I thought I had to move up to a Hassy system; so sold my Super 66 and lens (including a 40mm). I don't print above 11X14; no one has been able to pick the Hassy photos from the Kowa shots.

Are the Kowa bodies as robust as Hasselblads, no. But, I had my body serviced by Ross Yerkes before ever using it and it never gave me even a single problem. I think the Kowa lens are just as robust as the Hassy stuff I use now.

I don't know if this is a good price or not, I haven't looked at Kowa pricing in years.

I wouldn't have sold my Kowa gear if I had had a chance to use the Hassy outfit for a month before committing.
