This first article in the series on adapted lenses for the Hasselblad X1D 50c/X1D 50c mark II medium format digital camera will cover a set of lenses for the Canon FD mount that Canon used before switching to the EOS line of cameras with their EF and EFS mounts.

Furthermore, the article on adapting Canon FD glass is the first in a series of articles on adapting vintage glass to the Hasselblad X1D mark II camera.
