Title: Cheap 'blad..
Post by: Jonathan on January 17, 2011, 06:10:35 PM
Twitter is all a flutter with this one....

Apparently on the SWPP forum, somebody is flogging a Hasselblad H2D with 80mm lens and 21 MP back for......£2,000.

The 80 is the kit lens though it's actually jolly nice.  Generally hard to find a decent one under £1K.  So that's £1K for the lens and £1K for the body and back.

Don't all rush at once....

I wonder if the lens has got a crack on it where it fell off the back of a lorry ;)

Hope not.  Bloke I know is buying it.....

FWIW pretty much every removable part on a 'blad has a serial number (body, back, lens, viewfinder).  Contact Hasselblad and they can tell you the history.  They keep a careful record of stolen ones.

Bodies AND lenses log number of frames.
