Nop, I personally don't own one yet. But for sure you can find some RAWs over the internet.

I already tried, got tons of RAW from different cameras, but impossible to find something from Hasselblad.

just to butt in a little. You can probably download Phocus from Hasselblad to trial, which will open your .fff files.
On the subject of Nikon v Hasselblad, in my mind their is no comparison file wise. I used a canon eos1ds mark 2 and mark 3 for quite a while. I then upgraded to a phase one p30+. The files are much easier to work with retouch wise and have a beautiful feel, especially when processed with CaptureOne software. Amazing quality ... if exposed correctly... this is extremely important !! Saying that, I still love to shoot 6 x7 neg (RZ67) and scan now and again.

Well... most cameras will work right if the illumination of the scene falls into the camera's dinamyc range.

Re: How to have the widest and the richest graysca

exactly, but so much emphasize (from the start of digital shooting) has been put on not blowing out the highlights, that most people tend to underexpose too much..... a mistake! A quick look at the histogram (whilst shooting) will save a lot of time in post production. As a retoucher (Quantum3) you have to help educate the photographers, then obviously you're job will be easier and the results better. I notice this happening more and more now. In London, one retouch house has recommended ISO lightmeter settings to help their clients produce better files. ie Rate camera at 100, rate meter at 50asa.
