    Hi everyone,

    I recently purchased a Hasselblad 500cm with 80mm Planar T* lens. I find the information on these lenses a little unclear. I bought a step-up (60-67) so that I could use my existing filters, but the ring does not fit. It's meant to be a Hasselblad B60 fitting.

    I find all the C/CF/CFE/CFI/CF* information a little confusing.

    Can anyone help me clarify which lens I have and what filters/step-up ring mount it has?

    Many thanks.

    I have this lens...

    it looks like 80mm f2.8 C Planar, if you can see red letter "T*" on the black ring around the front element, it has T* multicoating. You can use B50 (Bay 50) filters.

    Thank you for the reply. It is indeed a T* lens. Does that make it a CFT?

    It's definitely not a CF lens. It would be a C T*.

    Yes, you need the B50-67 conversion ring, not the B60. The older Hasselblad lenses took a smaller filter size.
