Thanks very much

Neil

Have a look at the H6D-100c launch photos - the photos by Karl Taylor of the paint splashes are done with the 150mm. They are impeccable.

You can see them in the Hasselblad Lens Brochure:

Hi Bo,

Thanks for the link. Just to say, I have a criterion for an excellent lens:

  • MTF > 0.9 for 10 lp/mm
  • MTF > 0.8 for 20 lp/mm
  • MTF > 0.6 for 40 lp/mm

That means both sagittal and tangential curves accord the field. Without doubt many of the HC lenses are excellent. But also note how good the X-lenses are! They of course need to be great to play well with the forthcoming 100 MP-backs.

I would say that all that stuff with sharpness is mostly interesting if you print large. Web side samples don't say anything about sharpness.

Best regards
Erik

A blue label dos not mean a great lens. A bit similar, Pentax did put a "Schneider" label on some of it's lenses.

a joke from that time ( www.pentaxforums.com/forums/870985-post52.html )

Quote
Here's how Samsung gets Schneider Kreuznach to make lenses for 'em:

SAMSUNG: "We're making a play, like every other man and his giant-electronics-corporation dog, for the digital camera market. Unfortunately, we have zero credibility in the camera industry, and, well, that's where you come in..."

SCHNEIDER KREUZNACH: "NEIN! Ve are a respected European opticz company, with many years of fine tradition und expertise in the field..."

Samsung drops, with a surprisingly loud thud, a briefcase on the conference table. It pops open, revealing row upon row of shiny Euro notes, neatly bundled in 10000-Euro lots

SK: "...and as such vill not be villing to zell our name for use on some cheap, mass-produced cameras! Our lens are a ground by magic elves, und coated vith ze finest, purest dragon's urine..."

Samsung reaches into its pocket, and pulls out a handful of diamonds, water clear, each the size of a human testicle, and tumbles them onto the briefcase

SK: "Our lenses are hand-assembled by virgins! The lens barrels are polished on zeir thighs!"

Samsung whistles, and a team of sunglass-wearing security guards with earpieces screwed into their ears, wielding submachine guns, enter the room. They briefly check the corners, the faces of those at the conference table, then nod and mutter into their lapels. Seconds later, a powered trolley laden with gold bullion enters the room, and is placed at the head of the table.

SK: "EACH LENS IS HAND-TESTED BY ZE POPE!"

Samsung pulls a share certificate from his pocket. Laying it next to the briefcase, it reads: "COCA-COLA: 250,000 Shares".

SK: "I look forward to working vith you, Samsung. Here's the TIFF file of our logo. Stick it vhere you vant. Guten tag!"

FWIW the paint splash photos by Mr. Taylor are also taken with the H6D-50c (as it says in the brochure) and not the 100c.
