    Actuations and Hasselblad H Lenses

    Hi,

    i am new in the medium format section and have a question: Is there in critical limit with actuations and hasselblad lenses? Do anybody have experiences with used lenses over 25000 actuations?

    Thank you.

    Re: Actuations and Hasselblad H Lenses

    My 80mm has much more than 25000. On the other hand, my best lens 35-90mm quit working at only 900 actuations, not the shutter but the AF, just by carrying in my camera bag.

    My dealer recommended against buying this lens as well as the 50-110 lens, saying that the AF mechanism is weak, and vertical forces during shipment even may cause problems. (I remember that he referred to a notice sent to dealers).

    BTW, this is my first problem with any Hasselblad equipment since the film era. I own almost all the old cameras and lenses, and still use those with the adapter on H camera, and I'm sure Hasselblad will correct this faulty lens after seeing the shutter counter at 900, without any hassle for me.

    Therefore, a lot depends on your luck too.

    Hi s.agar,
    thank you for your reply. Do you use the Hasselblad CF Adapter for the old Hasselblad Zeiss lenses?
