An excellent buy!
I have been using one since they came out and it is my favourite camera and one I shall never part with. If you are processing your own films you will have to get used to retrieving the film leaders from the cassettes as the camera always winds the film completely back. I took this up with Hasselblad and there is no way you can change this - which was a surprise. But if you get hold of an Ilford film leader retriever the job is easy and you soon get used to having to do this extra job. The metering I have found to be very good and it is useful that it is TTL so filter factors are automatically taken care of. Although a lot of the time I still use my hand held Sekonic and have the camera set to manual. Either way you will be very pleased with the results. I have found my Xpan to be the ideal camera for me for landscapes - especially when there is the need to go light.
