Each one has its own purpose.
Rob, I'm not being intentionally coy, I just don't have any other photos of it yet. These were from my first evening with it, and all I had was my GH1+50/2 and a cabled flash. Give me a little more time and I'll have some more revealing photos of it, although I doubt they can be any sexier.

I was looking at the 500c/m just now and thinking about how it looks like such a camera - iconic. But then I realized that it's because the Hasselblad 500-series itself is the standard that defines what a medium format camera looks like. When I was out on the street with it I felt that people were treating me with more respect than usual for a photographer/Guy-With-Camera. Even my GX680, which dwarfs it in every way, doesn't get that reaction. I guess it looks more like an instrument to be ignored than a camera.

I've run a test roll through the camera, and it's solid: no light leaks, no timing problems, and solid focus. I've also continued to resist buying any additional accessories for it, which is unusual for me. Rolleyes
