Let's recap for my sake:
  • You want to keep - Nikon D100 with 105 macro, 50mm f/1.4, 80-200 f/2.8

  • You want to sell - Nikon F5 with 17-35mm f/2.8, 20-70 f/2.8, 85mm f/1.4

  • You want to buy - Hasselblad 501CW with a 80mm f/2.8 and A12 back

  • You want to shoot - landscape and still life, and street photography (candids)

If you want to keep 35mm digital, I would keep the D100 the 17-35mm f2.8. I'd sell the rest. I'd buy a new lens like the 28-70mm f2.8 for it instead. I know this isn't what you originally posted. Reason is the 1.5x factor the D100 has and the type of photography you want to shoot.

If you want to keep 35 mm film, I'd keep the F5, 20-70 f/2.8 and 80-200 f/2.8. This gives you the widest range of shooting possiblilities.

The Hassey 503CW is a great camera. This camera will s - l - o - w you down though. I mean it is fully manual camera with a top shutter speed of 1/500th second. And the lenses are ex$pen$ive. But $$$ hasn't stopped people from getting Ferrari's...

Just an FYI, I sold my F5s and all my fixed lenses. I only have 3 zooms - the 17-35mm AF-S f2.8D, the 28-70mm AF-S f2.8D and the 80-200mm AF-S f2.8D. Kept my F4e. Love that camera, though I haven't used it nearly as much as the new Hassey.
