Especially to Zoom please:

Just recieved my KM+ from UK, and it is marked "Date 1104" which should mean October 2004? Serial is 04001073.
In KMZ-website I found:
"In the summer of 2004 name series Zenith- KM with the corrected construction for the differentiation from several " [podmochennoy]" for the reputations of the previous parties it was decided to replace by: "ZENIT-KM-plus". Cameras with this marking were for the first time represented by autumn on the exhibition of Fotokina-2004. In 2005 release by the Krasnogorsk plant of specular cameras, and in particular - Zenith-KM-Plus, was ended according to the Council resolution of the directors of enterprise dated November 24, 2004."

So is it true that KM+ was only made under September-October 2004 and this is one of the last ones?
Last production year for KM was 2003 if I am correct, and KM+ are from those 15097 cameras?

Yes, the one from UK, and hardly used at all. Been hunting for one a longer time now, to complete Zenitology as I already have the first prod type of "numberless" 1954 camera. Of course Alain has a pre-series 1952 but I can only dream of one...

Hello Juhani

If you like to buy a new one you can do it here:

http://www.rugift.com/photocameras/zenit-camera-km-plus.htm

But you need to be patience, a delivery time of two month or so is possible.

Best wishes - Guido

Ru gift is pretty good, I bought a couple of lenses from them but they are very slow, they also have an ebay shop with cheaper prices and their delivery was much quicker for some reason, just over a week to the UK ,but not as many items for sale
