My new toys- Fed 2b and Zorki 4K
Here's a pic of my new FSU rangefinders.
A Fed 2b with I26M and Zorki 4K with J8. My Kiev 4AM isnt pictured as the black paint on it is still drying.
Fed 2 came in almost mint condition. Now i finally know what u mean by dim viewfinder. I followed Laika's thread on how to clean the viewfinder and now its much improved. Also adjusted the rangefinder. Oh yah, it came with the leather case... ewww! it really smells bad.
As for the Zorki, I bought this for the J8 (to go with my Bessa on its way) but the Zorki seems so usable that I think i'm keeping it as a spare for my Bessa.
Besides, a new leather covering from Aki Asahi makes it look kindda cool.
Having all 3 FSU cameras, I now understand what all the discussion is about regarding the feel and operation of each camera, what you guys liked or disliked about them.
now, to find cheap film and shoot lots!
