'' NEW '' KIEV 4a !
It's my 62nd and I just received a gift of that Kev 4a 1979 T.O.E camera from UK .
It's immaculate ! Even the strap seems to have had little use .
The rangefinder is clear and spot on , it's pristine inside .
It's a liitle stiff , but far better than anything non-CLA I have bought -
it seems to get better with every shutter action .[ after all , it is not quite 40 years old - positively junior in Conatx / Kiev terms !
It comes with a foam box with sleeve showing a Zorki 4 K , marked just
Rangefinder , so economies of scale here .
The manual is as new , and the UK passport not filled in .
In all , for a late Kiev , it's probably as good as it gets !!!
I can't think of ANY camera of the late 70s which I could buy in this
virtually , as new condition for the princely sum of £ 50 incl postage .
I know I said that I favour the Kiev 4 and selenium meter , and have a 1951 Kiev II ... but there is no meter to die with my Kiev 4a , and it's
an interesting contrast to the Kiev II .
I must re-learn how to post pics !!
