He has a bright red one also. It looks very weird but perhaps stylish with plaid or spotted camera bag?

The hue is a bit too strong for me. Maybe in a lighter tint. I'd like to get something in grey hammer tone some day. I checked out the store, and they have a great inventory, plus some other color painted cameras. The neon green Pen F is quite over the top.

Looks toyishly cool. Vintage camera gets plastic era disguise.

Seeing as how my canon p just jammed up and will cost almost as much as one of these already cla'd colored p's to fix I'm seriously debating getting one but the paint job quality isn't looking all that great to me in some of these images.

You’re getting a cla-d camera w paint job just for the price to fix ur broken camera, and u have an issue that the paint job may not be perfect?!
C’mon!

True its awfully tempting but I also have other cameras that need some kinks worked out as well Just need to decide what comes first.

I looked at the seller's history and behold yellow p

I know Ps are prone to wrinkly shutters (does it actually matter?) and its only on his most expensive one that he shows the shutter curtain.

Neon green Olympus F looks off the rocker. Completely out of character, like Hello Kitty Leica. I like it in a weird way.

Well, I have always wanted an OM-1 or OM-2 in Safari green. Maybe they can do one up for me. Might as well get the Winder 2 done at the same time.

Are you sure it was not painted by Kai Wong (ex of Digital Rev TV Channel). He has "form" for this kind of thing having painted Nikons, Canons AND a Leica M9.

If not the seller may be a fan boy of Kai.

At least the camera (a) would be hard to lose (no matter how hard you tried) and (b) would be unlikely to be stolen.
