The Hasselblad HV will be available, for €8500 (excluding taxes) with the Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 24-70mm f/2.8 lens, and a special edition protective case. Hasselblad has this to say about the HV:

Always loved Hasselblad - had a 500 system for a number of years. But what planet are they living on now??? A Sony A99 in a new coat is not worthy of marketing as Sony have that pretty much wrapped up with the A7 (I know it's a different camera, but full frame 24mp is my point here). Hasselblad need to get back to what they do best - brilliant cameras that are different and unique to them. I'm not against them hitting the DSLR and mirrorless/compact marketings, but please do it with a new product!

For the price, I prefer a Pentax 645D, and I will also not feel like a fool ......
