I'm the proud owner of a Hasselblad 500CM Chrome Late with Waist Level, Acute-Matte w/Grid & Split, Rapid Wind Crank, etc. Two A12 Chrome Backs with Mask, Lindahll Dark Slide Holders. One Planar CF 2.8/80 mm lens. All are in 'Excellent Plus' condition. All were sent to Hassleblad Certified Service Center for thorough CLA and return to factory specs. Just something I always to with used gear.
I've got a several roles of TMax 100 and Tri-X 400 in the fridge and ready for testing.
Any suggestions for additional lenses (something wide and something long)'and accessories would be sincerely appreciated (Jim?).

that is fabulous, and congratulations. I'll second Jay and all his LGMs. I'm sure Jan-Arie will be along shortly with a horde of little yellow-fellows
I'll let Jim chime in on the lenses, but now would be a good moment to think about what you're going to do with the film once it's been exposed. I've shot both films, as well as Ilford Pan-F 50 and enjoyed the process of developing the film myself. This is where the fun begins. You can either invest in a quality scanner capable of handling medium format negatives, or you may want to just find a good lab that will give you high quality scans. Developing the film at home will allow you to identify which images you want to scan before taking them in.
And while you're at it, if you can track down a few rolls of Velvia, I can't say enough about how much I like the results from this film. Yes, it's a slide film, but the results are spectacular. Now that fall is settling in, I'm going to load up my 60 year old Rolleiflex TLR and capture the colors.
now have some fun, and don't make us wait too long to see the results.
