    I've been using a Hasselblad flexbody for a few months now and love it. Recently, I scored a lovely 120mm macro lens and since I have yet to receive it, I am wondering how close I can focus with the lens on the flexbody?

    Thanks, david

    I don't know specifics, but the bellows length and images circle are what you need to pay attention to. with the bellows extended you will have to consider light fall off based on inverse square law.

    If you want to get close to get a 50 CF lens and a set of extension tubes. The 55 you can get literally right on top of your subject. To close. A 16 is nice but at times I wish I had a 21. Anyway that is how I do it.
