    H5X Open System

    There is a rumor out there right now that Hassy will "open" up their H5 line to accept third party backs. New Photokina rumor: Hasselblad to open their H5 system for 3rd party digital backs? | Photo Rumors Does anyone know if an IQ180 full frame sensor would even be covered by the lens circle out of the H5D camera?

    Yes, it will work fine. Although from memory the 28mm and 35-90mm lenses are optimised for 1.1x crop.

    Well that is a nice development for those of us who were offered a soon to be released camera body when we purchased our IQ180's.

    I would still prefer a new body from Phase One - as all my lenses are for Phase One - but I have become patient so it will take a fairly good offer to prise out any more dollars from my wallet.

    Sounds like a reaction to PhaseOne finally releasing a new camera at Photokina *fingers crossed*

    So is the HCD-24mm.

    Anything with a "D" after the HC designation is optimized for a 1.1X "Digital" crop factor. So a HCD-24/4 is roughly equivalent to a 26.4mm on a H5X with a 60 or 80 meg back.

    All of the lenses with the prefix "HC" cover the full 645 area as they were initially developed to cover 645 film format. Many of those have been updated optically for high resolution digital capture, but retained their full frame coverage: the 50/3.5-II, 120/4-II macro, 150/3.2N have all been optically tweaked or completely revamped in particular, the new HC-50-II was a significant improvement over the previous version, and has its own dedicated close up unit that allows really close focus with a WA perspective.
