Well. Now, it's the known 1,8/40mm prototype for sale:
http://www.ebay.fr/itm/RAREST-LENS-for-FED-88-TTL-prototype-Factory-mining-HELIOS-113-1-8-40-0000001-/161438129514?pt=Camera_Lenses&hash=item2596765d6a

Th s/n 1, and perhaps the only ever made...
It could be perfect on a Leica CL/Minolta CLE with its M mount.
So, if all that is genuine, it would mean that this Fed 88 had a M mount...

Such a lens is already on DVD: http://www.dvdtechcameras.com/collect/fed/fed.htm with the date 1980.

Epoch of LOMO. Cameras and People by Aidas Pikiota AidasCams@oxle.com http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?whichpage=-1&TOPIC_ID=2607&REPLY_ID=14733 Collectors and Users Open Forum Wed, 01 Oct 2014 02:17:09 +0200 http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2607 Quote:
Thanks guys! [:)]

yea, the new book is going to be published in the same quantities - 500 copies. As I have told you before, these two books are non-commercial project indeed. I'm not getting any financial support from LOMO, though a lot of my personal funds were spent to achieve all this information and to complete the project. According to my initial plan, I've had to publish two books about LOMO photographic/cine production and to create a new bilingual website www.lomocams.com with all my researches placed inside. This website should compensate the limited accessability in obtaining the printed book. But ... the new website is asking for additional funds and a lot of time to complete it. That's why I'm pressing on my breaks at the moment [:)] and will probably be looking for sponsors to complete and maintain this interesting project.
Beside this, I have to decide what to do with my existing website SovietCams, since a lot of information concerning LOMO (and not only this zavod) has become inaccurate recently and needs to be replaced or changed.


Best regards,
Aidas

Hi Luiz,
what do you mean with "Smena first generation"? Shutter and lens are similar to Smena and other SL cameras, but not "exactly reminiscent". There were many such cameras with similar shutter-system at that time. The body is also "similar" to Rollei 35, as well as similar to the first FED-Micron.

I have removed the lens plate
I supposed it has been mounted with 1/4 more turn after servicing.
But it is in good position.....

It is in the right position on your camera, unless the lens is not completely screwed.[?]
But the lensplate seems a Fed one, with its engraved line. On a Fed, the line is at 9. On your camera, it is at 12. Hence the possibility it has been turned to support correctly the KMZ lens.

Amitiés. Jacques.
PS: I had not seen your question in the good thread. Bravo pour tes acquisitions!]]>

The Faker who changed this Zorki made it easy for serious collectors.
1. It all starts with the "N" infront of the serial number and not "No" which KMZ used at that time on Zorki-4 cams from the year 1961.
2. The KMZ sign is higher and not as wide as on a Zorki-4 from 1961, the arrow is different too. This is not the real KMZ sign.
3. The date 12.04.61 and the serial number seems to be in the same style, but for a Zorki-4 from 1961 KMZ used a different style for engravings. 0, 1, 2, 4 and 6 are all different.

FED no name? Jacques M.@oxle.com http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?whichpage=-1&TOPIC_ID=2619&REPLY_ID=14681 Collectors and Users Open Forum Tue, 23 Sep 2014 16:26:01 +0200 http://USSRPhoto.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2619 Quote:

With that release button and the vulcanite, it should be a late 1b, in fact from the last series (50/54xxx).

I always have two "no name" Feds, both 1d. I think that they were prepared for a Leica conversion, and not converted. Like yours.

As Alexander says, there was no "no name" Fed at all.

Difficult to say. Perhaps a very small batch of 1d or 1e in the forties.
But more certainly a camera "created" in the eighties for collectors.
I have a Fed Sport from a Fed S with the 1/1000th and a 2/50mm lens, perfectly working. Not bad...
