      It almost looks like a different fish in each picture. I think I'm the bane of most dealers. I ask for a ton of pics, spend forever deciding, and then don't normally get anything. I'd ask for a few more pics with less glare. I think that's the big thing.

      I don;t know what will happen with the sumi. I believe that the charcoal look is due to the sheen of the metallic skin...
