I thought about this. Ebrahim bragged about being involved in de development of the rangefinder and having samples sent to them. I know for a fact SLR magic has these testing programs. Essentially you sign up for a small discount and get the product sent early to you. I see it as more of an SLR sales technique than actually being envolved in the development. So my guess is that Ebrahim applied for that and then poured a bit of catfish sauce over the story.

Hopefully sir ! SLR magic openly said they had no idea who he was, just tickled a nerve - get rid of the thing quick :)

Yes I also emailed SLR about it. They are now helpful and looking into the matter and see how they can assist. Their product manager will be following up on the case.

There is a technical problem with the SLR magic Rangefinder. A rear thread fitting problem. It only goes in a quarter of a turn. At first I though it was the redstan clamp I have, but now after contacting SLR magic it appears to be the Rangefinder itself. See SLR's response on email below. And to understand the problem, see the first part of this video (password: redstan):

What sucks the most is that we have a buyer at the moment. I'm going to inform him about this.

      I'm selling a copy of the smallest Anamorphic lens in the world, the Baby Hypergonar 1.75x. It's been said there were only about 50 of these ever made. Designed by the OG, Henri Chretien, and made in 1957.
      It is in great condition. Comes with a little black carry case. Really lovely copy, no scatches, fungus, haze. Body is in great shape. There are a few small coating blemishes on the front, but they are so hard to see I couldn't even capture them in the pictures, and they don't show up in performance. 
      Can be used by just focusing your taking lens or in combination with a single focus variable diopter. Neutral unique flares and beautiful rendering.
      - PRICE: $1500 USD
      - LENS NAME: Baby Hypergonar
      - CONDITION: Near Mint Optics, Mint Body
      - PAYMENT METHOD: PayPal
      - LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA, USA
      - FEES & SHIPPING: PayPal fees and shipping paid by buyer.
       
      Please PM me if interested
      .
