This is an interesting development. I was assuming that the V was going to go out of production and I was pondering the possibilities of collecting Hassie cameras for fun and profit (Since they are better cameras, image wise, than Leica's, I figured they would become collectables and soon demand Leica-like prices). I'll put that idea on hold for a while.
Well...I guess we weren't meant to see the new lenses as Zeiss has killed the page with the info on it.
Well, I don't know what's going on with your computer, but the pages are still there as of 20s ago.
I think I'll be the lone dissenter here. While I understand the nostalgic appeal and the retro fashion look to the lenses, I think they look ugly. I'm glad I bought my CFE and CFi lenses. Just my tastes. I hope they don't replace the CFE line with these lenses, THAT would be a marketing hiccup, I think.

That was the rumor for sure, but Hasselblad made a statement that they were NOT going to discontinue the "V" series. Who knows what is really going to happen.
While I am not crazy about the looks of the lens, it is more about how well they work in the system, yeah? Given Zeiss' reputation and the fact they designed the lenses in the first place ... should be better the average, no?
