That was from long ago, Benny. My most recent adventure involved a Leica CL with the 40mm and 90mm lenses. First off, they didn't ship it with what was shown in the photos, but with some substitute parts. One of the two Leica lens caps became some generic snap-on. The Leica cap that did get shipped wouldn't detach from the hood. So I ordered a replacement cap for the one that got swapped out because the seller said it got lost before the shipment, and they didn't have another one to send.
While I was waiting for it, and trying to determine if I would need to get a second one, I test fitted the cap I had to the other hood, and it fit. I got to checking the slot that the grippers on the cap fit into the hood, and found that on the one hood it was cut too wide and deep (Leica factory item). This allowed the grippers to get too good of a purchase, and it wouldn't let go when it was supposed to, causing me to have to utilize a screwdriver to remove it. Then after looking at other photos of the 90mm lens, I realized the hood that was sent is meant for the 40mm, not the 90mm, so I had to order another hood. All was good with the lenses then after the replacement hood and cap arrived.
The camera, well, that was a different matter. Someone did a very sloppy repaint of the inside of the camera, with bubbles, and ridges all over the place where the film was supposed to move over either side of the film gate. I sanded it down with some 1500 grit paper, then buffed it with a Dremel wheel until I was satisfied there was nothing left to scratch the film.
With some prior knowledge of the system, and a closer inspection of the description photos, I likely would have steered clear of that sale, but there were not many available with the two lenses included, and putting together a kit out of separate parts was going to cost another $400-600. The seller did refund me the cost of replacing the one lens cap, but I didn't press the issue about the other hood because I found that much later. He also didn't own up to doing the crappy paint job. I think he put together the outfit from items that had made their way to his shop over time. Then some very good customer came in one day and needed a cap for their lens, so he took one from the outfit that was on eBay sale.
Needless to say, I don't plan on buying anything from him again, although he had a very nice selection of Leica items on eBay. It doesn't matter if they are the best priced, and best looking items, I'll never give him the chance to mess over me again.
