The Hasselblad 21mm f/4 is the widest lens Hasselblad has produced to date. The closest focal range this would come close to would be the Fujifilm 23mm GFX.

This lens has a full frame equivalent to about 17mm - it is wide. Its also extremely impressive in terms of performance. This is a difficult lens to design within the limitations of portability, price, and fitting in with the rest of the system. The engineers at Hasselblad have done a brilliant job with this lens.

Its very much a technical lens with incredible distortion control and edge to edge sharpness. The 21mm f/4 is perfect for architectural photography - particularly interiors and tight spaces that can be challenging to photograph.

The lens features 13 elements in 9 groups, 2 aspherical elements, an aperture range of f/4 to f/32, central lens shutter with up to 1/2000 sec flash sync, internal focusing with manual focus override and a front filter threading of 77mm.

Hasselblad were kind enough to loan me one from the first production run for a week to test.
