No problem, full refund took it right back. Seller had seemingly no camera knowledge.

I opened it there was no electronics in it. Oh and it didn't pass light, as in the lens part was not transparent??????

I wish I would have taken more pictures of it.

I thought those were only 24-105Li and 70-200Li?

Either way, amusingly, those actually look better than the pics of this fake.

No it wasn't. I owned one of those once. This had glass both at the top and the bottom but then something internal that was solid non-transparent. It was shockingly bad like you would have to go out of your way to make a lens this terrible.

$500+ seems like a whole lotta money for a "prop" camera.

If you look at the photos closely, it is not a 6D. The most obvious giveaway is the the large eyecup.

It is actually a very good "dummy" 7D Mk I with a pop-up flash.....

Next time, pay more than $20. Seriously though, I can't believe that the seller wasn't aware of what he was selling. Good thing you got your money back.
