Hi,

I saw an image of a J-3 with a much longer lens barrel. Has anyone seen such a lens before? It is also rangefinder coupled, but it must have a very different optical design.



Cheers,

Zhang

Vey strange Zhang.... Very strange.. But a J-3 is always a J-3 I suppose it differs only in the mechanical construction. Pehaps a trial type made by BelOMO in the 1957s...?

Dear Zoom
OK ZOMZ but....
Did not the original BelOMO Snachok also be a Skleika?

No. According that page (and an optical technology ;) -- a single lens.

Hi, Luiz, You are right, a J-3 is a J-3.But this is a rare J-3. I think I have seen 4 factories that made J-3s. I wonder which of them made the best quality ones?

This J-3 "Odd ball" seems to be made for Zorki cameras There is although a super rare one made in 1949 for the "Original GOI Leningrad" with metal rotary focal plane shutter--- the same shutter later used in Kiev 10 and 15 cameras.
Acording to my observations and researchs, KMZ did produce "ZK 1.5" in 1947 ... J-3 in 1950.. but soon left production to "Sergei Pozad"- the KOMZ. I have never seen a J-3 with KMZ logo built after 1951.
Asking to Zang -Which is the manufacturing year of this J-8?
And now the help of Zoom.

Hi Bill,

It is a LTM mount, and s/n 6107978. It was sold before I had a chance.

Cheers,

Zhang

Hi,Luiz,

I just saw a 1955 KMZ J-3 for sale, so these were made longer than we thought.
