When I started buying Hasselblad lenses three years ago the prices were still slowly dropping. Once I got my four lenses the prices started to rise. The cost of the SWCs and XPANs started moving up first and faster. I bought my SWC last summer and the prices have continued to rise. I have about all the Hasselblad equipment of which I would get reasonable or good use so now I am looking at LF in hopes the LF prices do not start rising soon.
