Docno: Most of you people don't get it because you don't understand the mindset of the target market. I'm sure this ugly thing is not aimed at the US or Western Europe. It's target markets are the Middle East, Russia, and Asia where bling is king. And it may very well do fine enough in those places ... just as Nokia had some success selling over-priced old-tech blinged-up phones in its Vertu line. [Imagine a US$80K mobile phone with ruby encrusted keys... people bought it!] If you're putting fancy stuff on existing technology, you don't need to sell a whole lot of units to come out ahead, especially if you add some crazy-big margins.

BTW, I'm a NEX7 owner, and anyone whose ever picked one up will know it's a damn fine camera for an APS-C. That said, I would never buy this monstrosity even if I had that amount of change knocking about in my pockets

I think you are totally right but this may hurt Hasselblad reputation. Or not.
Time will tell.
By the way, I am very, very happy with my Nex 7 too.

pinibz: Children are also dying in UK, US, NATO bombings in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq.
Of course there is death in many other conflicts around the world. Thousands of Syrian children died this year by their own people.
From some reason you never see images winning contests from these conflicts. I wonder if that has anything to do with the residence of most judges or some hidden agenda...

Last year winner was a picture taken in Yemen...

Mr Alessandrini:

Personally I expect innovation from Hasselblad and not this kind of pointless luxury object which, as somebody pointed out, will be obsolete in a not distant future...

Welcome to the consumer products market and good luck!

Congratulations and thanks for your explanation. The information "Shutter Speed: 1/10 sec" can be confusing.

Well done!!!
