No. But why don't you just contact them in the UK and enquire? I always find the English companies(representatives) respond much better than the "crap" I'm currently going through with the likes of Leica and Contax in the USA.

Thank you. You are right that I should contact Hasselblad in UK. They are closed until 5th Jan and I was hoping someone some where in UK might have the info handy immediately. Many thanks for your response. Best wishes for 2004.
