Zeiss 40mm CFE IF

Where did you this wonderful lens and how long did yo have to search for it? It is a very rare (and expensive) lens and is the best 40mm lenses ever offered for the Hassleblad V System. I'm sure you will enjoy it.

Thank you for your comments

I got it on ebay and actually did not have to search or wait for it at all.

After my recent purchase of 645D, I wanted to get a quality wide angle lens to match its sensor. Zeiss ZF.2 Distagon 21mm has been my favorite lens so I wanted to get something that would have a similarly stellar optical quality. Research for options quickly brought my attention to Hasselblad/Zeiss CF lenses and 40mm CFE IF supposedly being a top performer. I noticed a listing on ebay so I made an offer despite seller's no-returns-accepted policy, and my offer was accepted.

So I think I got lucky on this one. But hey I have been burned with some duds too, given my impulsive go-for-broke buying attitude.

Cheers!
