    Sad news, but what could we otherwise expect? Like Sinar cameras, there are a whole lot of V-system Hasselblads, lenses, and accessories on the used market. In fact, I think the value of my gear finally may have stopped sliding.

    I'm much more concerned about future availability of 120 film.

    Sad, though not surprising considering Zeiss stopped making lenses for the V system a while ago. I love my V system bodies and lenses. 201F and 202FA here.

    It is sad, however, be heartened, there are about a jillion of 'em on the used market, working perfectly and looking for new homes.

    Sad news indeed, but what was even more of a surprise to me was that they apparently made the camera until recently. Until now I had thought that production had already ceased years ago and they were merely selling the remaining stock.

    This is what I thought too.
