    One significant difference (applies to any TLR vs any SLR) is that you see the subject at the moment of exposure.

    As to "a C330 with a 135 or 180 for similar money" (in this case $500), I think you can do a lot better than that if buying from a private party and minimally patient. I'd stay away from the older chrome (Seikosha shutter) lenses.

Although, I DID see a Hassy 500 EL/M (I think it was an EL/M... might have been just an EL) in my local camera store for $85. I need to call and ask what the heck that's all about.
    I got rid of my C330 because of the fiddle factor - there was no "ease of use" with a C330. However there is ease of use with a Hassey.

    Just my thoughts.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    For my (future) C330, I wonder if I should buy a 135 or a 180. Is there a quality difference?

    I have both the 135 and 180 super, I have used them for twenty three years, they are both very good, I prefer the135 especially if I'm working in my small studio, or in peoples houses, the 180 is good for tight head shots, and outdoors.
    Quality wise, overall probably the180 is better, but they are both capable of excellent results.
