    Count me in the camp that believes that the Hasselblad V cameras haven't actually been produced for 4-5 years and this announcement is simply the announcement of the end of inventory. Lenses may be another matter.

    Literally? Man, I'm catching the next flight to Australia with a few bags of peanuts!
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Of course not, but people buy Cadillacs over Toyotas for the luxury and handling. Same thing for Hasseys.

    You won't find many cheap 'blads here. The best places to look are KEH and APUG.

    The going rate here for a 500 C/M with 80mm lens, WLF and A12 is around $1500 and upwards.

    Well, then I'll avoid Melbourne and head straight for Highton!

    I wonder if the thing is that the cameras go for peanuts, but they soak you on the bushel-baskets...

    Oh joy. I loooooove peanuts (but I enjoy Pentax camera even more...). Peanuts on fish. Skillet-grilled rainbow trout served on a paperbark base topped with crushed peanuts/almonds and thyme with a lemon-lime jus tonight.

    Bring a bottle. Dinna is served at 8pm.
