The new-style body will be exactly the same as the existing chrome-topped X1D but will come kitted with a XCD 45mm f/3.5 lens and a three-year warranty instead of two. The £8990+VAT kit comes in a special box and includes a leather hand strap.

Hasselblad has also released details of the 30mm lens that was informally announced at the time of the X1D launch – the third in the XCD range for the 50-megapixel mirrorless camera.

The XCD 30mm f/3.5 has the same 83° angle of view you’d expect from a 24mm lens on a 35mm system camera.

The aperture range finishes at f/32 and the closest focusing distance is 0.4m.

The lens weighs 550g and takes 77mm screw-in filters.

No price has been released as yet.
