Thanks, Jerome. I will indeed wait to hear how it went for you.
Not to my full satisfaction, I am afraid. The camera arrived today. The IR window was indeed exchanged and everything is clean, the camera works allright, etc... That is for the good part. It took about 3 weeks (from Germany), Hasselblad needed the full camera (I first sent the back alone, I wanted to still use the camera since I have a film back) and the back and camera covers were forgotten, that is for the less good part. The worse part is that it costs 800. In addition to the 326 (which I expected), there is tax and shipping (which I also expected), AF calibration for 180 (which I did not expect, but know to be necessary if the new filter is a bit different) and 128 of "general inspection and time" (which I did not expect at all). I think I will write back to Sweden to ask them if this is really their idea of fixed repair charges.
Now you have a report on the real
charges that await you. I still would not have the IR window exchanged by a local shop, but that is just me. Cleaned inside and outside, maybe.
