Cameras received from Oleg
This forum made me aware of Oleg as a good man to fix and source Soviet era cameras. I sent him a Fed 2 for a complete service/ CLA. I also decided to buy one of the cameras he had for sale.
They were in my hands promptly and initial examination found them better than expected. Firstly, the Fed 2: shutter cocking was much smoother, better than any other Soviet camera I have tried. The viewfinder is now crystal clear and the rangefinder squares properly aligned and easily seen, making focussing very easy.
The Zorki 1 is as good as the Fed just described.
I would recommend Oleg to anyone.
Photos taken with the cameras coming soon.
