    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.

    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...

    Big difference between 50 and 40 for Hasselblad. Like the difference between 28 and 20, for 135 cameras.

    Alright, I got my 40mm FLE in EX+ condition, it’s like new of course, not a mark to be found, speeds are all on. It’s a really nice lens, quite the engineering piece and not as big and heavy as I was bracing for.

    So the front, it unscrews leaving just the small built in shade petals and 85-86mm-ish of threads, obviously allowing for the cap when it is on. The thinner front ring also unscrews revealing what is supposed to be the 93mm filter threads but I took my digital calipers and it measured at 95.4mm?

    I have located a Hasselblad 93 to 95mm adapter ring and there are lots of filters out there in this size, not too badly priced either, so I want to go that route. I also poked around my gear closet and I indeed have a 6093T shade, the only adapter ring I could find is the 40746 Proshade adapter, is this correct?

    This lens is pretty impressive thus far, but the front end of it is complex, I would like to know what all the options are…

    I went ahead and ordered the adapter ring, 6093T adapter, 95mm B+W red 25, and a 95mm 720nm IR filter. If for some reason the filters and adapter ring do not work, I can just return them and use 4x4 filters except the IR, likely get a Lee 4x4 Big Stopper after tax time.

    I took the shade / filter holder off and set the 40 FLE next to the 50 FLE and man, the 40 is only a little bit bigger than the 50 when it really comes down to it, a pleasant surprise.

    Other than finding a screaming deal on a 350mm 5.6 CF, my Hassy kit is super-complete.
