    I bought my Hasselblad body and back new and all four of my lenses used. New Hassy equipment comes with a 3 year warranty. If you're using it to make money, this can be really important.

    It has served me well for more than 10 years now with no repair, and I've beaten it up pretty well. By acquiring my equipment this way, I conservatively estimate that I saved at least $7,500 over the cost of new lenses.

    Used Hassie Gear

    Insofar as I'm aware, whether you buy your equipment new or used, if you're using it to generate income and it's considered a "reasonable, necessary expense" the IRS says it's deductible. [Or, my accountant's motto is 'when in doubt, deduct]. :>)

    And while new gear with a 3 year warranty is great, I actually prefer using my heavily used, but regularly maintained, equipment, lenses, bodies and backs to shoot assignments. Everything goes through the shop and gets a CLA once a year. Interestingly, I can't recall over the last umpteen years when the shop has actually found anything significant to fix in any of the equipment and I KNOW that's not a testimonial to the way I shoot but rather the way Hasselblad makes their equipment.

    Parts....line 1, parts......

    If ever the phrase "built like a brick shithouse" should be a applied to a product line, it should be applied to Hasselblad's.
