    Yes! Absolutely Hasselblad. I purchased my first Hassy a few months ago, only have the one 80mm lens, (I have a 120mm f/4 in my sights). My querry is, what is the performance difference between the 500 to 501 to 503's? I have the 500CM. I can see myself becoming obsessed with all things Hassy. I feel transformed.

    The performance comes from the lens - the Hassy bodies are just boxes to hold the other parts - some have additional features but do not significantly effect the quality of the results.

    I don't think camera specific forums or sub-forums are of any practical use to APUG members. There are plenty of *****Camera User Groups around.

    I agree with Bruce, I use Hassy's, but I don't think that we need to promote equipment elitism on our forum, there are other places for that on the net.

    I don't believe a Hassy Forum is about elitism, which does not interest me. It is about Hassy Specific information and issues. Mind you, the Hassy thing could be inside the Medium Format Forum, where ever you all prefer. Thanks for answering my questions.

    A Hasselblad forum definitely is not about elitism. True, there are lots of a**holes with Hassies but there are the same with Nikons and Leicas.

    I just thought it would be nice to post inquiries in a specific place. (nose in the air).

    In my opinion, based on my experience with other photo sites, nothing promotes discord as much as specific-brand name forums mixed in with other brands, like photo.net,and especially expensive ones. If it were me, I wouldn't go down that road. There are already camera-type forums here, and that should be enough. This website should be about the actual non-digital photography, not the brand. What camera brand is used to make a picture is really of no interest whatsoever. Any brand-specific questions can already be posted in the appropriate camera-type forum (35m, MF, LF, etc.).
