    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.

    Sorry, but it still looks a little fuzzy! I think you should send the camera body, lens and back to me and I'll test it for you. It might take a few years, but will be well worth it. For me anyway! When you have a good working "Blad" you can no longer blame the equipment. I moved up from a Bronica S2A(many moons ago) to a Hasselblad 500C outfit and have been smitten from then on. It's not that the Bronica wasn't a very good camera/system, but the V-Blad system was just that much better. It was also that the Zeiss glass rendered a "look" that always made me smile. I will admit that I've had two bodies(EL and ELM) that I've had problems with, along with several lenses that had to be "tuned-up" from time to time. A photo-nut friend of mine, the one who I bought the 500C from, said it was an investment. I don't know about that so much anymore, but it is a pleasure. JohnW

    No camera, in and of itself, has ever been an investment for me either. I'm just far too rough on my gear. It's why I can never justify buying new/mint equipment. If someone tomorrow, out of the blue, gave me a flawlessly mint condition original Lecia M3 kit, I'd be afraid to even touch it. It'd go straight up on ebay/craigslist.

    But yeah, what led me to start obsessing over "blads" was one, I already had a love for 6x6/square-format images from being taught film photography on my Mamiya C220, and two, almost every truly brilliantly rendered photo I would find online, especially ones of fairly average subjects, seemed to come from Hasselblad users, and especially if they were shooting chrome.

    I still love and rave over my C220, but I just really appreciate that extra umph I get from my 500CM and T* lens.
