There are different versions of J-12 with slightly different shape of the rear element and with varying levels of compatibility. But even if it fits physically you will lose metering which kinda negates the point of having a Bessa.]]>

Unfortunately, judging from the open published materials, they do not have accurate information about everything that is connected with the USSR.

(For me, if a "published" information is not free -- is like the information is not published at all.)]]>
Early Kiev III's on Ebay SteveA@oxle.com http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3149 Collectors and Users Open Forum Fri, 13 Jan 2017 05:01:39 +0200 http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3149 The majority seem to have 'A' serial numbers, there are two 1955 cameras, one (555422)has the 'A' whilst the other (557133) has the 'Made in USSR' type engraving. All the later 55nnnn's seem to have the 'Made in USSR' engravings whilst those prior to 557133 have an 'A'. Understand this is but a small sample and it is dangerous to draw conclusions but would be interesting to see if some pattern on the use of 'b', 'A' and 'Made in USSR' can be established from known correct serial numbers?

Cheers, Steve]]>
