    carl zeis cf 100/f/3.5for hasselblad

    i just missed the above in an eBay sale. How much am i missing? Who has experience with this lens?How does it fit in between the 80 mm planar and the 150mm sonnar. i don't want to miss anything major, but i don't want to turn into a collector either!
    Regards

    Everyone I've ever spoken to has said that the 100/3.5 is a disgustingly good lens from a technical perspective. I personally have never encountered distortion with my 80, but apparently the 100 has none whatsoever, and is somewhat flatter in its projection. I don't particularly care, or notice such things in the type of photographs I enjoy making, so I've had no reason to hanker after one.

    But like I said, everyone I've ever spoken with who has one won't shut up about it.

    The 100mm is said to be one of Hasselblads best lenses together with the 180/4, the Biogon and the Superachromats. I have no real experience with it (played around with a 100/3,5 CFI at Photokina though), but have seen a lot of pictures made with it. I like its angle of view very much, which is visibly narrower than that of the 80mm. At the same time, it is about the same size as the 80mm.
    Q.G. who is not around here anymore said that the optical difference between the 80mm and 100mm is narrow in real life if both lenses are stopped down.

    My experience exactly. I've owned both the 80 and the 100, and finally got rid of the 100 for FOV considerations. The difference in sharpness is definitely visible in real life shooting, but the 80 resolving slightly less detail was never an issue to me.

    I never saw any difference in 'micro-contrast', '3D-magic' or any of that sort of thing.

    One caveat: the 100 has less distortion than the 80, but again, this is a minor issue (to me).

    The 80 is a very well corrected lens. My advice would be to only get the 100 if you prefer the FOV or care about the (lack of) distortion.

    The 100mm lens has been called "brutially sharp" by some women. See all the above comments. I have the 38mm [903 SWC], 50mm, 80mm, 150mm and 250mm. If I did not have the 80mm lens, I would have gotten the 100mm and had 38mm [903 SWC], 50mm, 100mm, 150mm and 250mm.
    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.

    thank you for all replies. so far the sharpest hassy lens i've used is the 180mm sonnar, but the 10 mm planar sounds worth trying. i'll see if i can fetch another...
