I am selling a very robust Hasselblad kit with a top digital back, for a great price.
It is a Hasselblad V System kit with many top lenses, 50 megapixel digital back, and several fine accessories, including a free pelican case and free shipping.
A word about the digital back. Much fanfare has been made about the new CMOS chip based digital backs that have been introduced recently. Personally, I would avoid them. It is true, a CMOS sensor will have greater low-light performance, but that is not why one generally shoots with a digital back on a medium format system. The 16 bit color CCD will have greater detail, especially in the gradation in skin tone and landscape colors such as a blue sky. The smoothness of a CCD at ISO 50 is amazing. With proper lighting or a tripod and slightly longer exposures, the images from a CCD back are a thing of wonder!
The lenses in this kit are outstanding! All Zeiss, German-Made lenses, I even selected the best of the bunch, including a $4,000 (used price) top-of-the-line 40mm Internal Focusing super wide with its extreme edge to edge sharpness, as well as the 100mm Planar with near zero distortion and extreme detail.
I bought everything here in the past 3-4 years, all in Like New (or "Like New Minus”) condition from KEH Camera in most cases. I bought the Digital Back, new from Calumet Photographic on December 31st, 2011. That makes it 3 years & 2 months old. I shot 13,435 images with the back over this period. That averages to about 353 images per month. It was very well taken care of!

I am asking $16,500 for the entire kit. The digital back alone sold for $17,500, so for the benefit of buying it used, you get an entire huge kit & a discount on the price!
