    I was just wondering if anyone owns one of the Kiev Hasselblad NC-2 Prism copies. Is it worth buying a brand new Kiev or buying a cosmetically bad, but functionally excellent original Hasselblad NC-2? Obviously, the Hasselblad is much better quality, but all I'm doing is composing and focusing. Any thoughts?

    Just as a note: there is a bargain grade one at KEH for the same price as a new Kiev. What do you think, should I just go for the KEH one?
