This camera is not ment to be a tool for the hardcore photographer who needs it all in the studio. This camera goes beyond using it. I think such cameras are only there for an extreme market; Gift and gadgets for the ultra rich.

Yes, just stroll along the Swiss streets and look in the windows.  Or as we say in French, "Lick the Windows"!  Watches for over 100,000 bucks.  With diamonds.  Rubies.  Sweet looking but my wrist has a stainless steel everything.  For the cheaper people.  That said, my camera is my baby and it says Sony a99!

The status of their brand just isn't as widely known outside of photographic circles to command ridiculous prices.

In order to get these high prices a camera must appeal to total idiots with too much money, because no pro photographer would pay that large a premium to have a commemorative edition of any camera.

The most powerful luxury trademarks aren't the ones for the most expensive product in each category. They are for a very expensive product that is widely known by the newly monied class. That means the Russian Mafia, the Arab oil sheiks, and the new Chinese billionaires.

Reminds me of where Apple's been heading the past 10 years...

Yes! Colnago bicycles brought out a Ferrari, it can be forgiven as they are both Italian makes at least, though it is doubted that it will go any faster than any other similar constructed bike!  ; )

Hasselblad lost it's soul some years ago with the introduction of the 'Fujiblad' and recently with the   'Sonyblad'. As far as we are concerned there is only one Hasselblad, the others are a shadow of what was.
