    Looks like the 503CWD and the 503CW black may have been discontinued (according to the B&H catalog). The chrome is still available from B&H...

    I had emailed Hasselblad about this a few months ago. They said that they 503CW in chrome will continue in production, though they other bodies were being discontinued. They wanted to keep one "legacy" body in production they said. It could all be marketing crap as well, I don't fully believe email response from companies
