    Well folks. I just finished running some prints and the camera is solid. Every shot I took today in and out are all good and crisp and clean. I can find no other explanation than the lens itself.

    Thank you you ALL for the comments. I really appreciate yall helping me through this. All the comments were valuable.

    Thanks again,

    Steve

    Just jumping in with a quick, similar question. I'm really new to using a Hasselblad -- I've got one on loan, a 501CM with an A12 back. Unfortunately, I don't have the user manual and I'm having difficulty focusing the lens, especially when outdoors in changing light, as the split sphere hemispheres alternately seem to shade out whilst I'm trying to focus. I know my eyesight isn't that bad but I'm really struggling to see what's going on. I feel like there must be something I don't know? Any tips?
    Thanks.

    Your eye needs to be on the same axis with the split prism, if that helps.
    If you're using an 80, are you sure the aperture is open all the way? The blanking out shouldn't be much problem on a 2.8, its very apparent on an f/4 lens though.
    You can download a manual from the Hasselblad Historical site; http://www.hasselbladhistorical.eu/

    Thanks, bdial. Just looking at the manual. Maybe it will get easier with practice. Yes, aperture is open all the way, 2.8. And I've made sure I haven't got the DOF Preview on. The only way I can seem to do it with confidence is if I can find a vertical line to focus on, which splits very obviously across the prism, and then line it up. But this isn't always possible with faces.

    Yeah it's all about head placement relative to the ground glass focal plane.... It's difficult on mine but not impossible
