Ok, so in my mother's infinite wisdom, as an early christmas present my mom got me a Hasselblad 500 EL/M Camera body. I was extremely shocked when I saw it, but also extremely happy (who wouldn't be). One thing she didn't realize was the cost of lenses, film magazines, a sturdy tripod, etc. (for a good condition set-up, not including the body I could easily drop thousands) She's a crazy lady and I love her, but she basically gave me a ferrari with no engine block. So, I was looking on ebay, trying to get enough gear just to go out and start using it. I occasionally see decent lenses for sale with a minor scratch on the rear element, and they are selling for peanuts. I know there are people that would chastise me for even considering using a scratched lens, I'm just trying to get out and actually use the camera, and get familiar with the wacky hassy controls. I'm a broke college student, and most of my money is going towards digital equipment so I can maybe one day make some money. Anyway, how badly will it reflect on image quality if I have a scratch on the rear element? This'll just be temporary until I can dish out $400-1000 for one in good condition. If anybody knows of a good cheap place to get film magazines, metered prisms and lenses, let me know. I want to use this camera.
