There's no denying the appeal of a classic Hassy. The solid construction, ridiculous expandability, square format of 6x6... Our man in Sweden, Victor Hasselblad - hooked up several generations of serious shooters with this fantastic gear. Anyone else a fan?

I started with a basic 503CW body and A16 magazine, waist-level finder and Planar T* 2,8/80 CF lens. Later added the Distagon T* 4/50 FLE CF and Sonnar T* 4/150 CF lenses, followed by the original CFV16 digital back. Toss in a few extension tubes, a second film magazine and a 45º prism finder... There's nothing this rig can't make wonderful pictures of. Granted, it's a bit of a handful if you're toting it all about - but I generally travel quite light. I prefer the body, WLF, mag or CFV and a lens of choice.

I've owned an H4D/40, 645DF, and a Sony A900. Although, the pics were good, there was something missing...After purchasing A Hasselblad 903SWC recently, I realized it was the build quality. I was amazed at the detail in the 903, the quality of the build and the appealing lines were what I longed for. The use experience with this and other 500/200 series Hasselblads really speaks to me! All the others felt very cheap in the build quality, and the electronics are another story. Soon I hope to add a CFV 39 to the mix, to use with a 503CW or a 200 series camera.
