Mine (#9311051) arrived today, NIB with manual and all. Helios 44-3 as lens.
And mine has NO auto diaphgram mechanism in camera, so please check if yours does have the lever inside body?
Instead of meter this ET version has weather symbols in a dial like E/EM-meterdial.
A real cheapie...

Thanks! Copied and edited the texts to ID=1326 but I am unable to download the pics from 1126, maybe it is our office firewall

Just need to reupload pictures from one to another and cut and paste the text. I can later delete the duplicate.

Vlad, how to join two wiki threads?
Looks like David and Richard have both opened topics for practically same camera:

If I am correct in reading Russian even the box says "no meter" and which lens (here preset 44-3). Manual does list several other lenses also, even automatic

And a view of the mount insides, no aperture lever in mine, but a lot of empty space!

Added material to wiki and corrected some. PLEASE ADD MORE SERIAL NUMBERS!

Best regards,

Somewhat related, I picked up a mostly plastic Zenit-TTL at the camera show in Chicago couple of months back, I'll try to throw that into catalog this weekend for you guys to see.

on my shelves there is :
one whithout ligtmeter but auto diaph.
another whith lightmeter and also auto diaph...so I must hunt for one whithout lighmeter and no diaph lever...!!!

(by the way ...if anyone can get for me a Zenit 122 black plastic cocking lever cap ...he will be welcome )

I had another plastic ET about the same time scale with both the Meter and the Auto diaphragm, now in the hands of another of our members,so I think you are right David. According to Alex at Fotoua.com there is also a metered non-auto version too, so that would cover most variations but there sem to have been a huge number of ET types

Mine definately does have the auto diaphragm mechanism. It would seem that they used this model, the Zenit-ET, to build whatever they could from the parts available. Has anyone any other versions?

I have one like that too Juhani its in the wiki-
Serial is 9337674 and I look at it as a plastic Zenit B!
