    At least the camera is more compact and lighter.
    Lesser distortion due to lack of mirror and special lens design (closer to film plane, ...) ??

    However, a 500 camera can use TTL view finder, a SWC camera can not.

    I went the 500cm with 40mm Distagon route, simply because of economics. The SWC is much smaller and lighter, but with external viewfinder instead of SLR viewing.

    Any regrets, or just happy either way??

    Happy. I'll keep the 40, AND one day get an SWC as well. I really like wide angle medium format.

    And the right answer is: option # 3

    You will love it. Enjpy!
    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.

    Well, I have the accessory ground glass back and use the magnified chimney finder with it. It's like a mini view camera with no movements. It does allow precise framing, spot-on focus and DOF preview. Now, it also allows the use of a metered finder to be slipped into the back. I'll admit to only using my metered finder two times, but it can be done at least. I do use the ground glass adapter back probably 50% of the time for still-life stuff. Just one great camera! JW

    Holy cow! I thought my darkroom was loaded with cameras and "stuff", but you got me beat all hollow. I don't know about you, but I could lock the door in there and throw away the key if it had a bathroom and food. Yes, I know, no food or drink in the darkroom. JW
