Then maybe all planets?

I wonder if even this little bit of repacking and rebranding is worth to them, how many they can sell? How many wealthy lunatics is out there?

The mini-M seems to be selling just fine by all accounts. I have a feeling that there is a bizzaro alt forum out there filled with mini-M and Lunar/Stellar/Solar buyers, who are laughing at people such as us who cannot afford such fine crafts.

Where's the A99/Universe, A77/Galaxy, and the RX1/ Solar.
And good thing they are built with über exotic materials, or they would only create ordinary photos like our inferior versions....

I'm fairly confident the Big Bust will come first.

I bet for a 'black hole' model. That one will suck all your money definitively.

Haha.

Also: priced at $1600-3200, depending on the type of wood you select for the grip.

mini-M, despite being slightly insulting to "M" (not that one from Bond movies), is actually quite ok camera. Decent APS-C sensor, ok-ish reach of lens and very good lens quality, even tho bit slower. Only problem is that X-E1 + 18-55 is faster and most likely very close to that quality too. Its not that overpriced as Hasselblad lunatic series..

Also, the "Mini M" is a Leica, inside and out with a Leica lens. The Lunar is a $1,000 Sony with a piece of wood bolted on to it, selling for 7 times the original price.

They can make the firmware to skip the weakest range of the lens, and make the lens slower (how about a 35-90mm equivalent f 4.5-6.7 lens) so that the wide open performance become stellar.

I think they are targeting the same kind of people who would use Vertu phone. It's not just a camera, but also an accessory.... how many times is the cost of Hermes bag compare to a Coach? Somehow it just reflex the fact that there are people so rich that they don't care about being charged for 7 times for an camera that is functionally identical to an ordinary one.

About the Leica mini M, at least the entire camera is their design. Leica do rebrand Panasonic compact cameras they don't charge 7x as much.

And they only have to plunder exotic woods from three untouched rainforests!

Put me down for ten!

The past is the past. NASA couldn't afford Hasselblad now. They'll be forced to buy Sony and screw on their own wooden handles.

That would be a very uncomfortable camera for everyone involved.
