Hasselblad SWC: models, availability, and price
So I'm fancying the idea of the Hasselblad SWC. I shoot 35mm and 120 ( only Rolleiflex's atm) but I just absolutely love the negatives I get from 120. I only print 120 now because 35mm is a bit lacking. I like ultra wide angles and small/compact /quiet cameras so the SWC makes the most sense. I'd opt for this over a Mamiya 7 because of the close focusing abilities and I do not really need the extra negative (6x7 vs 6x6).
I'm not ready to buy any but my budget is probably $2k but maybe a bit more since I would need an A12 back or two, the ground glass back, and some misc accessories . I see some on keh.com for this price so I think it is doable.. When it comes to coatings, I do not care because most of my lenses are single-coated and I do not shoot color.
Any suggestions and advice on models? Any to avoid?
Is there a go-to person for these things? Incase something busts.
The 40mm Hasselblad lens is another possible option but I'd prefer to go with the SWC because of the bulk and noise and the 40mm FLE probably isn't much cheaper considering that I do not have a Hasselblad body. It is another option though, I would go this route if it were cheaper and more reliable.
