'Vintage project' - macro lens for Hasselblad H3D
« on: May 13, 2023, 04:35:13 am »

Hello all,

I've wanted to work with the medium format for some time. Currently, I have a Pentax K-5, which is very close to breaking completely down (memory card slot not working, USB port not working).

I've come across a Hasselblad H3D at a good price and thought that might an interesting road to go down on.

My next project is macro photography documenting vintage a├║dio vacuum tubes for Wikipedia & Radiomuseum. Which, finally, leads to my question: What would be a in good macro lens for this? I've previously used a 35mm 2.8 limited from Pentax, which worked fine - but I'm in doubt as to how to translate medium format lenses into something comparable in terms of e.g. minimum focus distance. Some of my previous work can be seen here.

Lastly, are there any specific issues to look for when buying an older Hasselblad like this?

Thanks in advance,
