The reason the 205FCC and the entire 200 dies was lack of sales. They were all frightfully expensive, especially the 205. They were quite advanced for Hasselblad. The electronic nature of the cameras had nothing to do with it. I use the 205tcc, 203fe, 202fa and 201f and haven't had an issue with any of them. The 205fcc body was about $8000 US new if I recall. They are bargains these days!
