    Thank you. I had no idea. I got under the wire bringing two Asahi Pentax Spotmatics to the US during a short military leave in 1965. (At the time I thought it was such a cool camera.)

    Purchasing something overseas for personal use has no relation to unauthorized import for the sake of distribution. But if the brand name was blacked out, somebody was obviously up to grey market shenanigans. Anyway, those Spotmatics were wonderfully reliable.

    Re: Disturbing copies

    Iíve bought several accessories from Chinese makers on eBay for my Profoto strobes. They make no attempt to hide their own brand names. $50 for a honeycomb grid is much better than Profotoís $135. 10/10, would purchase again.
