Last of the 903 SWCbs


New Member
I just purchased a like new 903 SWC that was manufactured in 1999 and wonder if this is the last year they were made. The 905's came out in 2001 I believe, but could have been manufactured in 2000. My 903 has a lens serial number of 881xxx which seems to be a pretty late number for a 38mm CF. Anyone have a 903 manufactured later than 99 or have any information about this? I was also wondering if the last of the CF Biogons could have received the extra internal flare suppression that came out with the CFi/CFE lenses. The last of the FE lenses received it and from the Hasselblad catalogs the 903 was sold along side the CFi/CFE lenses for the first couple years.
