    Standard 250 CF's are going pretty cheap nowadays... see them for about $A800 fairly regularly. I see there's an SA on ebay for $US 6000... so more like 8 times the price! Yikes. Glad to hear there's not THAT much difference. I don't like the blue line either ;-)

    Hassy 250mm

    Andrew;

    I'd go with the 250mm Sonnar. I've had one for about three or four years now and I really like it (very, very sharp). I bought mine off Adorama for about $250.00 which, in my estimation, was almost like stealing (it came in the original plastic case with front and rear caps......quite a find!!!).

    Anyway, I'd check a variety of vendors and see where you can get the best price....(one thing to be aware of, though--parts for these lenses are becomming rather difficult to find.....but, it's still a joy to own and shoot with one while they're still around).

    Later-Joe

    Depends on what version you get.
    Some parts for the C lens may be getting harder to find.
    There are not such worries regarding the CF and CFi versions.

    Hi, I like the C 250 but Hasselblad will not repair them since some years for they have not all the parts any longer.

    Steve,

    if you think you can talk us into selling our C-lenses out of worry about service and spares, driving prices down and getting even better bargains, don't hold your breath for it.

    best

    Stefan
