    When used at close range even what is in focus won´t be as sharp as it would be with a Macro-Planar or the like. Have a look on my "In the Garden of Sanssouci" and look at the flower. Sharpness is really low with this lens if used wide open at close range. I find the bokeh to be particularly beautiful for a wide angle though!
    There is nothing wrong with my sample in this regard I think, as I said, it performs superbly when used at infinity.
    I think this is why Zeiss added the FLE in the later generation.

    Hasselblad filters are expensive unless purchased used.
    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.

    Hi,

    Is there a dealer you may recommend to get the filter from? Yes, if I can
    save some money, it would be cool!

    Kind regards,

    Hi Slixtiesix,

    Thank you for your messages : ) !!!

    Hi,

    have a look on my flickr-stream! There are a lot of pictures made with the 50/4. It is one of my favorite lenses.

    Best,

    Yes, I saw the flower taken at f/4(?). It is true what you say, it is in focus, but not as "crispy"
    as one may want it to be! As you mentioned, in order to get it crispier, one has to stop down
    around f/8.

    Kind regards,

    igmolinav : ) !!!

    Well you can easily get a bayonet to regular screw mount filter. They are not much and you can settle on a larger size screw mount for (possibly) several lenses. Say 52 or 55 or 58 or 63mm
