Ok, the glass was not cracked thank GOD! These is a decent scratch right in the center of the glass surrounded by some lighter abrasions. Apparently it fell and impact shattered the filter which in turn failed to completely protect the glass. He has contacted Zeiss directly but because they are no longer affiliated with Hasselblad they wont touch the lens. It looks as though the damage could be reduced by buffing and re-coating the lens. I've seen some threads regarding having lenses recoated so i'll look and see if I can find them to identify sources. If anyone can recommend where to send it to be recoated please offer your recommendation. Thank you!
i can recommend zeiss in germany .they repaired a sonnar 5.6250 for me and only charged me 50euros,which made an e bay purchase worthwhile after all.
