Here’s a good one. Take a black K2 and repair it with parts from a silver one and then put it on eBay listing it as a “Rare Panda Face Pentax K2”.

You'd have thought that they could at least paint the silver parts to match the rest of it...

Seriously, has anyone ever managed to match the black paint finish? I have an MV1 here which was missing the cosmetic top for the winder. I replaced it with a silver one from a seriously jammed MG, but obviously I'd like to give it a quick coat of paint so it'll match the rest of the camera.

After one failed attempt I now have a nearly perfect MG:



The previous example turned out to have an intermittent jamming problem which was beyond my abilities to fix, and professional servicing would cost more than a fully functional example. This second one has a tiny bit of scuffing around one strap lug and arrived with a cracked focussing screen, which I replaced with the good one from the jammed example. It still has the protective transparent sticker on the baseplate!

Did you notice the descriptive text is signed, "RH?"

Yes, but the location of the item is listed as the UK. I don't think Hong Kong can pass as the UK since expiration of the lease 10 or so years ago.

They do give an address in the UK, which wouldn't be too hard to check out. RH might be the initials of the seller.

From the eBay listing: "This camera has been checked and tested, and is fully working".

The seller states all is well, I bet!!

The ASA dial and a few other issues!

Red Lizard Pentax LX

After the Black Lizard LX, I also replaced the skin on my second LX with another sking from cameraleather.com

These skins are just so nice.

Cheers,

Luc
