    Just bought my...

    first Hasselblad!

    a chrome 500 EL/M with waist level finder and battery + charger for a scant $175 from keh.

    My father has a number of A12 backs and lenses for his own 553 ELXs, so once I'm home from college for the summer in the next 2 weeks I'll be able to use those.

    I'm very excited to enter the Hasselblad world with an EL/M of my own

    I can't wait! My girlfriend and I are going on a few trips this summer, I'm planning on bringing the Hass with us (she wields a Yashica Mat 124G that formerly belonged to me before I gave it to her as a gift). Should be great!

    Your GF wields a Yashica Mat? - Keep her.

    What lens or lenses are you going with?

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

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    Don't hassle the 'blad

    I will probably use the 150/4 quite a bit, as my father owns two of them, so it won't take away from his kit if I take one on extended loan from him

    He has two 80/2.8s as well, I believe, so I'll take one of those too.

    I'd like to get something wider at some point as well, like the 50, but having shot excessively with the 75/3.5 on my Rollei, and the 80/3.5 on my girlfriend's Yashica, I'm not too concerned about immediately acquiring additional lenses. Mainly, I'll welcome the extra speed and more precise viewing of the Hasselblad.

    And yes, I'm very happy to have a girlfriend who is interested in film photography, she also has a Nikomat with a stable of lenses at home. She's essentially my other half.

    It's good to be with someone who will encourage your creativity (my wife gave me a Pentax 6x7, which has prompted my return to film after some time wandering in the digital wilderness). Just be careful of mutual GAS, or you'll be "that packrat couple with all the camera gear".

    Very nice, have fun with it. I just finished my third roll with my new\old 500CM. Loving it so far. I went with a 50 to start with for something different as I had been shooting a lot with 75's on my TLR's. Hoping to pick up an 80 soon.
