    Default Is Pro shop good to get Hassy and lenses??

    Yesterday went to the Pro shop in Plaza Singapura with my wife. Really tempted to get a Hassy 503CW and a 80mm f2.8 lens.
    Is Pro shop a good shop to purchase Hassy? Are they selling it really expensive??
    Pls advice..thanks!

    If you want a good bargain Ebay have plenty of hassy stuffs at low price but they are used item. So you have to know what you are getting. For example there 4 four versions of Hassy 500CM. Then 503 have CX, CW and CXi. In ebay you can get a used hassy 50mm F4 for US$1k where singapore second one will cost you S$2.3K

    Haasel lens is a complicated mechanical lens that are not suvericable by anyone coz the shutter and aperture in build inside the lens,not in the camra body,and fixing the lens cost quite a lot the ,a good pro shop will provide with you the experty.

    Pro Photo is owned by Shirio Singapore which is the distributor of Hassel. Infacat, Shiriro bought over the Hassel and a digital back manufaturer in Europe.

    Ask for Helen (formerly from RGB)

    Ya they are. In fact I have a hassy 500cm which they have give up hope after I drop it. They claim the body crack can't repair. Guess what a local camera repair shop fix it up I am happy using it for a few years before some aussie brought from me
