    Hasselblad 503CW / 500CM

    I own a 500C/M and I was thinking about making it a reserve body and getting a 503CW.

    It may sound like a silly question, but I am assuming the C lenses and film backs for my 500C/M will work fine on a 503C/W ?

    Also am I right in thinking the 503 has metering?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Yes they will work fine. That is the beauty of the 500 series.

    The metering is in the prism.... you need to buy one with a meter. They're fine but a handheld or spotmeter is better.

    Plus, using a handheld meter is less weight than having one in the finder.

    I just bought a 90deg finder with an adjustable diopter for my Hassy 500 c/m from KEH, and I dearly love it! But... of course... that wasn't your question, now... was it!??? hahaha
