It's a security measure. No self respecting thief would be seen dead with one.
Resale value plummets after treatment

Why wouldn't you get something more functional for a fraction of the price?  Like lenscoat?

Only if I can make a Nikon look like a Canon.........

All you need to do is lower DR, higher banding, lower resolution, and higher pricing.

For that price, I rather add another lens to my kit or a monolight or some sort of battery pack etc but if someone sees value in this service then good for them.

I clicked on that "Configurator" link about 15 times before I figured out it was downloading a PDF -- in German.

Those designs are positively idiotic, and they all look the same. Why not at least do something interesting with this?

It might be good if you photograph a lot of kids.
You'd get some quizzical looks on their faces which might make for some good pictures.

But for 800 Euros, and not being reversible, it's a big NO from me.

its pretty cool, but two things that would make me not do this. 1, it would probably be short term happiness and then look stupid. and 2. Removes the word professional .. and I guess 3. Its quite expensive -_-

There would probably be a few that would stray from the norm.  Looks can be deceiving.  ;)
