Bad move. I would seriously have the guy pay to have it professionally cleaned as well.

Oh my, that isn't very cool at all.  I would have been telling the person to clean it.  Don't they know that oils and such aren't exactly good for cameras!?

I would struggle with keeping my cool with that guy.  No joke, nothing funny about that.

Bad taste in thinking this would be funny at all.  I agree with Gary, this is vandalism here.

Speaking of insurance, would insurance cover stupidity like this?

… would possibly fall within the deductible amount!

Light is free… capturing it is not!

It should be something covered and dinged on the not so smart persons insurance.  :nunu:
