Copying with a Hasselblad questions.

I have some European oil paintings from my Grandfather and a Churchill item that I want to make black and white and colour copies of. I used my SWC/M a few years ago and got excellent results. Since then I recently got a linear mirror unit for my system.
So I am wondering would any of these do a better job...
I have a 135 with bellows
50 FLE
So I was wondering how the 135 and bellows and the 50 FLE would perform. I doubt the 80 or 150 would be suitable
Has anyone got experience in this question. One issue is when the lens is too close to the item being photographed lighting is an issue, I use two quality monolights.

I have the Hasselblad Automatic Bellows, and the 135mm T* Planar-S. That is without a doubt one of their best lenses, I would surely try it for copying. As to whether wide angles are the way to, try a few tests and you will know.

Good Luck and let us know what works for you
