Strengths: Comfortable to handhold due to lighter weight Tessar design and modern ergonomics. My chromes are very sharp and have rich-saturated tones.
Weaknesses: No problems, this lens is very nicely finished and its quality of construction is typical Hasselblad (the best!)
The 160 CB is a excellent lens and I would buy it again! It offers Hasselblad/Zeiss optical and mechanical quality at a lower cost by using an impressive 4 element Tessar design.This lens is lighter and better balanced than the 150 or 180 lenses. This is important if you do a lot of handholding rather than tripod mounting your gear.
