Wow! Am I to assume correctly that is very early FED-Zorki?? and 1/1000s speed?? I'm sorry I don't have FED-Zorki, but did that one have a 1/1000?

Hello Vlad

Yes, the FED-KMZ is the forerunner of the FED-Zorki build in 1948, something like a preserie with +/- 100 items.

And yes, the FED-KMZ has 1/1000, also the bigger parts of the FED-Zorki has 1/1000 but not all. Some of the also rare Zorki 1a (1949) has also 1/1000.

@Alain

Very nice item! ;-)

Best regards - Guido

Hello Alain

Yes, the "Z" was used through about 1954, later Zorki 1 (and other models) used "B" instead. It's a *real* copy! ;-)

Best wishes - Guido

Fine camera, Alain!

KMZ probably got some Fed S 1/1000 mechanisms for these ultra rare Fed-KMZ, before they used the last ones on Fed-Zorkis, and perhaps on 1a... It would explain the "Z" instead of "B".

Amitiés. Jacques.
