    Well I just don tget it I baby my stuff and today I was up on the Sonora pass and this shot I wanted I pulled out my 150! My workhorse lens. And guess what the shutter ring froze. And I turned it! And now it doesnt work!

    So in one week I lost a back and now my 150... Does anyone know how much this may cost? Also how is the best place to send this in to. I was thinking of going directly to hasselblad and fedex it over night as I need it for a job next weekend.

    Thank you all again!

    Very very bummed!

    Kevin,
    I would overnight the lens directly to hasselblad in in NJ. But you need to follow up and make sure they can get it fixed right away. Sometimes they take a little bit of prodding but always come through.

    good luck

    Tom,

    How good are these guys in Thousands oaks? I wanted to have it ready to ship by the morning as there is no fedex near me and they pick up around 11am and I have to cal it in tonight.

    Also any idea about what it will cost for a CF lens shutter repair? I can have it packaged up and ready to go. I have a wedding to cover on the 22nd and I use the 150 quite a bit. I could also you the 80 and just crop but I like to keep it tight..

    Thanks again,

    Kev

    Pro Camera Service have done camera and lens repair and CLA for me (Hasselblad, Leica, Rollei, LF shutters, etc.) for about 23 years. Call them at (805) 497-7240.

    Incidentally, they have some Hassy rental lenses - don't know if they have a 150.

    I have my lenses rebuilt every couple of years.

    What you have is a relatively small problem and will probably run between $150 and $200.

    As I mentioned in a previous thread, I use the following people and have had great service etc.


    Associated Camera Repair
    3401 N.E. Sandy Blvd.

    Thank you all for the replies.

    What causes the shutter to fail on a lens?

    In extreme cases the blades can seize up, but in your case it is probably just that these lenses need some moving parts like springs replaced.
