There are a lot of point 'n' shooters that will buy their elusive "pro" photographer status, rather than earn it. $2500 is chump change to many in this consumer group. It will sell alot. Shooting decent photos these days is easier than ever. Add the label, pull it out from your pocket and your friends will think you are a pro.
We hear this all the time. "Hey nice camera, no wonder you take great pictures".
Except they'll get more 'Pro' cred from buying a Leica, which a lot more people have heard of than Hasselblad, and you can get a LOT more Leica for the same cash (and I never thought I'd be saying that).
The problem with the Lunar is it's M240 money. The Stellar ranges from X1 to the new X Vario in price. Why wouldn't I buy the better camera with the more prestigious name?
I suspect the Stellar is going to sell a bunch of X Vario's when people walk in and the sales rep says 'for a $100 extra I can get you into a Leica'
