Thanks in advance!
The I-50 and I-22 project 18mm from the lens flange when collapsed - not including a lens cap/filter etc. It's a lot smaller than the rigid version. It makes a Zorki 1 pocketable - if you have fairly large pockets and don't mind the weight in them! Something like an inside jacket pocket will accommodate it.
By the way, you'd probably have got a quicker answer if you'd posted in the FSU sub-forum.
