Hasselblad Xpan adapter questions
« on: June 03, 2013, 07:17:22 pm »

I was looking at Xpan lenses on eBay, and I was thinking about wanting to add a wide angle and a telephoto. The Hasselblad 90mm f4 is very reasonably priced at around $400 and then the 30mm lens is 3000+ dollars which seems excessive for a lens for a film camera. However, I found a couple of adapters that got me thinking.....

http://www.ebay.com/itm/NIKON-F-lens-to-Hasselblad-XPAN-FUJI-TX-1-TX-2-adapter-/200587222843?pt=US_Lens_Adapters_Mounts_Tubes&hash=item2eb3ee1f3b

These could be interesting options, I assume the lenses will be able to cover the image area, but will they work with the rangefinder, what will happen to the viewfinder? how can I determine what focal lengths will become on the camera for fov and composing. Thoughts?

Also, if I used the Nikon F adapter, could I then put my mamiya lens to nikon f adapter, and get the huge coverage of my Mamiya N lenses?

thanks,

I would have thought since both the leica R and Nikon F lenses are for 35mm then they wouldn't cover the x-pan format, I don't think even the mamiya lenses will since x-pan is 72mm across and mamiya 645 is 60mm, but I could be wrong. The 50mm shift will work.
