    Advice on some Hasselblad packages (pricing) ...

    Hello,

    I have been offered a Hassleblad 503cx package which includes the following:

    1 503cx - little bit beat up cosmetically, but seems fine mechanically

    50mm Distagon - T* older black style - used heaps, cosmetically not great, glass fine
    80mm (Planar?) CF - used well/little beaten - glass fine
    150mm Sonnar CF - used a little - glass fine

    Metz 45CT-4 with the TTL hoohah that works with the 503cx

    5 backs - assorted wear, most seem fine (compared say with the external wear of my RZ package) - some a little beaten
    Assorted bits and bobs - broken and beaten but fixable proshade, B+H/Blad polarisers etc... case
    They gave me a first price of $2100

    there is also a minty 553elx with 80mm CL and 15mm CL lens and pretty much the same assorted bits and bobs (all very nice) for $3550

    Both I can get CLA (shutters, lens, body) beforehand free/included in the price

    Any impressions of/on these prices ?
    Cleared the bowel problem, working on the consonants...

    Assuming you're speaking of New Zealand $'s it seems like a good deal.
    Roughly speaking, backs in misc. condition are worth around 100 US each. a 150 CF is 600 US +-, for example.
    I would take a look at KEH's site and total it up.

    It sounds like a fair deal even in US$. I.e. a deal I probably would go for. (... or, I paid more for my own gear. )
    Unless you are going to use the camera more or less only in studio, go for the 503. The 553 is much heavier and thus less portable.
    (BTW, nice links from luvcameras.)
