Genuine or not? Jacques M.@oxle.com http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?whichpage=-1&TOPIC_ID=2737&REPLY_ID=15124 Collectors and Users Open Forum Fri, 19 Dec 2014 16:10:21 +0200 http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2737 Quote:
No real importance where the lens comes from: it is absolutely impossible to prove if a ZK without Zeiss numbers is a fake or not.

We know that KMZ received Zeiss parts (and complete lenses too) from Germany.
We suppose they used it regularly: complete lenses first, then spare parts. And of course, these German parts had to be completed by Russian ones.

But we don't know for sure when it occurred, nor for which lenses first, nor for which parts, nor for which mounts.

I think that a 1950 (or perhaps even 1949) LTM 4/13,5cm Zorki can be true without Zeiss number. But a 1950 1,5/5cm Jupiter certainly will be a fake without this Zeiss number. And for the ZK/Jupiter 12, all can be true until 1952, with or without Zeiss number from 1950... As for the ears, sure the Jup 3 and 8 should have them until 1950.

Certainly, all that is very complex. And when we buy such a lens, we must be prepared to think of a possible fake. And of the possibility of re sending it if it does not seem "square".

All that is only what I think, after having examined closely dozens of these lenses. But there is no rule: as I have already said, I own a Jupiter 3, dated of 1974 by KMZ, and with a Zeiss serial number on the back...[:)]

You are right Okynek: KOMZ and not KMZ. An O missing.
I doubt concerning a Fed making.

It just happens sometimes that consectutive S/N are available. At the moment I know about Zorki-1 #588508 and #588509 offered from different sellers for a long time now and still nobody is interested in them and there are other examples. For me this is not a reason to collect these consecutive S/N but I think it's interesting if you have consecutive S/N with a Zorki-3 and a 3M, or a Zorki-C and a 2C because their S/N-system is connected.]]>

Hi Lenny, about the 171571515654.
I think it is better not to interfere when an auction is open...
Of course, a Fed body with a Zorki cover is strange. And the Sonnar is not really convincing, even if the serial number is a good one.

Sorry Jacques, yes I should not interfere, it might have attracted more bidders, especially here when there was no "Fed" mentioned in the headline.]]>

Hello comrades!

I was informed recently, that LOMO factory has changed its plans to publish the 2nd part of my book, called "Epoch of LOMO. Cine Cameras and People" at the end of this year. The next deadline for book publishing is the 1st quarter of 2015, though a lot of doubts yet. Too much financial problems in Russia today ...

I don't want to modify anything on this camera. The curtains are just partially jammed, and it would be easy to restore them. But I prefer to keep it in its actual condition.

I can understand that and of course this Neuca is very very special, but isn't it tempting to see how this gem works.

When I get an old camera, first I check if the shutter works. Sometimes the gears are dry and instead to clean and lube it the previous owner only increased the tension to keep it working. I lower the tension then first to give the camera some rest and sometimes I keep it cocked for some days to give the opening curtain some rest too. I'm sure these old cameras are in good hands when we have them.]]>
