    Heard about them - that is fantastic, but I hadn't heard they were being made by Cosina (and if so, so what. I have a Zeiss Ikon rangefinder that is absolutely stellar!)

    I expected them to be reasonably priced (if the Cosina connection is real), but...

    ZEISS ZV Classic lenses have been designed for use with all Hasselblad cameras in what is now called the V system, built since 1957. They can be used for both analog and digital photography. ZEISS ZV Classic lenses contain no electronics whatsoever. They can therefore be used for many years without losing their value.

    The line of ZV Classic lenses comprises:
    1. the classic wide-angle Distagon T-- 4/50 ZV,
    2. the classic macro lens Makro-Planar T--4/120 ZV and
    3. the high-performance tele lens Sonnar T-- 4/180 ZV.

    First deliveries scheduled for: 1st quarter of 2007
    List prices (incl. VAT) will be: presumably EUR 3,500.00 or $4,300 USD

    How do they differ from my Rollei SL66 HFT lenses that paid, at most, 500 bucks for?

    A lot of bulls**t now days if you ask me
    Value for many years depends if people decide to continue using V system cameras for many years. I mean what happen to the C system... there was not any electronics in them...

    I think you'll find that the 'V' system IS the 'C' system -- shuttered lenses for 'real' Hasselblads.

    Cheers,

    These are apparently "vanity" lenses. I can get Excellent++ used original CZ lenses at KEH (as one example) for about a third of the price.

    Nice stuff for wealthy gearheads who like to fondle their lenses and brag with each other about how much they cost.

    That is one explanation and the most likely, but also I was thinking that some pro or semi-photographers might want a new lens, and this would offer an alternative.

    Though it rather depends upon the price, though my wife was eyeing the 50mm Distagon.

    Looking at the prizes (and quality) of the Cosina-made CZ lenses for Nikon and Leica, I think these will be anything but cheap.
