Following IS the current pricing for Hasselblad till June 30, 2007
Trade-in any competitive Medium Format digital back, and receive a $5,000 instant rebate.
H3D-39:$31,995 - $5000 = $26,995 net price
H3D-22: $22,995 - $5000 = $17,995 net price
H3D-31:$24,995 - $5000 = $19,995 net price

Any owner or owner to be of a Hasselblad H system is eligible to receive a
35% discount on a HC lens with the exception of the 300mm. Valid until July 31, 2007

CFV instant rebate: $1,000

This pricing IS across the board, for everybody no special treatments for "very special" people, as I am just an ordinary "quite" photographer, so I like their pricing.

So true.  This is not like buying a Canon Elph, where having the lowest price probably is a good thing.  Since the dealers are usually the point of support when something goes wrong, having a solid relationship with a reputable shop is very important.  I think for me, when it comes time to plunk down the cash for a back I would even spend a bit more buying locally at a place like Samy's where I know I can walk in and get help and maybe even a loaner if needed.

Exactly!

And when you establish a good relationship with a dealer you are more likely going to be treated to some better pricing. I have one resource for everything and I am treated very well on prices, service, loaners, rentals and just general consideration. For my Leaf back I was given excellent pricing, perhaps better than anywhere else.

I have decided to upgrade my Leaf to another Leaf but this happened because of the persistence and dedication of the Leaf Reps not because of their dealer.

The dealers of other brands over here were a lot worse even. Only one of the Phase dealers responded with an offer (which actually was quite good). The other 2 have not responded on more than one price request. The Sinar dealer over here has never gotten back to me. According to a friend the Hassie dealer in Belgium is very good (for some reason I did not ask them for a quote)

How difficult is it to answer when somebody asks you, "I am interested in your product x, what will it cost me? Can you trade in my old product y?"

No response after repeating the same question a couple of times doesn't instill a lot of faith with me. I am not interested in demo's, I am not interested in help or taking up whatever time from that dealer. I just want to know how much money to bring and where to put it in exchange for picking up the product. Even that seems to be too much trouble for some dealers.

Can anyone blame me from wanting the lowest possible price, for not being willing to pay for a man in the middle that is more an obstacle than an asset?

With respect to all the great dealers that are reported to be out there, I am very glad reps from the manufacturers are stepping in and taking over in some places. It is good to have that option because in the end it is about the product you use and not the relationship you have with a dealer. I never tell my clients how nice my dealer is but I will tell them how great the images are that come out of my back.

Again, I have no problems with paying for someone that actually makes a difference. I see a big risk in trusting too much upon a VAR system where a manufacturer is relying upon dealers with regards to sales & service. I think it is a wise decision some manufacturers choose to get a more direct relationship with their clients and prospects. In that case, if the dealer is good there is no problem in other cases it is good that there is an alternative.

It kept me working with Leaf instead of going for Phase.

"Are the prices on the linked sheet the actual price or are those prices negotiable? I think what inspires anxiety in most photographers looking into medium format digital is there seems to be a perception of secrecy in the actual price of the gear."

Bob,

The price list that Dave had posted are the list prices, but they are negotiable.  There are a few factors that will come into play on the prices.  Will you need training or phone support?  Do you need a one year or three year warranty?

I know it's a lame excuse!  It won't happen again!  It was rather odd going cold turkey on e-mail, cell phones and forums.  I do have to admit that it was rather nice to spend the day just kicking back like a Corona commercial.
