I think the Lubitel is basically the anti-Hasselblad ... :-)
i once was asked the "is that a hasselblad" question when i was shooting with a lubitel (2 to be exact) too. and that was from someone who was shooting b&w with a nikon f100and doing his own printing, so you would expect that he knows his gear.

also people has asked me several times for which newspaper i worked while shooting with a holga...
