Festival of Youth

Hi,
is camera with Festival of youth engraving worth more?

I'm interested in this one since it's priced not different than the normal one

I see the listing is afflicted with the usual wildly-inaccurate default ebay descriptive text. Does anyone know how to approach ebay about getting these corrected?

Cheers,
Dez

They are not worth any more unless you are willing to pay it. The commemorative "Festival of Youth" engraved examples are very common so they really aren't worth any premium. As for incorrect descriptions, Dez, message the seller and tell them. They *might* amend the listing - or not! I have told one particular UK seller several times about his over-hyped and inaccurate descriptions on FSU gear. He usually amends that listing then the next one contains the usual rubbish about how Zorkis were made in Krasnogorsk, in the Ukraine (must've moved it!) using captured german tooling from Zeiss.

If the Z1 S works, the price is quite reasonable considering it comes with that nice industar lens and the description 'Festivalnia' is a nice addition...

It's not the seller's verbiage that concerns me, it's the default guff that ebay will always insert if you don't try hard to avoid it. In descriptions of old cameras, this stuff is almost always wrong, often hilariously so.
