    I am now the proud owner of a Hasselblad!

    All

    I am happy to say I am now the proud owner of a 501C/M Hasselblad with 80mm Planar CB Carl Zeiss lens :-)

    It arrived today and seems to be in great condition. Cost me £1400. I have had a hold and a play and love the feel of it already. As soon as I picked it up it screamed "quality, sturdy" at me. Looking down the viewfinder for the first time was quite an experience - it looks amazing with the Acute Matte D WLF. Though this "left is right, right is left" business will take some getting used to!

    Below is a picture of me with my new prized posession. Strange how life works - a thief walks off with nearly all of my Nikon kit and the end result is I am now a Hasselblad owner. I can't wait to get some film and shoot a few scenes.

    :-)

    I say again - thanks to everyone who has spent so much time advising me and guiding me through this bewildering experience of moving from 35mm to MF (note - I still have one Nikon F5 and I just bought a new 50mm prime for it, so I'll be multi-format now).

    Congratulations! You have one of the finest camera ever made. Feels good in the hand. Better than my Mamiya RZ.

    Yes, you look a bit like a proud father with a newborn...

    Enjoy the camera!

    Excellent. I know I'm going to have to get one eventually, I just can't afford it at the moment.
