    If you can find one that is!

    Yeah, I agree that it does depend on how the OP is going to use it. I was just throwing out another alternative.

    OK, but the OP was also considering the 40mm which isn't rectilinearly correct. I was just throwing out another option to think about.

    Thoughts on Hassel SWC.

    The Rolleiwide is a terrific camera and I honestly believe it may be the sharpest lens of any camera I've owned. It's terrific for even fairy close up shots too. It is not nearly as wide as the 38 Biogon or 40 Distagon though. It's like saying "I'm thinking of getting a 24mm lens for my Nikon F3, do you think a 28mm will work?" But still a great camera and lens. Tough to find in good condition under $2000 and often $3500-4000 with anything original like lens hood, cap, filters and/or case. Some of my recent fairly shots using it:

    Ha! When I went on a road trip with my son and my father from San Francisco to Mt Rushmore and back a couple years ago those are the three cameras I brought! Did not hang all three around my neck at the same time though....! All three fit perfectly side by side in my trusty Lowepro Orion bag.

    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, yes, if you can step back 1 or 2 steps.

    Wow!! Great shots!

    One of the main reasons I bought mine. I had a 50mm Distagon for some wide shots when I shot weddings and had a heck of a time with distortion on some shots. The SWC was a dream compared to the 50mm, but like the 50mm, it was only used for certain settings. Another trick for shooting candid, street type shots is to take the finder off, stick it in your pocket an use it like a TLR. Hold it at chest or waist level, point at or near your subject matter, center the bubble and then trip the shutter. No noise and you're not looking at your subject so they don't have a clue. Of course you'll have to use a film like HP5+/THY2 so you have enough shutter speed and aperture to play the DOF game. If you can shoot at around f11 and have a speed of 1/60th or higher you'll be king of the sidewalk. Just watch your red DOF guide bars and you're all set. A very simple, but very capable camera. JW
