    When I bought my first Hasselblad equipment the salesman said that the 100mm lens was a great lens. I did not buy it but instead collected the SWC [38mm], 50mm, 80mm, 150mm and 250mm lenses. Yes, the 250mm lens is a specialist lens as is the SWC but I use both enough to keep them. Actually, now I use the SWC more than the 250mm lens.

    So I do not really have a place for the 100mm lens in my stable. However, since yours sits on the shelf, how about sending it over here for extensive testing and exercise, to be returned after a year or two? Come on we both know that lenses are meant to be exercised to prevent CLAs.

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

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    That's true.
    I might consider sending it to you for a while (i.e. i expect to get it back), but will have to ask for a small fee. About... uhm... how much do these lenses go for nowadays?

If it were to break today and be unrepairable, I would immediately begin searching for a replacement. In fact, if you buy this kit and it comes with a chrome 150 that you do not want, I might buy it from you.
    That has nothing to do with the chrome barrel or the lack of T* coating. (Well, possibly the lack of multicoating does produce a softer tonescale which is more to your liking.) Else the only difference between your chrome 150 and a brand new one is the barrel and the shutter. They are optically identical. I.e. Zeiss made an excellent lens to start with and there's been no need to improve it.
    Don't get me wrong here. I own a black C type 150 and I love it. The only differences 'tween mine and yours is the black paint on the barrel and the multicoated lenses, where the multicoating doesn't matter that much on a long lens anyhow. (Multicoating does matter much more for e.g. a 50mm Distagon, where you much more often get direct lightsources in the frame. There are also more glass-air surfaces in the Distagon.)

    I recently (in the last 4-6 weeks) went through KEH's listings for the following: WLF 501cm body, A12 back and 80mm CFE lens. The least expensive combination of those 3 items was approx. $1,450. KEH quoted buying a similar oufit in EX+ condition at $704. Perhaps if you explain the facts of life to the seller..............

    This seems consistent with my previous looks at KEH buying/selling. They seem to typically buy at about 50% of their selling price. I generally think of the midpoint as being a fair price for a private party sale.

    Exactly. And since I priced much newer items (like from this century), the OP's seller isn't offering a very good deal.
