This retro focus lens has a 95 Degree diagonal angle of view making it the most extreme wide-angle lens presently available in the medium-format. Outstanding results are achieved throughout the focusing range exhibiting excellent corner-to-corner sharpness. Whether through requirement or for effect, this lens can prove very useful for a wide range of assignments.
I've shot this lens on the H4D-40 for over a year now and I just love the look. It's similar in look to a 17.5mm in full frame 35mm, but the H4D-40 adds a 1.3x crop factor making it more like a 23mm comparatively speaking. For landscapes it's beautiful and just tack sharp. There is the natural wide angle perspective exaggeration one finds with any 24mm or wider lens, but you can still use it for people if you keep them towards the center of the frame.
Adobe Lightroom's Lens Correction module addresses the exaggeration extremely well, as does Adobe Camera Raw. As yet, DxO Optics does not have modules for Hasselblad lenses so I cannot use their incredible DNG converter.
Regardless, if you are shooting medium format digital and will use Hasselblad glass this is an incredible lens. Highly recommended.
