    Age of HC lenses

    Is there any way to tell the date of manufacture of HC lenses from the serial number, as was possible for earlier Hasselblads?

    Not that I know of. The very early versions had different colored screws securing the bayonet mount.

    However, you can determine the shot count on a lens in the camera info.

    Isn't it just the same? I'm looking at a 100 with the serial # 7DST10994. Skip the first 2, apply VHPICTURES and you get ST which is 2006. I wonder if the Lunar will keep this standard?

    Douglas, I think we can take that as confirmation.
