1) forget the box - it won't make your pictures better.
2) why should you care what we think of the aesthetics of your camera? Just go shoot it.
3) Stay away from a lens with haze unless it is deeply, deeply, discounted. Like "price of a full CLA" discounted. Who knows what other issues it has?
4) Ebay has lots of C/V 35 1.7's in LTM that cost less than US $500.
5) Look at Canon screw mount lenses, if you are looking for an alternative to C/V.
