    When I send in a Hasselblad lens for shutter/aperture job (repairing or CLA), which happens on an average of about 4 to 5 years for each lens, there is always a (minor) post on the invoice for the realignment on the collimator.
    I wonder why C.Z. did not designed their lenses as they could be dismantled for sevicing without causing a problem for the alignment of the elements, perhaps it is undoable for a decent prize.

    Dear Phillippe,

    I don't think it's doable at any price. I mean, the lens has to be collimated when it is assembled -- and reassembly after disassembly is much like the initial assembly...

    Cheers,

    Roger
