203FE+CFV II 50c, or GFX-50SII + Metabones 0.71x speed booster

203FE + CFV II 50C gives the ultimate Hasselblad experience, but with 1.3x crop and not much vertical orientation possibility.

GFX-50 SII + Metabones 0.71x adapter uses the full potential of the Hasselblad lens with IBIS, but no large ground glass focusing. A little less expensive too.

The CFV solution also works with my SWC/M.

Decision, decision. Not that I have the money yet, la sigh

How is your experience with CFV and SWC? I heard the corners will be weak.
With 203FE + CFV II you can switch between digital and film back, and I like using B&W film occasionally.

I would guess with the CFV II and SWC there are no corners from the original 60x60 ratio left with the 44x33 sensor size.

I found some samples of the GFX + speedbooster searching on flickr and with google. I’d personally lean that way to have a similar FOV with my Hasselblad lenses on digital.

The corners of the original 60x60 are great, but the beam angles, even for 44x33 "crop," are still significant and could cause problems with digital backs. On the other hand, maybe it is a non-issue, or maybe we need to wait for BSI sensors that can handle better large beam angles.
