Bummer man. Sorry to hear about that.

I guess that's one of the potential drawbacks of leaf shutter lenses...although for the price, you would think they would last FAAAR longer than 6k actuations...

OUCH!  Painful in so many ways!

A pity, hopefully the last repair you have to do for a while.

By the way, but I was surprised how small the lens is. Considering the fact that the MF sensors are so much larger than the 35mm ones, I would have expected the lens to have a lot more glass. Is that not the case?

Cheezus! :( No warranty on that standard lens, or you bought it in used condition?
Anyways, I hope there's a quick and affordable way to fix it, so you can be back on track soon.
No one's perfect, and it takes a great man to admit he's wrong. Me - I'm wrong on a daily basis.

The lenses are bigger, more noticeably with the zooms.  The 80/2.8 is the smallest of the lenses by far.  The two zooms are huge, with a 95mm filter size, same for the 24/28/35mm primes.

A Hassy 80mm lens should really be compared to a 50mm 35mm lens, since that's the angular view equivalent.

Personally, I've never been impressed with the bokeh in my Hassy 80. Now the 80mm Schneiders and Zeiss's on my Rolleis, that's a different story...

Big time, and It broke during a nice portrait shoot too. I reverted to my 5D3 + 24-70VC and slapping on ND's, turning up those strobes. I really like the IQ out of the 80mm too. Its a shame.  :-\

I bet it was a beautiful lens with beautiful IQ. Are you going to get it repaired?

Thats the thing, If it costs a 1000+, I probably won't. I'll end up using that cash towards a 50-110MM instead.

Too bad it's not like Canon, I thought if a shutter breaks below the rated actuations (like 450k for the 1Dx it would be replaced free)  Maybe I'm smoking something, but guess I shouldn't talk because I'm at about 430k right now...

430,000 shutter actuations? WOW. Your a machine! :P I think I have around 100k actuations on my 7D, and not even 10k on my 5D III. That's after a few years, too.

Of course, I don't have the minigun of the DSLR world at my disposal, either. ;)


Anyway, it is a shame, RL, that it died. Any chance you know anyone who might be able to disassemble it, fix it, and put it back together for you? (LOL, i.e., are you really good friends with Roger Cicala from LensRentals? :P)
