The Bespoke A7, and Stellar Wasn't Stellar Enough

(news)

Hasselblad's wood carvers just can't seem to be kept in check. One day after the Sony announcement, word leaked that Hasselblad was developing their version of the A7 with a wood grip, all for only US$8000 more than the original and called the Solar. 

Now as if all this customization for a price wasn't enough, Hasselblad has also announced a Stellar Special Edition. In other words, a special edition of a special edition. The trick this time is body colors (black, white, orange) with black or white leather cases and straps.

And yes, the wood changes. The black Stellar gets a carbon fiber grip instead of carved wood. Orange gets wenge, and white gets padouk. So many choices, so many dollars.
