FED-Zorki
1948-1949

Pictured is a FED-Zorki of 1948. This type originated the Zorki line, and its engraving shows the transition from the FED, made in Kharkov to the Zorki, made at KMZ near Moscow. The old KMZ logo on the camera and on the lens can be seen.

Only 5.700 FED-Zorkis were made, and they have always been highly sought collectibles. (Source www.fedka.com)

Some 900 to 1000 FED-Zorki 1949 were made. The first know is s/n 04811, the last 05749. The first known Zorki-1a is 05784. There are no real differences between the 1948 and the 1949 besides the engraving on the top plate for the year. Most of the 1949 units have shutters with 1/500 seconds and crisp paint instead of bright paint under the bottom plate. The last known with 1/1000 seconds speed is 04903. Most of them were cobined with the coated Industar-22 (K340 by Princelle).

Two more photos of an earlier unit #02161 with Industar-22, the second new lens produced after the war, the first was Industar-23 for Moskva cameras. The two last photos of the 1949 # 05159.
