    I have a Hasselblad 500CM with 50-80-150 lenses and other goodies. Yeah it's a nice camera. I also have a Rollei 3.5F with the Schneider lens. As Sandermarijn said the 3.5 is lighter, smaller and cheaper than a 2.8.

    The collectors want the Planar so a Schneider lens saves some bucks there too. In any case I use the Rollei way more than the Blad. There is absolutely no problem getting a Rollei repaired. In fact there is a whole lot less to go wrong with them.

    If your hung up on a 2.8 or f/2 Planar fine but you own it to yourself to a hands on evaluation of other choices.

I much prefer the simplicity of the rollei.

    So you mean that the Rolleiflex planars render in 3D? Like everybody else told me there is no way that i need to try out those but from what i have see in the Net
    especially photos that come near to what i do i got the feeling that the rolleiflexes
    have more character and 3D effect the the Bokeh is different that those i have see from hasselblad. But this mean nothing maybe as the one that make the photos is always the photographer on the end and os many other factors as background model position etc etc .

    Interesting to see to that so many have wroten in this topic and i feel others have to the same issues.

    I have never seen any of that. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

    Like others, I only have experience with one of these - Hasselblad. I can recommend the 120 Makro/Planar with an f/4 and minimum focus distance of .8 for portraits. It's bokeh is lovely and is a great lens other than the 80mm for portraits!

    Have take some days to thing about what u people recommend. On the end it will be a question of price to as my budget is ca 1500 USD.
    So it will be Hasselblad or Rolleiflex on the end and i will take a look next week to a
    500 C/M Classic with a Planar CF 80.
    Dream setup would be if the camera had a exposure mettering for the times i work very fast but this is out of my budget. I have tested Hassy with expo finder and a 205 that was a dream but this is out of my budget.

    You like the bokeh from the 120 Makro-Planar? I always found it a very harsh lens. The five-bladed aperture doesn't help matters any.

    I dont need much lenses i shoot most of the time just with one. if you take a look at my webpage you can see that 90% of my photos are done with a 80mm for digi. mediumformat or 50mm för Dslr. One lens One lightsource and some filters and i am done.

    That implies one small step more towards a Rollei TLR (preferably a 3,5 Planar).

    One smalll step for [a] man, one giant leap for lambis

    Hasselblad is the most sturdy camera of three and Sweden have high standarts for every their products and They are European also. You can find every part combination for your camera very cheap.
    You can even buy a tilt shift body for your Hasselblad also . And there will be a new generation optics to 50 years optics which will fit your Hasselblad.
    I learned that some Hasselblads look new but worn because they are a fashion business one and used ten thousands of times. All plastic gears could be worn.
    So as I ever say , Subscribe to APUG first and buy from a reputable seller.

    DHW Fototechnik GmbH Makes Rollei now. Its still there.
