I donīt think they intend to scam you. In fact 2008/2009 are the newest cameras and backs Iīve ever heard of. I think the sales of Hasselblad V-System will be pretty low at the moment since the used market is pretty well stocked up. This camera might have been sitting in the store in Sweden for 4 years. As long as the lens and magazin mount do not show loss of paint or scratches, this should be a new camera. If you really want to be sure, mail Hasselblad in Sweden, like the others said.
