    Simplified procedure:

    1. Make a list of all Hasselblad lenses.
    2. Buy them in whatever order you encounter them.

    Being of "thrifty" ancestry and ways... my step 2 in Leigh's simplified proc is "Buy them in whatever sequence I can convince myself of "true need".

    Some people get GAS, but there is no more satisfying GAS then Hasselblad Glass GAS!
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    How many Hassy lenses do you have, film_man... or which step are you currently on?
    My kit is the bare essentials. Just a 501CM with A12 and 80. And well another 2 A12s and a Polaroid back. Oh and a PM90. And a 50CT. And that 250CT. Oh and the 150CF I bought 3 weeks ago. But that's it. I don't need anything else. Well...maybe I'll get a 553ELX. And maybe a 40...maybe?

    What is SG says, "Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!"
    Have/had Mamiya RB, Rollei 6003, Hasselblad, Nikonos, Canon EOS, Leica R, Fuji Instax...and some other stuff

    ... so how do you like the 250? I'm convincing myself I need one to better photograph my kids playing baseball. The 150 is good, but I sometimes can't get close enough to the action.

    I have the older 250 "C" version. ( not the SA )
    It's a bazooka so consider you might have only one shutter speed (1/500) available when handholding.
    You may become adept at 1/250 but I usually use it at 1/500.

    It's also great on a tripod

    Ahhh, a fellow Scot
    I opted to go all "C"s due to filter compatibility (nowadays bay 50 filters are cheeeeep) and CF's can get pricey.

    I agree with most above.
    The only blad pissing war's were over
    80mm and 100mm being that much better and so similar a focal length.
    and the 180 was known as better than the 150... the 150 has always served me just fine though.
    TODAY buying used!!!! I would be more concerned with weather it was taken apart and re-assembled by a professional that lives up to the professional standards. The lenses come apart similar to view camera lenses paper thin tolerances are required to return to factory spec.
