    FWIW Adorama says March 15.

    At any rate, I think we'll see it ship soon....the 35-75mm is finally shipping which was formally announced at the same time.

    I don't have to "believe" anything. Just wait patiently and it will show up, eventually. Or not.

    That's the $7,499 (USD) version. Hopefully, the chrome version will be less expensive. I haven't seen a price quoted for that yet.

    That looks fantastic! I can't wait for mine to arrive now... Since my 500CM is a chrome body, it won't look as beautifully integrated as yours, but eh? I could always have it refinished in the same black color, along with the viewfinder and backs... LOL!

    Continuing to wait patiently...

    ok I'm actually jealous - that does look nice

    Depending on the feedback & partly due to being pissed with Phase, I am rather tempted to ditch my IQ350

    p.s. For focusing, in addition to focus peek, do you have "loupe" / magnifying glass option like on X1D? (I know, with the back on a V body + lens with no electrical contact, you could not have "auto zoom" as there is no way for the back to be informed of focus change by the lens, but a "fixed" magnified view for precise focusing would be great) ? ...

    What a nice piece of gear! I decided against it, and for an IQ1 60 (no crop factor in the end), but it does look really really cool. Wish I could own both. Dante's not listening.

    Beautiful integration with excellent style.
    It reminds me the very day I attached together for the first time my CFV-50c and 503CW.

    That my wife wants to get back into film and has wanted a Hasselblad for 20 years is why I have my name down for one of these for her. I did get her the 80mm lens, but I expect she'll end up start a collection of the old gear so she'll be able to do film again when we find space to set up a darkroom.

    HB gear had always been out of our reach, but I noticed while picking up the 80mm and getting on the list that the film systems have dropped substantially (no shocker). I wonder if this new back will resurrect that used market at all? For purely selfish reasons I hope not

    Hasselblad USA Marketing assured me this morning that they were shipping globally now. How many units are in the first batch and exactly which dealers are getting them ... that I can't answer.

    An unmodified 203 should do, if you let it behave like a 50x ("C" mode) and add a leaf shutter lens to it. No battery needed. The back needs to then be set to the 500 series. At least that worked on my now sold CFV50c mark I.

    Yes, you are correct. Sadly, all I have are FE lens!

    along with XPan and V System Lenses in electronic shutter mode with the XPan and XV Lens Adapters, respectively. In addition, the 907X enables compatibility with a wide range of third-party adapters and lenses in electronic shutter mode.

    wish the manual was publicly available.

    Just have to create a My Hasselblad account and it is available in the support section.

    The CFV 50 II doc talks about just the back and focuses on using it with the old film bodies. Scroll all the way down in the product like to find the "907x special edition" option and that gives you a variation of the same doc, but in includes info on the 907x body and focuses on that.

    Neither is complete if you want to use both the film bodies and the 907x, so grab both.

    Also if you download them on an iPad and send them to Kindle, don't let it convert to Kindle format. That seriously screws the docs up. Just stick with the PDFs.

    I just put the PDFs in Books on the iPad for easy access and annotation.

    My 907x is moving when I look at the UPS Tracking. On schedule for delivery ... three days to go!

    The 907X - yes. The back with the 203FE probably requires electronic triggering of the electronic shutter, if that is at all a setting which is available.

    Even better: I found I'd reserved enough money to pay for the 907x kit to the point where I had enough left over that a near-mint Hasselblad 500CM body in black finish (with WL finder and Acute Matte screen) was well under the left over. So that's on the way to me at present too.

    It was probably less expensive than what having my chrome finish 500CM refinished properly would cost...! LOL!

    Re: Hasselblad CFV ll 50c

    I've read the CFV II manual.
    There are two things I really miss in my CFV I version: focus peaking and electronic shutter, all the rest is choreography.
    And honestly IMHO they should have been already there in the first edition of the back, or in a firmware update. Now that the II is out, any hope is lost. Sadness...

    Thanks for posting!

    While I appreciate my CFV-50c a great deal, the 44x33 sensor size gets old for me with the limited wide angle V lens selection. But with the availability of the 21mm coupled with the 907x, it makes the ability to continue shooting film and digital with my V series camera even more possible now.

    Waiting patiently for user reviews of this package and a chrome version.

    Kind regards,

    My CFV-50c Mark I has a zoom function for focus checking, but there should have been automatic brightness control for the live-view (have to use variable polaroid filter for that) and ES.

    Lovely!

    The 500CM black body and black WL finder I ordered just arrived. Looks perfect, tests out with the 50mm lens and an A12 back ... perfect!
    All set...

    Yes. The XCD21 is arriving with the 907x package, and the XCD45P will come as soon as the dealer gets some more stock. Those two lenses plus my existing 50, 80, 120, and 150mm V-system lenses to use with the back on the 500CM bodies nets a complete Hasselblad film and digital kit with a full range of focal lengths from ultra wide to medium long tele. Even cropped to square format, the resulting 39Mpixel images from the CFV50c II are more than enough for my needs.

    I know what you mean.
    Those, especially the brightness control, are easy things to implement via firmware...

    Re: Hasselblad CFV ll 50c

    Looking at the manual it appears that this comes with a mask for the focus screen on the V series cameras but not a split image focusing screen. I had the original CFV 50 which did come with that and found that focusing without it on a 503 was extremely hit and miss. Handheld live view was of limited use. I sold it to buy the X1D.

    So it is a pity that this new version doesn't include a split image focusing screen. looking on e-bay these seem to go from between about £30 to £250. Not sure of the difference in price. But my experience with the older version was that I really couldn't hit focus properly without it handheld. The tilt screen on the new one should make focusing straightforward on a tripod without causing severe back pain by bending down. So maybe handheld focusing on a 503 at waist level will be easier with the tilt screen and live view.

    Tempted to go back with it once the regular edition ships. But I really like the idea of the 907x with a 30mm or 21mm. Very tempted.

    I use the plain Acute Matt screen with magnifier on my 500CM, rather than a split image focusing aid. Seems to work okay for me. I have a split image screen too but don't really like it, I find the split image section distracting.

    I figure with the CFV50c II, focusing magnification and maybe a small hood/magnification chimney will be sufficient for the LCD, I don't think I'll have any issues with the focus on the 500CM screen but that remains to be seen.
