Same here. With "Pros" dumping Hasselblads as if they're radioactive, you can buy good quality used gear nowadays for half the price it was five years ago.

Okay, the Ziess lenses aren't as sharp as the Leica offerings (I'm talking vs. the 100 APO-Macro here!), but they're good enough and the large negative is a dream to scan and work with. I also love the interchangeable film backs - no more lugging around different bodies just because I want to use different types of film.

Using the 'blad for candid people (aka "Street") photography was a bit tricky at first, but now I wouldn't use anything else - outdoors. Indoors however the Leica (and 50-lux) still rules :?)

(I have a lot of newer material, but I've been working on a large project these last few months and haven't had time to scan them.)

Again, I've been meaning to expand this, but paid work comes first :?)
