Meet my FED 1, 2, early 3 & later 3 (not sure if that's how you refer to the 2 different model 3 cameras)
The 3's, like all the others, were given letters as well to distinguish them, like FED 3d and so on (usually on the passport). Normally I'd say where to look to find all the varieties but I don't want to be the first to push you down that slippery slope...
BTW, I've no problems with the mixing of former USSR lenses and bodies, just beware of 39mm mounts from the Zenits when looking for lenses.
