    Zeiss introduces new lenses for Hasselblad

    I can't believe it but Carl Zeiss has introduced three lenses for the Hasselblad 500 series cameras.

    Here is the LINK.

    I get the feeling that those will be the only V system lenses as Hasselblad will be discontinuing all the others.
    Why?
    - They have reverted back to the metallic look.
    - They call them "classic".
    - They cover the three common lengths: wide-angle, macro and portrait telephoto. They probably figured they don't need a "normal" perspective.
    - They don't seem different in specs from the ones present (the 120 has a typo that could either mean the larger apperture is 2 or 4).

    I think the new V catalog will be very, very thin...

    They do look nice, however I am inclined to vote with Ari on this one. It is possible there is nothing "new" about these lenses. A good marketing move however, and a nice way to sell some of the old barrel inventory with new nomenclature....

    there are disgressonary dollars to be had in the market, this month's Men's Vogue has a nice full page ad from Leica for the M series film camera, you can choose your color, have it in red if you will and with matching lens caps no less!

    "Classic" lenses? Doesn't that smell like nostalgia, although the V system is still current? Wait a minute...

    VERY COOL! Though I am certain like with most Hasselblad equipment, there is no way I could buy a lens new!

    I'm not a 'Blad user, but this is the best line I've read all day: "ZEISS ZV Classic lenses contain no electronics whatsoever. They can therefore be used for many years without losing their value." (From the bottom of the Zeiss page linked above.)

    I think it's cool that CZ is releasing these lenses again. I'm interested in the 50 f/4 Distagon...but am afraid as to how much it will cost...

    I will be buying them once they are available. I just emailed calumet to see if there was a time frame.
