    T is for "Transparenz" and is Zeiss' short-name for their single-coating technologie. Therefore, if a Zeiss-lens is single-coated it's T-coated although not marked as such.

    It seems to me that the only light bit of a Hass is the body itself - once I pop things onto that the weight does rocket! I intended to use it tripod based and mostly studio so whilst not irrelevant the weight was not primary consideration - if I was intending to wander around a lot and didn't want close-up capabilities I would probably have gone with a Mamiya 7.

    That said, had a wander with the 50 and a monopod nad lived to tell the tale, so not all bad !

    Hey, those lens shutters are h-e-a-v-y!
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    But I agree that these lenses are first-rate.
    I once read that Hasselblad when they receive the lenses from Zeiss AG test them in their quality control dept., and reject around fifty percent of them and return them as being below their standard they want to supply to their customers, so they know every lens they supply is a good one.
