icexe: Those knobs on top look like they would be hard to use.

zavart: I have read some of the comments regarding new Hasselblad and I must say I am totally amazed by how emotional they are! I MYSELF like the look of the new camera hassy has designed ! Yes, it's very futuristic ...and that's what I like about it. I suppose if somebody had shown the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador to the people living in the nineteen twenties he would have been met by similar reception ! i.e. what an ugly contraption ! The beauty is truly in the eye of the beholder ! But sometimes fashion trends and the passage of time also changes our perception of what we regard as beautiful ( In Rubens times present day fashion models would be regarded as downright ugly ). In the end of the day we fortunately CAN CHOOSE of what we like and what we buy ! Vive la difference !!!

The Lunar IS a sony NEX in a different "Dress" its got no Hassleblad components (Or Designs) other than the (Very Ugly)Outer caseing
Which is why people think its a CON ....

Hassy's Medium Format cameras are Also rebadged FUJI's

scrane: Hasselblad is now finished, isn't it? Almost overnight the brand has a nasty odor.

Who cares if Hassleblad go under FUJI can still sell the medium format cameras under their own name .......

Valiant Thor: After the camera is complete, the greatest part will be watching his video of how he did it. Your eyes will tear up and you'll need a full box of Kleenex on hand as he describes the process with such emotion that you'd think he just cured cancer.

raincoat: Like Leica and Panasonic, the next Hass will just be an overpriced Sony.
Way to go cheapening your brand image.

Now at least Sony can claim their flash mount and MS card is used by more than one company and is an 'international standard'.

Yes Leica sticks the red dot on Panasonic compacts ..BUT Leica also makes top notch cameras (Niche) and fantastic (Expensive ) Lenses
Hassleblad just re-badge Fuji 645 cameras and stick Fuji lenses on them I believe the Back is an IMACON (made /Assembled in Denmark

"You keep on smoking grass DickyUK Oooooo you did not get the news, Sony bought Half of Olympus the Other day ;)"

extman: Hasselblad is just a marketing company now. They don't design anything anymore, they jusy rebrand and redistribute.
XPAN and H system is Fujifilm. Now Sony's turn.

It will just be a Sony in a new frock :) a very expensive new frock ...

Jan Kritzinger: In stead of Hasselblad bodies, I'd rather want to see some Hasselbald E-mount glass! Sony bodies are perfect.

When did Hassleblad EVER make lenses ????
they have always used other peoples lenses
namely... Fujinon, Kodak (Badged), Rodenstock
and Schneider

"The Swedish company Hasselblad, pioneer and developer of the H System"
Now this is a JOKE ... the H system is a Re-badged FUJI which is sold in Japan as a FUJI

and how Swedish is Hasselblad ??? they dont make cameras there anymore and they arnt Swedish owned anymore
