The "loony-line" is obviously not intended to be used for anything practical but as a "show-off" amongst billionaires. They are few and far between, so what will Hasselblad do with their existing line? Are they also to be regarded as show with little real substance?
I guess, that very few Hasselblad pro-users would have "thunk", that a new "loony-line" would solve their future needs.
What will be the next big thing in pro tools? Only a Caterpillar in pink and fake gold lametta could top Hasselblads move, and I do not expect that in the near future...
Since I did not expect Hasselblads latest move, I may be wrong on that "tool" front too...
Jonathan Reed: ThinkTank makes the best bags out there. Worth every penney.
I agree with Goreyo.
I see the same thing at airports all over the world. People WILL NOT read. Even if they read about the weight restrictions, they try to get around them anyway.
I've seen a (european) lady trying to get 20+ kg hand luggage on a domestic chinese flight with max. 5kg (as is standard on all domestic Chinese flights). The same restriction applies to all domestic flights within Brazil, and in a lot of other countries. It applies to all carriers.
It will not be upheld on all flights, but wait till you hear the moans and screams and protests and...
Why use Thomas Cook, when you - at least officially - are allowed any weight on bord EasyJet (as long as you can lift it yourself), up to 23kg - max 2 units - hand luggage on BA (again you must be able to lift it yourself), and for i.e. KLM/AF you are allowed 12 kg, on Iberia 10 kg and most Star Alliance flights 8 kg, 2 x 7kg with Qantas domestic within Australia etc.
It's not even a case of "pay up or shut up" ;-)
