I bought this camera, and the accompanying Zeiss Sonnar 1:4 150mm T*, from my neighbor at the time. Along with it came an early edition of Ernst Wildi’s The Hasselblad Manual and a healthy stack of Hassy promotional material. I still have all of it.
I added the #10 extension tube, the 80mm ƒ/2.8 Planar lens (plus the plastic Hassy branded bay 50 lens hood), and the more modern looking PM45 prism viewfinder.
The camera is pristine. No flaws whatsoever. I keep it in its own Domke bag for protection.
The camera’s distinctive slap sound at shutter release is one of my favorite things about this shooter.
I use the 80mm lens most. It makes amazing photographs.
