I know this is probably a long shot, but I'm in need of a focal plane shutter Hassie that can let me use my CF/CFE lenses as well.  Since I can't afford to have two bodies, I'd like to swap my 503CW (Excellent condition) for a 203FE.  I'm not 100% what the exchange "rate" should be, though I hope it's close to 1:1.  Let me know if you might be interested.

Good luck!  Looking at KEH pricing the ratio is closer to 1:2,  the 203fe being twice as costly as the equivalent 503cw.  You might look for a 201f body.  It allows the use of CF and F, FE lenses.  Just no meter. Much closer to 1:1 !!

Hey, thanks for the info!  Hadn't thought about using KEH to compare prices.  You're right, it is closer to 1:2 :LOL:  I just knew that 203FE's gone for around $1600 on Ebay recently, so that's what I was basing it on.

Thanks for info on 201F... that'll definitely be another body to consider.  I guess the max shutter speed is also different? I.e., 1/2000 vs. 1/1000 ?

That shouldn't be too big of a problem.  It can also trip the leaf shutter in my CF/E/i lenses, e.g., for high-speed shutter sync?  That's really what I'm worried about.  A meter I can do without (though it'd be nice to have).

Thanks again!

The top shutter speed pn the 201F is 1/1000.  Plenty fast.  Heck, you could even go with and older 2000 series to cover your bases. I bought a nice 2000FC for $300 a little while ago. The later 2000 and 2003 FCW are the ones to look for.  They work great.  Good luck!

Hey, you're right!  I just looked into a 2000FCW, and it really has everything I'd want... 1/2000s, selection between FP shutter and lens shutter... and they go for pretty cheap.  I'd probably be able to afford it as a second body, instead of replacing my 503CW :-D

Thanks guys!
