Equivalent to a full-frame 43mm focal length, the XCD 2,5/55V standard lens produces a viewpoint similar to the human eye. This perspective, combined with the soft bokeh effect from the large f/2.5 aperture, makes this lens an outstanding option for full or half-length portraits and ideal for shooting documentaries, still life, or daily photography.
When using the XCD 2,5/55V lens, the narrow aperture and leaf shutter blades can create Hasselblad's hallmark eight-point starburst effect on bright light sources. With its compact optical design, small and lightweight focusing module, and optimized leaf shutter, XCD 2,5/55V weighs only 372g but delivers top-class optical performance.
Capturing the most subtle nuances of light and shadow begins with the lens. Only with excellent resolution and color reproduction can it provide a solid foundation for imaging. A medium format sensor has a large area and a high pixel density, posing stringent requirements for the precision of the lens. Starting with the selection of high-quality glass, Hasselblad engineers carefully grind each lens to perfect its optical quality and meet the resolution requirements of 100 million pixels.
The XCD 2,5/55V lens features nine elements in eight groups, including two aspherical elements, one ED element, and one specially made large-diameter aspherical element.
With a thoughtfully crafted arrangement, the lens has not only a compact size but also improves light transmittance and suppresses chromatic dispersion. Combining the XCD 2,5/55V with a Hasselblad mirrorless medium format camera yields stunning results.
The upgraded focusing module adopts a linear stepping motor and a lighter, smaller focusing lens group. These changes effectively eliminate any backlash from the lens group moving and, coupled with the PDAF technology of the X2D 100C, mean the focusing lens group can quickly reach the focusing position and achieve a precise stop. Resulting in fast, flexible, and accurate focusing.
The leaf shutter is a powerful component in Hasselblad's medium format system. The XCD 2,5/55V lens is equipped with an upgraded leaf shutter that, while smaller, maintains the same precision performance as its predecessors and is fast and quiet to avoid disturbance when shooting. In addition, this ultra-small shutter captures up to 1/2000s and delivers flash synchronization at all speeds.
XCD 2,5/55V is a precision-crafted metal lens with a focus ring and a newly added control ring. Both rings are delicately engraved with a Hasselblad "H" logo print. The design is created using a precise 0.3mm drill bit and is a nod to the memorable look of the HC/HCD lenses. Whether paired with X-system or 907X cameras, this new lens is a homage to the past while standing on its own as a unique, elegant statement.
The lens is designed to feel comfortable and intuitive in hand to fully support and not distract from the creative process. The tactile mechanics of the focus and control rings are fine-tuned for a smooth and satisfying experience. A simple push and pull of the focus ring changes from AF to MF mode, where intuitive scale marks keep focus distance and DOF clear at a glance. The control ring can be customized for quick access to preferred functions, making shooting more convenient and efficient.
The XCD 2,5/55V lens features nine elements in eight groups,

2,5/55V can reach a shutter speed up to 1/2000s and delivers flash synchronization at all speeds. The shutter is fast and quiet and is complemented by the newly designed focusing module
delivering quick and accurate focusing. The XCD 2,5/55V the lens has both a focus ring and a lens control ring. Changing
between AF and MF is achieved by a convenient push and pull
of the focus ring. In MF mode, easily check the focus distance
and DOF readings. The control ring can be customized for
quick access to your preferred function.
