Ha, ha!
When I saw your post, Alexey, I rushed to my board, but the Fed 1a s/n 4642 is always here!
We already discussed about this camera here.

For me, it's a mix Fed/Leica, with a Leica shutter box. All that was re-chromed together: the chrome is homogeneous and finer than on the other pre production prewar cameras. As for the lens, a mix again with the body of an Elmar and the optics from a Fed (position of the diaphragm). Really, much work: the owner was attached to this camera.

Amitiés. Jacques.

Louiz greetings!
Thank you, but these cameras are not mine, but my friend S.Pseunok ....

Hello Levon
Are you producing those cameras?
The number on the booklet is Fantastic!
Luiz Paracampo Posted - Jan 22 2018 : 5:38:20 PM
strange at least the different logos

Thanks Jacques
I saw recently Zorki number 67XX. There were "old" speed dial and "old" knobs.
levonsa Posted - Sep 29 2017 : 10:17:28 AM
In a particular case, Zorki #07026 is not authentic. In Russia, such options are called "Cutlet".
But the top cover in any case is original and that's why we will be happy because it has a twin.
Jacques M. Posted - Sep 29 2017 : 09:20:33 AM
I have a good listing about Fed-Zorki and Zorki 1a (but I am not alone, eh, Alexey!). It seems that speed dials and button release were mixed up to s/n 9000-10000.

So, a great box with mixed parts, probably...

Amitiés. Jacques.
Alfa2 Posted - Sep 29 2017 : 03:35:05 AM
Yes, I wonder if the speed dial was changed in 7076 in a service some yesrs after production.
Or maybe in a factory there was one box with "old" and "new" speed dials and worker choosed them randomly.
Jacques M. Posted - Sep 28 2017 : 05:47:40 AM

Interesting. It seems that the s/n 7027 has a Fed-Zorki speed dial, and the 7026 already a Zorki one.
Thanks, Alexey.
levonsa Posted - Sep 28 2017 : 01:59:58 AM
Thank you so much Enn Helemäe!


Jacques M. Posted - Sep 16 2017 : 2:35:04 PM

Bravo, Altix!
So, a 1,5/5cm lens, officially. But possibly 6cm, by S.H., and by the diameter...

Two fake Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnars in Contax mount. The first picture is taken from the post of S.H. in

Jacques, Guido hello!
Thank you for viewing this post regularly!
Jacques, of course I do not have three FS-2s.
I have only one copy.
Jacques M. Posted - Sep 11 2017 : 01:05:38 AM

No, I had not seen that, Guido.
I was just wondering about these ultra rare items... (thanks, Alexey!)

It seems that the "4" are not always the same, open or closed. Probably you are right. But I am not sure to see correctly.

Amitiés. Jacques.
Guido Posted - Sep 10 2017 : 2:51:28 PM

Hello Alexey, Jacques

Do you have seen the "4" in the s/n? I'm wondering ...

Best wishes - Guido
Jacques M. Posted - Sep 10 2017 : 2:39:46 PM

Ha ha!
If you have too many photosnipers at home, perhaps some of us could help you, Alexey?
But I suppose that the three ones are not yours...
If possible, would you have the s/n of the bodies, just to compare with the others we have?

Amitiés. Jacques.

Jacques M. Posted - Jun 24 2017 : 2:04:19 PM


It seems the lens serial number is always the same...

Fred_L Posted - Jun 24 2017 : 04:36:19 AM
Hi all

I have the black one for several years and the chrome one arrived last week from an English auction room...
Maybe they come from different areas and lens engraving is different, but how to explain the consecutive numbers on bodies and same number on lenses??? It's more than a coincidence I think... I suppose they were made by same guy?

Jacques M. Posted - Jun 23 2017 : 08:21:54 AM
Hi Fred!

You have them made by special order?
You are too strong!

Amitiés. Jacques.
Luiz Paracampo Posted - Jun 23 2017 : 07:45:35 AM
these are "forced" twins once botha ameras belong from diferente eras
Lens engraving fonts are also diferente
Fred_L Posted - Jun 22 2017 : 10:42:19 AM

Thank you Jacques! I wish you good mood!!!
Jacques M. Posted - May 08 2017 : 05:49:46 AM

Thanks, Alexey for these two cameras, a NKVD 1d and a S.
So, once more we see that the Fed S certainly were not numbered by batches. Really very curious.

I really wonder if we will find the same for Fed accessories: http://ussrphoto.com/Forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3180

Thank you, Vlad!
Vlad Posted - Dec 21 2016 : 4:26:43 PM
These are all fantastic! Alexey, how long does it take you to search for all these twins?! This is incredible! Keep posting them!

levonsa Posted - Dec 20 2016 : 3:59:44 PM
Hello friends! Here's another pair ....

No twins in all those Sports?
What about amongst other members?
I have #2087

Best regards,
Fred_L Posted - Dec 12 2016 : 1:24:17 PM
Hi Jacques

Of course it could be interesting.
But I need more time to prepare cameras, to take pics and post them here..
I am not retired !!!!
May be in a few years or before if I get fired.....

Jacques M. Posted - Dec 12 2016 : 03:00:06 AM

To be serious.
Perhaps you could open a specific thread about the Sport, Fred?
It would be much interesting to know the detailed evolution of this series.
You are the only one who can do that, certainly...
