Ideally suited for portraiture and landscape, the XCD 135mm f/2.8 Lens with X Converter 1.7x from Hasselblad is a short telephoto prime bundled with a dedicated 1.7x teleconverter. With X-series mirrorless medium format cameras, the lens itself offers a 105mm equivalent focal length, and when the teleconverter is in place, this equivalent focal length is increased to 178mm.

Like other XCD lenses, the 135mm f/2.8 has an integrated Central Lens Shutter that is capable of shutter speeds up to 1/2000 sec with flash sync at all speeds, and its internal autofocus design can be manually overridden for precise manual focusing control.
