I am looking at two Hasselblads on eBay being sold by the same retailer. One is the 503CW, the other is the 501C/M.
Both are advertised as "BODY + PLANAR CB 80mm + A12 FILM BACK (INSERT AND SHELL MATCHING NUMBERS) + WAIST LEVEL FINDER + LENS CAP + STRAP... but the 503CW has an ACUTE MATTE SCREEN whereas the 501C/M has an ACUTE MATTE D SCREEN .
The 501C/M comes with the D screen. The 503CW comes with the 'standard' matte screen. Because of this, (I assume - and possibly condition?) the 501C/M is £200 more than the 503CW.
I have looked at http://www.hasselbladusa.com/product...cessories.aspx but all of the screens are referred to as D Matte.
So my question is this : What is the difference between ACUTE MATTE SCREEN and ACUTE MATTE D SCREEN and is it significant enough to merit the £200 additional cost of the 501C/M vs the more modern 503CW. In other words, which would you buy - older camera with D screen or more recent camera with standard screen?
