Step 1) FED2
Step 2) Zorki 4
Step 3) Ask who is better Fedka or Oleg?
Step 4) FED 1 or Zorki 1
Step 5) Kiev 4
Step 6) Is this NKVD real?
Step 7) Any one have an extra take up spool?
Step 8) Jupiter-3
Step 9) I need some Pilobond
Step 10) Sanding or reverse electrolysis?
Step 11) Dang it! I forgot my postman's birthday--how do I make it up to him?
Step 12) One of each, please.
Step 13) I Now Can Only Express Myself In The True Proletariat Manner. I Scorn The Western Capitalist Camera Combine That Seeks To Undermine The Excellent Favored People's Photographic Reality!

One of the prettiest of all the early SLR's regardless of country, wish I'd kept mine
If your going to put a lot of films through the Fed 4, buy a supply of finger bandages. It must have one of the nastiest rewind knobs ever, used to remove loads of skin from my thumb!!!

Well the blame for the Zenith can be laid squarely at Mr Jay Javier's door - he has one on his site and I saw it and just knew I'd have to have one! Yes, it's one sweet camera, sort of honorary RF I think.

The FED 4 hasn't been used yet - I have several other cameras in the queue to be used first! I think I perceive the rewind issue though. It needed the VF/RF cleaning but otherwise seems good. The FED 5B is an olympic version and needs new curtains, otherwise in excellent condition (possibly *because* of the curtains!). Both needed the lenses re-lubing, unsurprisingly. The 5B is a little project for a rainy day I think...

To be honest I'm not keen on the looks of the 4 or 5, but I needed them to complete the collection of major FED models. Having said that, they are growing on me and the 4 seems to be a very good "user", plus they were both very cheap.

One of mine, unfortunately the rear element of that lens is scratched, like someone took to a little patch (right in the centre) with some 1200 wet and dry.

To tell the truth I'm not sure if I still have them, but I'll try to remember to have a look see when I get home for it.
If I remember properly, I had a lot of trouble with that too, until I realized that the dial itself didn't need to come off. The little "knob" part can be removed, but that is only for adjusting the mechanism.

Zorki-6 with rigid Industar-50. My favourite lens for daylight shooting. It only needs a hood. Would 37mm fit?
I had to use a cellphone for the pics, since digital camera is out of juice.

Most FSU lenses take 40.5mm screw-in accessories - except for J-9 which is 49 and the collapsibles which can only take 36 (?) slip-on...

According to the official KMZ archive site the figures for the rigid Industar 50 are:-
Screw in thread
Индустар-50 -- СпM33x0,5
Индустар-50-2 -- M35,5x0,5
Push on sizes (outside dia)
Индустар-50 -- 36 мм
Индустар-50-2 -- 37 мм

The lens should be marked whether it is a 50 or the later 50-2
Hope this helps.

see
http://www.zenit.istra.ru/archive/le...dustar-50.html


Further check would seem to indicate that the 50-2 was only made in 39mm screw for the Zenith SLR cameras, not the R/F cameras

Thanks for correcting me John, I never had any rigid I-50 and I thought they also used 40.5 as most other FSU LTM lenses...

Leitz A36 filters will fit, or copies of them!.
Trying to find 33 screw will be next to impossible, I had great difficulties 30 years ago, will be a lot worse now.
Your best bet would be these people. They are good to deal with. you can order on line.

On quick observation I noticed that the filter ring on the silver I50 seems a little smaller than on the black I 50.

Hi all!
i am new to here!!
got the Fed 2 for few years
i love this camera very much
This fed 2 have a neck strap hole (I think this is an Export version)
but it's original industar 61 has too many scratches
so I bought an Fed 50mm/f3.5 and Industar 61 L/D for it

Fed 2+Fed 35mm/f3.5




Fed 2+Industar 61 L/D

kimisaboy ~ Welcome to RFF. Nice looking FED there. When time permits, feel free to upload some of your photos to the RFF Gallery!

nzeeman ~ Howzabout some thoughts on your Zorki.10 there. Good shooter or no? Pros/cons? Don't hear them mentioned much here at the FSU corral.

Great thread... Lotsa beauties still arriving!

Here's a couple of mine...a Nicca IIIS with a Jupiter 8 and a Leica IIIC with an Industar 50...

I bought them from Russia to see how good they are -- and they're great! But when I get around to it, I'm going to unload them... and put back my Leica lenses ...

I assume the black one is an SLR lens, then its a late 50-2.
Filter size is 35.5mm x 0.5 screw in or 37mm slip on.
Its the so called "flat face" version.

Envious I hope, not jealous!!
Very good lens, usually an almost permanent fixture on the Zarya. Its not a r/f coupled lens so this is ideal. Sadly it wont fit my Bessas, nor strangely the Fed 2,it fouls the r/f arm. works fine on the Zorkis, I suppose after all its a KMZ lens, also OK on the Droog. Very handy it takes a 49mm filter. The finder has a neat parallax correction device.

i got it a week ago as a present from my friend. i shot a roll with it but didnt have money to scan and didnt have time to enlarge. i also have 5 other films waiting for enlargement and scan. i hope ill do it this week and then ill send samples. but negatives look nice to me - great exposure - every shot was good. i was expecting a lot of mistakes it has a nice viewfinder/rangefinder- bright and accurate. really a fun camera, maybe a little too big. my only complain is shutter button which have so long travel you have to press it almost 90 degrees to shoot.

Filter size is 35.5mm x 0.5 screw in or 37mm slip on.
Its the so called "flat face" version.
Nope, the black one is a rangefinder lens (seen on my Z6 somewhere in this thread). I guess they changed the size when the black SLR lens came out, so people could use the same filters/hoods on both.

Interesting. the KMZ site only lists this version as a SLR lens in 42mm thread.
