    Indeed, but this kind of rebranding is not uncommon. It's like the Aston
    Martin Cygnet, the small hatchback they released back in 2011 just to
    conform to some EU emission regulations. The Cygnet was a Toyota IQ with
    a new grille and that's pretty much it. It cost three times as much as
    the Toyota, in spite of being identical.

    The price difference between the Hasselblad and the NEX-7 is even
    larger, but Hasselblad insist they have the same margins on the Lunar as
    on their other cameras and that they're just using better quality
    material. I don't know what that's supposed to mean. Given the name - is
    it space safe? Will NASA use it on the moon? :)[/QUOTE]

    Anyone remember the Cadillac Cimarron back in the 1970s? It was just a
    Chevy with a Cadillac nameplate, but priced like a Cadillac. Only
    person I knew stupid enough to buy one was my stepmother, but that was
    to be expected.

    All right, since you seem to think that FUNCTION does not matter and
    DURABILITY does not matter in a camera, what exactly DOES matter in your
    opinion?
    Well when you actually do know something get back to us.

    I'm curious--in your real life how often do you get punched out for no
    reason that you can comprehend?

    My auntie bought the Lincoln equivalent, the Versaille, which was a Ford
    Granada with Lincoln badges and a different paint job.

    I looked at that car, took a test drive, and declined.

    The Cadillac dealership that I purchased my Sedan de Ville from in the
    80s furnished a loaner car when a customer took their car in for
    service. I was given a Cimarron once, and found that putting the car
    in PARK forced my knuckles against the radio tuner controls. Every
    time I did this, it changed the station.

    That's a premium labour saving luxury feature.

  8. That it gets me my photos and doesn't get in the way.

    Add to that that I can't see that Hassi having more/better
    function through more expensive materials (otherwise that may
    be a factor), and that most cameras do have enough durability
    for most people already, then you see where I'm coming from.

    Well, why don't you? You didn't have anything you knew in
    the post I answered to, it seems, and it didn't stop you.
    I don't even get punched for reasons I can comprehend.

    Maybe you should work harder at your anger management.

    So what one word would you associate with this property?
    Yeah, I see you're coming from arguing for the sake of argument.
    Because I'm not making an assertion, you in a backhanded way were.
    So you don't get out much?
    What difference will my "anger management" make to those around _you_?
