The standard lens is the 80mm f2.8 Planar. Lenses from 30mm to 350mm* were available. The lens barrel is marked with EV, f/stop and shutter speed. For the 500 series the maximum shutter speed is limited to 1/500th of a second. Depth of field is supported on the lens barrel as well. All lenses will stop down to at least f/22 with some expanding to f/32. One may be available that stops down to f/45. The shutter is an internal blade design. The lenses for the 500 series do not appear to suffer from the internal scratching that may occur on the 900 series lenses. Flash sync is available through the lens PC Sync at all shutter speeds. The earliest lenses are "C" with an interlocked shutter and aperture and 50mm series 8 filter. These lenses have knurled focusing rings. The next version, "CF", removed the interlock as the default and increased filter to 60mm but changed the mount to Bayonet (Bay60). The knurled focusing ruing was replaced by a texture rubberized ring. The "CFi" expands on the "CF" adding electronic connections but increasing the plastic content. There were FLE (floating lens element) lenses as well.''''' * '''''<u>The 135mm is designed to used with bellows.</u>''''' Summary: Please note that all contributions to the Camerapedia are considered to be released under the GFDL Cancel Editing help (opens in new window) Retrieved from "https://camerapedia.fandom.com/wiki/Hasselblad_500_C/M"
