Sadly someone will probably pay it hoping to be able to sell their AA for more money.

It's jewelry. Jewelry is expensive.

Plastic jewelry. I wonder if it can be 3D printed.

That's not half bad compared to the 50mm Lens hood at KEH going for $4,925

Come on, it's worth it -- both are listed in Excellent or Excellent-Plus condition.

So why are they asking for an odd number price like $4925? Because $4900 would be too low and $4950 would be too high?

Yeah, I just saw that.

I just donít get it. I mean I understand rarity but usually that is just part of the equation for high prices. I also have a feeling that something like this would be really really easy to counterfeit as there are no serial numbers, or no log of them because it is a freakin lens hood. And not some fancy, ornate, wow look at the craftsmanship here item.

based on the high prices I'm surprised that some guy with a lathe and a mill isn't already counterfeiting them. They are not at all complicated in their design, and they would be easy to make. All that it would take is for one guy with a CNC machine to put an end to those ridiculous prices. The hardest part of the job would be duplicating the finish. I think that the reason this hasn't happened already is that the average millwright isn't a Leica collector.

LLL is already making Leica hood replicas that look identical to the 'real' ones.

It does not seem to me that there is any way of determining provenance of a lens hood, so I wouldn't trust paying $5K for one when it may just be a knock off.
