I have become quite fond of the images shot with adapted lenses on my Hasselblad X system cameras. I use both old vintage lenses, some up to 60 or even 70 years old, and newer lenses like Canon EF lenses, some of which works with electronic connection for both aperture control, autofocus, and deliver EXIF data to the camera for easier handling and retrieval from archives. The first reviews are done on the Hasselblad X1D mark ii, but more recently I bought the 100 mpx version, the Hasselblad X2D, and going forward the reviews will primarily be done on this more demanding camera. Nevertheless, some reviews will involve the X1D as video is not implemented on the X2D, and there’s no crop modes like X-Pan on the X2D (so far, but might be implemented in future firmware releases).

In this series of articles, I will document my experience with these lenses. If you have lenses, that you would like to have reviewed, please don’t hesitate to contact me or send me the lens, if it’s in your possession.

Furthermore, I am beginning to document these lens reviews also on youtube on my channel Key2Adventure, where more and more reviews will be appearing.

The written reviews are so far:

Canon FD lenses on the Hasselblad X1D mark ii

Low/non brand lenses on the Hasselblad X1D mark ii (including some Vivitar and Tamron lenses)

Different brand lenses on the Hasselblad X1D mark ii (including Helios, Cosina, Canon FD 85mm f1.2)

Yashica and Olympus lenses on the Hasselblad X1D mark ii

Minolta and Nikon lenses on the Hasselblad X1D mark ii

That’s it for now, but further reviews will be coming, and I will also be reviewing the adapter with electronic contacts for Canon EF lenses.
