All my Hasselblad X1D reviews

Hello everyone,

during the 1.5 year that I have been using the Hasselblad X1D exclusively, I managed to write reviews for the original X1D, the X1D II, and the 21mm, 30mm, 45mm, 65mm, 90mm, 135mm and 35-75mm XCD lenses. All reviews have been written under the point of view of a landscape photographer. You can find them following this link:

Hope you'll enjoy the writings and find them useful! Best regards,



Hi Vieri,

you shoot mainly landscape. What was for you the most important criteria to switch from Leica S to X1D and not to other Hasselblad MF bodies?

I would have thought that the majority of X1D-photographers would buy the X1D more for street work/ casual photography?

Hi Dirk,

IMHO, the X1D is a perfect camera for landscape: light, small, great lenses. Not a great camera for street work: slow, slow lenses. Hope this helps, best regards
