I haven't finished the film so can't comment on the quality of the glass yet but I don't expect to be disappointed!

On the other hand, will it persuade me to switch from my Mamiya 7ii? I suspect not but I'll reserve judgement.
Rob - I feel you pain, my friend.

It's a tough job and I guess someone has to do it.

Over the past 50+ years (!) I have owned a variety of MF film cameras (Yashica Mat 124G, Pentacon 6, Mamiya C3, Rolleicord Vb, Fuji GW690II) but until three years ago, never a Hasselblad. Put a toe in the water with the purchase of an early 500C with 80mm Planar. A delight to use and really enjoyed the results. Last month I decided to 'upgrade' to a later model by buying a 503CX with 80mm CF (sold the 500C etc on commission and received almost 50% more than I paid for it!). The Acute Mat D screen definitely makes composing and focussing easier and the wind-on crank is a plus point. Finished off roll no. 10 today, will dev tomorrow. My other film cameras are feeling very neglected...
