Hasselblad Lunar mirrorless camera now shipping in the US

The Hasselblad Lunar mirrorless camera is now available in the US for the mind boggling price of $6,995.00. Even though availability is limited, don't worry - I doubt anyone will buy the 8 cameras that are currently in stock at Amazon. Three different configurations are available - copper/bronze with mahogany grip, titanium/brown with leather grip and titanium/black with leather grip:

Eww. And its just a Nex on the inside, right? No fancy middle format Hasselblad sensor and tech..
When I see that, I can't believe people complained about the K-01.

the funny thing is that very few people had the opportunity to try it, and all agreed that the build quality is really poor.

6,995$ for a cheap housing Nex is .... i won't say more to be polite

The build quality and looks of the NEX 7 is quite superb (for a mirrorless, that is).

This lunar "thing" looks flimsy as hell and the ergonomics seems to be awful (look at the power switch and double thumb dials, they seem unusually tough to handle).

Maybe Hasselblad should have hired Marc Newson to design their 1st mirrorless!

If they install the Kick Me sign accessory to stick on your back, you can't miss seeing them in a crowd.

Hey, don't laugh. This may be a teaser for new TV Show call "Pimp my NEX". Hello Kitty will be the second morph.

The NEX-7 looks 10x better and cost a fraction of the price even with Zeiss lenses.
