    I have an older model that I would sell you at a good price if you decide to change your age range. Just send me a message.

    It depends on the year and quality. Which one do you have?

    Hi - just saw this one on ebay and didnt know if it'd be of any interest to you.

    eBay item number:331967533188

    Seems to be an 1986 model. Apologies if it doesnt meet your criteria, just wanted to point it out

    Thanks snapper. This is definitely a good one. But the price is a bit high. I would expect to get a 903 if the price is more than $3K.

    If I didn't remember it wrong, 903 uses different glasses than the ones on that SWC/M, that's why sometimes those SWC/M with CF lens are selling at a higher price.

    Very early models did not have the T* coating. The 905 uses different glass due to environmental reasons. All models in between use the same glass. Glass wise there is no difference between the 903 and SWC/M models.

    Here's the history of the SWC model, data from:
    http://www.hasselbladhistorical.eu/HS/HSTable.aspx

    1954-1958 SWA & SW
    "Superwide Angle": fixed Carl Zeiss Biogon f/4.5 38 mm wide angle lens.
    SW: 1956 slightly changed lens barrel construction.

    1959-1979 SWC
    With silver C lens.
    From 1969 with black C lens, from 1973 with T*

    1980-1988 SWC/M
    Successor to the SWC. Ability to attach a polaroid back.
    From 1982 with CF lens.
    From 1985 onwards: spirit level in new style finder, removed from body.

    1988-2001 903 SWC
    Successor to the SWC/M. New Palpas coating in the body to reduce flare.

    2001-2006 905 SWC
    Successor to the 903 SWC. The Biogon had to be recalculated for new environmentally friendly lens materials. Now comes as a CFi lens.

    My first Hasselblad Super Wide was the 903SWC. Sold it in 2004, missed it over the next eight years, so I acquired another. The second is a 1978 SWC (black lens, T* coating). The performance from them is so very close to identical... I prefer the styling of the earlier model and the way its DoF indication works.
