Hasselblad Lens Review Data

Hi folks

After receiving my Hasselblad V to Pentax Adapter, I'm able to provide a lot of test footage. I created a sub site on my blog to host all test images (at the moment 1.5 GB).
Today I tested:

Hasselblad Distagon CFE IF 40 mm f 4.0
Hasselblad Distagon CFi 50 mm f 4.0
Hasselblad Distagon CFi 60 mm f 3.5
Hasselblad Planar C 80 mm f 2.8
Hasselblad Planar FE 110 mm f 2.0
Hasselblad Makro Planar CFi 120 mm f 4.0
Hasselblad Sonnar CFi 150 mm f 4.0
Hasselblad Superachromat CF 250 mm f 5.6

You will find the data here:
Of course without commercials, registration or whatever.

At the end a little hint about classic Hasselblad lenses. Don't expect to get good lenses when shoot wide open. Hasselblad lenses are optimized for an aperture of f 8-11.
Nearly all classic Hasselblad lenses show there best performance when capture an object near infinity.
Some time ago Zeiss published a very interessting paper about the evolution of Zeiss/Hasselblad lenses:

Anyone using the Zeiss FLE 50mm f2.8?

I like the lens so far on the 645Z.
Anyone else tried it yet?
