  • Summary: This lens came bundled with 2 year old 501CM as a fantastic value for money package saving me 65% of the new cost. Hasselblad and Zeiss' latest version of the standard lend providing a 35mm equivalent field of view of 44mm - a perfectly natural perspective. Of course (what else could you expect) it is crystal clear, pin sharp, colour perfect and distortion free - a joy to look through using the Blad's bright 3D focus screen (albeit in reverse) in the waist level view...
  • Pros: Quality, compact, quality, fast, quality, image purity, quality, features and quality.
  • Cons: None.

  • Summary: The combination of Hasselblad's precision bodies (I have the 503cw) and the German-made Zeiss glass is the ultimate in confidence and image quality. No other system I've used comes close. The even illumination of the optics, incredible color accuracy, perfect contrast and pin-sharp detail are something to experience. Shoot onto the new transparency films or some of the good ol' black & while emulsions like Verichrome Pan with this lens and you'll see what I mean.
  • Pros: Image quality, construction, long-term value
  • Cons: Not cheap

  • Summary: This is a great standard lens, no doubt. solid, reliable.. razor sharp and crystal clear. Just like you expect! compatability with both leaf shutter and focal plane shutter systems!!
  • Pros: can use for both systems., nice and bright at 2.8
  • Cons: can't lock the aperture and shutter rings together like the old "c" lenses without putting continuous pressure on the interlock button.

  • Summary: the best lens i'll ever use, but comes at a price no Blad should be without it, if you're willing to invest that is.
  • Pros: Super quality, great overall usage (nothing beats the standart)
  • Cons: supre quality comes with super price tag, allso the usual H'blad problems (shutter has to be checked before connecting-but that becomes second nature, and somwhat slow in use)

  • Summary: This is the lens almost everybody buys when they purchase a Hasselblad. I have never felt the need to buy any others. Maybe somewhat due to the high cost of the lenses? If your interested, I have some images posted on a website that I took while in Newfoundland Canada. All these images were taken with this lens with a lens shade. This is the site www.clubhasselblad.ballarat.net.au When you get their go to the galleries.
  • Pros: Unparalleled quality, extra care taken in construction.
  • Cons: None
