That's why I said get an independent repair person quote for fixing it. We here in internetland don't know what's wrong with the lens - it could be any number of things that could be repaired cheaply (cheap being a relative term on a Hasselblad repair), or it could be one of those components that no longer has parts. Don't send it to Hasselblad themselves - their repair service is very expensive, and they are also more likely to write it off as beyond repair, whereas an independent repair shop may have another similar lens that can be cannibalized. But I don't think it's imprudent to start planning for a CF lens purchase either - depending on what's wrong with the C lens, the cost of repair may be equal to or even more expensive than a CF lens, which has a more durable shutter.
