These had wider apertures and closer focusing than the leaf-shutter lenses, the C lenses.
Several years later in 1982, the C lenses themselves were redesigned and renamed CF lenses in recognition that they could be used in both 500C and 2000FC bodies.
The 205TCC was followed by other 200 series cameras. Return of the focal-plane Hasselbad titanium foil focal-plane shutter compatible with leaf-shutter C and CF lenses new series of F series shutterless lenses focal-plane top-speed of 1/2000 sec larger, non-vignetting mirror Based on high-end model 205TCC new series of CFE lenses (in 1999) and E filmbacks with electronic databus communciations coupled open-aperture metering (center-weighted) aperture priority automatic exposure - no zone metering Based on 203FE with some features removed center-weighted automatic exposure can only use its own focal-plane shutter - cannot use C lenses at all - cannot use leaf-shutters in CF/CFe lenses - top shutter speed of 1/1000 sec.
Unfortunately, the leaf-shutter design meant that the top shutterspeed was limited to 1/500 sec.But because the 200 and 500 series share much in their basic DNA, please read my write-up on the 500 series before reading this page.History of the 200/2000/1000 series focal plane Hasselblads The very first Hasselblad roll-film system camera for the general public, the 1600F, was released in 1948, just a few years after the War.In response, Hasselblad moved away from the production of in-camera focal-plane shutters and towards using in-lens leaf-shutters.The first 500 series using the new leaf shutters, the 500C, came out in 1957.
