Hi all, just looked at OK Vintage Cameras https://www.okvintagecamera.com/ and I see Oleg has closed the shop and is leaving Russia. A great shame as he was a good source of parts and repairs.

I bought from him and it was marvellous. We will miss him. Seen the situation in Russia, I understand his move and I wish him all the best for his new life. And maybe we will meet him again. At least, I would be pleased...

Hopefully he'll set up shop in another country, specialists like him are very rare.

I think he can open a store in another country because he is a reliable supplier of parts. Of course, it will be difficult to set up supplies, but I'm sure he can do it. I don't work as a photographer, but I like taking pictures. I use the Panasonic Lumix G7 because it's a great camera for beginners and experienced photographers. When I decided to buy a new lens for macro photography, I had a hard time because there were so many different models on the market. But the information I read here, https://lensespro.org/best-lenses-for-panasonic-lumix-g7/, helped me decide. I bought a great lens at a reasonable price.

Ural Motorcycles moved to Petropavlovsk Kazakhstan this summer to be able to continue production, so this happens now, and smaller companies can make it easier.

Best regards,

Even though I've never used his services or bought a camera from him, I too hope he can start again. He has a good reputation on "Rangefinder Forum", and there's any news there, I'll try and remember to post it here, if the news hasn't reached this site first.

Well there are good news: Oleg posted this on his facebook:

Hello friends!
Christmas holiday are coming and I want to bring you a good news. I resume my camera selling and camera repair service from EU.
It was a not simple year for me and my family. After war in Ukraine was started we are judged a future of Russia and made a decision to leave our country. And we did it. Now we are in Bratislava, Slovakia. I hope it was a well-becoming decision, especially for my 15-yo son Ilia.
So, I do not want to write many words. All is done. I open my site again!
My new location is very convenient for my EU customers. No more customs problems for European people.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Could someone please change the title of this thread? It should be "OK Vintage Cameras Re-opened". I bought from Oleg and it was wonderful. So he deserves it...

We all wish him good luck!
