This tiny and compact autofocus lens is only 1.85in/47mm long for a weight of 0.7lbs/320g. The lens design consists of 9 elements in 7 groups with two aspherical elements. The minimum focusing distance is pretty small at only 13.8in/35cm, which is handy as an everyday lens. The front filter is 62mm.

If you are doing street photography, Hasselblad claims that “thanks to evolved designs, both the autofocus motor and leaf shutter have been reduced in audible noise.”
