Jacques, thanks for the link.

Wow, what the price. But there were only 40 made. And the price is comparable with price of e.g. Canon 5D mk IV, which is made in milions of pieces.]]>

I dig out this thread after having tried to read this article:

Thanks, Luiz, for the link!
It seems, if I understand correctly the first part, that many (all? some?) Fed 1 have an inscription inside, giving the date of manufacture.

I have checked some of my Fed 1, and my last 1e s/n 183231 has 30 VIII engraved inside. So, it should have been made the 30 of august 1941, certainly at Kharkov, like all the other numbered 1e we know.

Amitiés. Jacques.]]>

Hello Gentlemen,

I've read this article before, it's just an exploratory piece based on various information and does not offer any conclusions. It has evidence for and against German manufacture as well as running theories of KMZ, FED and Almaz production. As for the shown passport, it is not a VTSVS/TSVVS camera passport - it is a passport for a mechanical part that was actually used by topographical service, a "control mesh" and has nothing to do with the camera but has to do with the VTS service.

The article does offer indepth analysis of various mechanical details of the camera so that part is very well written. Especially the part when it says that the simplification of parts has been done like it has been done on FED factory to be able to mass manufacture cameras easily - that's a definite argument against German origin.

Having been able to hold a few of these cameras in my hands, I will keep saying it was too high of a quality camera to be done at the time by Soviet manufacture.. it just feels too foreign and I would be very surprised if it was made on Soviet factory other than major known soviet camera factories due to the highest quality of manufacture exhibited only by a camera maker that has been making similar cameras for many years... but I digress [:)]

Introduction and a question about screws. minnime@oxle.com http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3160 Collectors and Users Open Forum Fri, 17 Feb 2017 12:25:48 +0200 http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3160
first of all I´d like to introduce myself.
I´m from germany and got kind of addicted to USSR lenses. Theya all perform very well on my Fuji X-T10.
I got into those lenses because I wanted good glass for cheap first, but then I realised theyr artistic character.

My question is the following:

I have some Helios lenses and since yesterday a Zenit FS-12 set with a Tair 3 (idk if S or A or...).
I had to clean a Helios lens and at the Tair to repair the diaphragma. Everything was fine and not problem at all.
The only trouble I had was with the screws. In both cases they´d broke. And I realised the Helios and the Tair used the same screws.

Does someone know which measures those screws have and where to get them?

Heres a pic in which you can see which screws I mean.


Its these screws and also the ones which are more tiny (dont have a picture right now...)

Thank you all in advance]]>

Back to this topic always about the 1,5/5,8cm Sonnar s/n 1407059.
Altix dismounted it and made the scheme of the lens:


The different parts of the lens are mounted from the front towards the rear. Seeing the complexity (and the number of these lenses: certainly around 500), probably the work was made by Zeiss workers who had "found" spare parts...

Thanks, Altix.
