I'd love to be a Hasselblad user, but... I think I'm going to pay for my education first. =)

I might, however, buy myself a secondhand Hasselblad lens and jam it on my Nikons using an adapter. I've seen it done, and the results looked good to me.

I think my grandfather had one way back in the day before he switched to 35mm using Pentax, Leica, and finally Nikon.

There are cheap Hassy bodies in ebay. You might want to check it out. I feel you'll be getting one soon. hehe

I'm also a Nikon user but I don't use my Hassy lens with my Nikon body. The adapter thing would be interesting.

If I ever get the adapter, I'll let you know how it goes. Not sure where I'd find it. =)

Biggest problem is that they don't qualify as a "need", and we don't really work in medium format even in upper division. For class, 35mm and large format is king, while for work we're all digital. Some day, heheh

Sure that would be great.

If you need extra dynamic range then you might want to consider it. But you have large format to cover that as well. Anyway, good luck to your Hasselblad lens purchase.

I am currently thinking of getting a used 500 EL/M with viewfinder, magazine and 80mm or 150mm lens.

What would be the bench mark price? Are these items reliable as used? Repair / maintenance costs ?

Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks.


Cheers
KH

I have a 503cxi with 2 backs (A12 and A24), 80mm 2.8 lens, PM5 non metered prism and waist level finder, Quantum Q flash w/turbo battery. Although I love this camera, I need to change over to digital. If anyone is interested, let me know. I'm asking around $1450.00 for all.
