    I answered the basic question as simply as possible and not fill in all the detail in one post. Yes, that is true, but the issue is not leaf versus focal plane, it is why is the shutter speed on the barrel. Not everyone has the large photographic background that you do. If a short question is answered directly then there is less chance that the thread will get hijacked.

    See answer above.

    Again, I was conveying the concept, not writing a Hasselblad manual.

    Again my answer was not a tutorial on the Hasselblad, rather answered the question as to why the shutter speed was on the lens. Therefore I footnoted* that I did not want to confuse the OP about the V Series which does include the 200 and 3000 series, just refer to the V Series as the 5XX for simplicity. If I wanted to give a complete tutorial, I would have provided a link to Hasselblad Historical.

    Well, Steve. I think you had just brought up a few points that were neither relevant nor correct.

    And i don't understand wanting to exclude cameras that do have the shutter speed ring where the OP says it should be from the discussion.
    And besides: what confusion would that be? Between cameras that have the shutter speed setting where the OP wants it to be and cameras that have the shutter speed setting where the OP wants it to be?

    I never did accept that.... All my cameras & lenses have "real" speeds on a dial and DOF scales.
    I've simply stayed away from the "techno-gadget" cameras and brands. ;-)

    I don't mind having the shutter speed dial on the body; it's actually more logical than it being on the lens in the case of a camera with a focal plane shutter. I cannot understand why the aperture would ever be anywhere but on the lens barrel, however.

    Lets not forget the OM' s that have the shutter speed dial set at the lens mount where it feels as if its part of the lens, and naturally convenient for one handed operation of aperture and shutter speed. Why are we comparing Hassys to any 35mm here, thats an apples to grapefruit discussion.

    No, it isn't.
    It's not even a comparison. Just a summing up of cameras that have the shutter speed setting thingy where the OP wants it to be.

    I had mentioned the OMs, by the way.

    The Nikkormats came pretty close to having the shutter speed control on the lens barrel.

    We could even rant about the Japanese cameras where the aperture and focus ring scales go the wrong way

    And, we could also rant about the fact that this thread seems to be more medium format camera oriented than 35mm oriented.

    If you want something Hassy-like with 35mm gear, get a Nikomat or a Nikkormat FT series body. If you grip the shutter speed ring and the meter coupling ring (at least on the non-AI bodies), you can move both a stop at a time, just like the Hasselblad C lenses. I've done it, and it works well.

    The Olympus cameras have one disadvantage. Aperture ring is on the front of the lens on the zukio lenses. Less convenient. With aftermarket lenses, then, yes, the Nikkormat trick works.

    With respect to the focusing ring and aperture rings turning different ways, it really isn't that hard to figure out. I've shot Nikon, Canon, Pentax, and Hasselblad cameras in the past, and it's pretty easy to switch back and forth.
