Meet the world’s smallest Medium Format Lens

Hasselblad is not holding back at the start of the year and has just released the smallest digital medium format lens ever. The 45mm f4 prime wide-angle lens is 320 grams and 47mm deep.

Designed for the Hasselblad X system, the lens has autofocus and two aspherical elements. Like some of the previous X system lenses, this one also has a leaf shutter to enable flash sync speeds of 1/2000s. It also incorporates a mechanical focus ring for that smooth manual focus experience.

Hasselblad is also claiming quieter autofocus which should make this a nice setup for intimate cozy environments. The lens costs $1099 and will ship at the end of January.
