Hasselblad has just announced the release of two new XCD lenses.

The new 135mm f/2.8 features a dedicated 1.7x converter that extends the focal length to 230mm at f/4.8.

The second lens, an 80mm, promises to be the largest aperture lens Hasselblad has ever produced, more details on this will follow soon.

As with the rest of the XCD lens range, these new models will feature an integral central shutter enabling a wide shutter speed range and full flash synchronisation up to 1/2000th of a second.

In addition to the release of the two new lenses, the XCD 22mm has been updated to 21mm for a better wide-angle experience.
