I have seen posts from several forum members about using Hasselblad lenses on the Contax 645 via an adaptor.  My questions are:

Which lenses?  I've seen Russell mention a 100mm f2 (or was it a 110mm?)  and others mention a 180mm.  Are these CFi or CFe lenses?

Do you use the lens stopped down on aperture priority?

Are there any drawbacks other than manual focus and stopped down operation (i.e. slow unless using wide open or a stop down)?

TIA

Mark, I've used Hasselblad lenses on the Contax 645. It doesn't matter if they are CF, or CFi, or CFe. The 100mm and 180mm (and 250mm SA and 40mm IF) are particularly fine performers, so they're the obvious choices.

However, my own experiences weren't particularly encouraging, I used a 180mm and even though it delivered slightly better results than the Contax 140mm and 210mm it still wasn't quite as good as when it was mounted on a Hasselblad body. My take out was that the adaptor (which was the Contax branded adaptor) wasn't perfectly aligned.
