Hasselblad 2000 Lens Mounting Question


New Member
I have a question about the lens mounting mechanism on this camera and how it works (I do not own one of these). It looks like the lens is mated to the bayonet and then the large knurled ring on the camera body is turned clockwise to lock the lens in place. Is this correct or is there more gizmology at work?

thanks for your help,
The large knurled ring is the shutter speed ring. The lenses mount with the standard Hasselblad bayonet.
Lenses from the F/FE range allow EV method of changing shutterspeed and aperture at the same time with 2000 bodies.
A little button on the lens locks speed wth aperture if depressed before the aperture is changed.
