...seen on the net:

I love these modified cameras... Not a fake, just a Zorki with a beautiful wartime 2/5cm Sonnar. And a lens plate which looks like a TSVVS's.

Yes, I also wonder about the absence of depth of field scale.
It would have been easy to engrave on the lens plate, like for the TSVVS.

The plate is self made, most likely milled from billet. And TSVVS has only served as a model. Eg the cone on the plate is different,it is easy to compare as I have my TSVVS here.

Best regards,

Lens mount is from a very late Contax (series O). Mount shows the 'blue dot' (near '6').

Absolutely right. This Sonnar belongs to a wartime batch of 5000 2/5cm Sonnars in bayonet mount. Many of them were originally mounted on Contaxes II and III, series M and O. The others were often converted into screw mounts: for example one on a Fed Arsenal, another on a Red Flag...

Amitiés. Jacques.
