The HCD 24mm f/4.8 Wide Angle Prime Lens from Hasselblad is a rear-focusing lens designed specifically for digital use on H-series Hasselblad cameras, including the H4X, H2D, H3D, H4D and H5D. Because of this, the lens is not compatible with the Hasselblad 1.7x Converter or film magazines.
It is constructed with metal wherever possible, rather than plastic, in order to ensure reliability and durability year after year. It has 14 glass elements in 11 groups, arranged in a rear-focusing type design. In addition, the special optical design of the lens provides a uniquely soft, smooth quality to the blurred or out-of-focus areas of the image. It supports 95mm threaded filters and includes 105 and 112mm step-up filter adapters.
All HCD lenses have electronic shutter mechanisms and feature multi-coatings for efficient stray light elimination, an integral focus drive motor, and instant access to manual focus without switching between manual and auto focus.

Metal & Plastic Lens Construction
Putting their attention onto long-term reliability and durability, Hasselblad built this HCD lens using metal, not plastic, wherever possible. In addition, the special optical design of the lenses provides a uniquely soft, smooth quality to the blurred or out-of-focus bokeh areas of the image.
The lens uses threaded filters and includes lens caps, as well as a bayonet mount lens hood that can be reverse mounted for transport. The 95mm filter thread works with 40MP (32.9 x 43.8) formats and the 105mm filter adapter is used on 50MP (49.1 x 36.7). For 60MP (53.7 x 40.2) and HTS 1.5x formats use the 112mm filter adapter.
18mm (35mm Equivalent) Lens
Having compared the horizontal coverage between 37x39 and 24x36, this lens' 24mm focal length is rated at the 35mm equivalent of an 18mm lens on a full-frame DSLR camera.
