    Not sure about the gold, but you can easily get replacement leather in all sorts of colors and textures. No idea about the gold, however. I guess someone could have done that or had someone do it as well. Hmmm

    Soviet imitation. There's a Lubitel inside. I'm surprised that there are no swastikas and that it isn't engraved "Luftwaffe Eigentum."

    I have never seen a Lubitel that was so sophisticated. They must have done an awful lot of work before it began to look like that.

    I think Dan was joking with the Lubitel thing. It is a 2.8C that has some really bad hand cut covering glued on and some sort of gold plating. I have seen the gold plating done on a few different Rolleis. The price of 300 EUR is about right for an average ugly 2.8C.

    Hmpfff. First time I've seen someone turn a Rollei into a Lubitel.

    The white leather job is atrocious. It looks like a middle aged man's wardrobe in the 1970's - white belt, white shoes, shiny green polyester leisure suit and a white polyester shirt with long pointed collar: a 'Full Cleveland'.

    What? Me make a joke? Me, who has no sense of humor at all? Never.

    If you want a joke, and on target to boot, consider the Rolleiflex Aurum.
