many purposes.

Although performance falls off to the outer zones at f/1.9, it is still very good, and results with centered subjects should be very pleasing.
