I have a friend who just bought a black paint MP. He actually uses it,
but refuses to peel the protective plastic off of the baseplate, because
he is afraid that it will get scratched. I tried to explain to him that
part of the charm of a BP camera is that when it gets worn you see the
brass come through it etc. 

He looked at me like I had just asked him if he had ever slept with his
mother, then took a look at my battered black TTL with the dented
baseplate and put the MP back in to the bag. He then mumbled something
about him not wanting his camera to play with my camera, because he was
afraid it may pick up some bad habits.

What to do?
