    Going by the mantra of "Quality, quality, quality" for an acceptance criteria when dealing with TR awards ( and this being one of the highest ) I would walk away FAST!

    There are EK2's looking far, far, far ( did I say Far? ) crisper than this thing ....... I hope you can get your money back.

    I've never seen a case stamped like that...the color looks funny....doesn't look at all like mine, which is in 'great' condition, as does this...

    This one is bad.

    Note the inner corner shape to the frame.

    This is the well known fake called the 'rounder' due to those over rounded inner corners

    There is a thread about them on this forum
