Yes, that sounds a bit like a stretch...and the " There are only two known all-black models" bit leaves room to ponder how many "unknown" ones there could be. I see the source for the info is from the Canon online camera museum, but nowhere there it states anything about there only being two known. I suspect whoever wrote the wikipedia article took some liberty to add that, and wikipedia editors neglected to put the BS alert aka citation needed to it. That camera "museum" is an interesting resource though....and I would recommend anyone with an interest in Canon cameras to check it out. (http://www.canon.com/camera-museum/)

Maybe your friend has got something special there, idk. I am not interested in collecting cameras anymore....
