    About a month ago I started a thread about getting back into med. format with a deal I'd come across on some Hassleblads. Well, I got them today, took long enough. 2 500C/M's, 1 501 C/M, 2 80mm Zeiss T*, 1 50mm Zeiss T*, 1 150mm Zeiss T*, 2 waist level finder, 1 PC45 finder, 1 PC90 finder, 3 120 backs, 3 220 backs, and a polaroid back. Also in the kit 2 Lumedyne strobe heads, Stroboframe, 3 batteries and 3 power packs for the flashes, all in a Tamrac wheeled flight case. I have been grinning ear to ear for about 4 hours now like a kid on Christmas morning. In the deal I also got a couple Nikkor lenses that are newer than my existing lenses. A 300 f/4 AF/S and a 80-200 f/2.8 with tripod collar. My older lenses were the original 300 f/4 AF and the one touch version of the 80-200 without the tripod collar. I just couldn't pass them all up for the price. Then again, a couple "deals" like this and I'll be in the poor house.

    :thumbup: But then again, someone's gotta ask, so it's gonna be me: what'd you pay?

    I'm almost ashamed of myself. Everything was $3,200.

    I saw a bumper sticker the other day: "Screw guilt." I see you agree:)

    Sorry it took so long to post a pic of the rig, been working on the studio. Here is a very poor snapshot of the new Blad toys. Everything but the EL body, it's grip and the 2 Russian TTL prisms were in the deal, plus a Nikkor 80-200 2.8 AF and a 300 f/4 AF-S. The black thing at the bottom is a rolling Tamrac case that the balds came in.
