Wide is my fav, and have several Lenses, but my most used one is the 40. I'd love a 38, but that is a totally separate unit.

I got the camera for Landscapes, thus the 40 f4. Anybody have a B104 Red Filter to sell?

Darth, that's one filter I have never purchased for the Hassey. You can bet when a good one comes out on the Bay; it will be snapped up fast, as the 40 is a well used lens. Ever thought about a real deep orange?. There's a real nice one on the Bay now; and again not cheap.

When I used a Hasselblad the 80 was by far the most used. Had a 50, 60, 80, 150, 250 at one time or another. Used them all at one time or another.

Definitely a good reason for going with the CF version, it uses 93mm drop-in types which can be economically adapted to much more common 95mm filters via this adapter ring. I use it with both my 40mm F4 FLE CF and 350mm F5.6 CF, it does vignette a bit with the 40 but it's way better than nothing especially when using filters like a polarizer or R72 for infrared.

Your Lens is a beauty, and in the long run; way cheaper on filters due to lots out there. A polar for mine cost me $400 (used), but like new

I wanted to include the 38mm Biogon in the survey, but there were not enough response options, so I thought it best to include the lenses that fit on the 500CM bodies. Nevertheless, I do have a 500CM and it is one of my most-used Hassie lenses. I'm a wide-angle type. I use the 38, 40, 50, 60 the most. I do have the 80, 100, and 150, but they are used less. I bought the 100 because it is such a well-regarded lens; but I seem not to find much application for the focal length, and the 150 doesn't see that much use, either. Somehow I find the 120 Makro-Planar a good focal length, but I didn't keep it because of its softness at longer focal lengths. Maybe I should go back to it, and just live with the softness?
