Warranty question


New Member
I am going to purchase a 501 CM kit. They go for 2995.00 in USA with USA warranty.

I found a new international warranty kit for 2000.00.

Would it be a big mistake to buy the international warranted version/ Living in the states will repair facilities fix the cmaera if there are any problems under 1 year international warranty?

With today's more user friendly MF used prices, I wouldn't buy a new Hasselblad. For your $2,000 or $2,250. you could get a 501CM Kit, another lens, and maybe even a second back if you shop hard enough).

There are lots of mint ones out there with not a lot of "miles" on them. Just get a decent trial period to test the camera.
