    Amount of use and preventative maintenance.

    $150 every couple of years is a small price to pay.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    I tell you this the quality of the lenses are superior. Their sharpess, contrast are just amazing. I have never been so happy with a system that like Michael said it is no big deal every few years to have to spend a $100 or $200 for maintenance..

    Thank you all again!

    Owning stuff is one thing, using it is another.

    Best of luck on all your savings.

    jdef,

    Not to have an argument or anything like that, but I used to print in commercial labs for years, 8x10 negs/chromes (cibachrome), 4x5, 6x6, 6x4.5, 35mm and I can tell you that the 6x6 was always sharper and had more contrast than the 6x4.5 version. I am not naming brands but I am naming film sizes. Every time we came across well-exposed chromes/BW, negs the 6x6 was always sharper and more contrast than the 6x6. Now the 6x7 format also produces excellent results as well.

    I am just speaking from printing experience and looking at thousands and thousands of slides of different formats. This is why years ago I went with the 6x6 instead of the 6x4.5 format because of the picture quality the 6x6 and above produces.

    I based my decision back them on image quality and print quality. Then before I made the purchase I rented the different formats and printed them from 8x10 up to 30x40 for comparison and again the 6x6 and 6x7 formats prevailed every time in both sharpness and contrast.

    I really liked the 6x4.5 at the time but what I saw convinced me otherwise.

    Just my two cents.

    Well I ended sending it off to Hasselblad directly and it seems that it is a spring. I will know for sure on Monday.

    Thanks again to everyone!
