  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Pros: Unparalleled quality, extra care taken in construction.
  • Cons: None
