You have nothing to worry about! I just bought (late September 2012) a brand new hasselblad 503cw kit from B&H in NYC, a very, very reputable store. The 503cw model year? 2008! The newest 500 body they have in stock. And I also bought a brand new A12 film back. The model year? 2009! According to my trusted contact at B&H, these items are no longer manufactured regularly, with the newest stock being several years old. Once that stock runs out (in Sweden?), Hasselblad may re-start the production line, but for now 2008-2009 is the most recent production year for film bodies and backs.
