Knowing these guys, it could be painted w/ Testor's model airplane paint. Avoid them at any cost!

I think I recognize this work. I believe it was Earl Scheib for $29.99.

Anyone got a link? I want to see how much they're asking. Something this "Rare" has to be at least $95,000

LOL

The painted lens barrel and skin are really over the top. These guys are shameless.

That Canon 7 looked like its important parts were masked and the whole thing just dunked into a vat of olive paint.

And lets not get into the "original olive painted leather case". I bet if you were to touch it with wet fingers the paint would just strip off.

For that money... its either this piece of stinking junk, or a MP. And we all know which one would we go for

Come on.. it'd probably look nice if you just replaced the leather. Red, maybe?

I knew their reputation wasn't good and their prices crazy.
I discover they are plain crooks....

I have seen more cameras in their 'shelf' that are non-factory painted but sold as genuine, like their green bergheil: it is painted with the same color as this canon!

Make no doubt about it--they are 100% "plain crooks". I had to contact a German consumer protection NGO to get my money back from them after they claimed their shipment to me was "lost", but couldn't/ wouldn't give me any verification of shipment.

My olive 7 looks nicer. When I bought it I knew that it was a repaint, but it is done so nice. It is just a nice addition in my collection.

Photo arsenal is good only for a laugh. I wonder if anyone actually buys the stuff they sell at the crazy prices they ask. No doubt they are asking a small fortune for this cats vomit green monstrosity.
