    I just picked up an EX+ 40mm FLE from KEH via the 10% off sale they are having until the end of the day, pretty much makes nearly everything in line with average ebay sales prices. So now my empire of Hasselblad gear is complete..:-)

    So the big question...how does one filter this beast? It was the main reason I held off on getting one, big expensive filters and the fact that everything else I use is BAY60 made this a tough decision. My main filters are ND, red, yellow, R72 for IR and maybe a polarizer. I figure a red or yellow would be a not-so-painful start.

    What are my options, thread sizes, etc?

    I don't have the 40 but I do have the 50 fle and its a performer. I have not learned how to shoot wide lenses yet. Ive shot normal lenses for 10 years with no wide or long lenses in the lineup. I find every time i shoot them I don't get in close enough.

    I use the Biogon 38mm on the Hasselblad 903 SWC instead.
    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.

    If it were me and I normally used a tripod, I would get a pro shade and run square filters.

    This lens needs filter 93. An other possibiliy is the use of a variable lens shade that holds square filters. The newest Hasselblad type Proshade 6093 T takes 100 mm x 100 mm. To fix the hood at the lens, you need a special adapter. But there are similar other lens shades from Hasselblad or other manufacturers.

    PS: There is nothing wrong to use this combination handhold, althoug it isn´t very compact.

    I like the 40, but the price, size and weight difference compared to the 50, pushed me to the 50.
    I like WIDE lenses, so maybe one day I might get a 40 or SWC.

    What about the use of a 93mm to 95mm step up ring?
    There is a lot more of the latter in terms of filter selection...
