The high-end camera with interchangeable lenses was launched in 5 different models built using some of the finest materials. The Swedish company has launched a brand new limited edition of the Lunar model timed its launch to coincide with Chinese New Year (Jan 31st). The latest model to join the range cosmetically has the same appearance as the rest of the Lunar models but is crafted out of more exquisite materials to make it stand out from the rest.

The company will make only 200 of these limited edition Lunar cameras and each unit will be sequentially numbered. The premium limited edition camera comes with a premium price-tag, it is priced at €7,200 ($9,839 approximately).
