Do you love your Sony A99 full-framed DSLR, but find it's just not... aluminum-y enough? For an extra $8,700 (or $11,500 in total), you can score a Hasselblad HV remake with a Carl Zeiss 24-70mm f/2.8 lens instead. That'll get you a "much tougher" machined, high-grade aluminum body instead of the original's garden-variety magnesium. It also benefits from physical vapor deposition hardening, comes in a "high performance" case and, well, that's about it. You'll otherwise be taking the same (nice) snaps as Joe Sixpack with his regular A99, thanks to the original camera's 24.3-megapixel sensor and 25,600 max ISO. Still, what the deuce, Jarvis, fetch my checkbook.
