So, these three beauties are just now for sale here. On sunday I am hopefully the lucky new owner

The Zenits I know somehow: rare but not impossible. But the Zorki: how much rarer than the normal one?

I would call the Zorkii rare but not terribly rare. I have several.

I would consider the Zorki 4k WWII Anniversary a bit hard to find. All else have been quite easily attained.

With all due respect, I find any Anniversary camera that has a glued on plastic emblem or sticker to be no big deal.

Juhani,

I would say Zorki-4 is quite common, Zenit-3M is less common and Zenit-122 "50 years of Victory" is very veeeeeeeeeeery uncommon ...

I know the Popeda Z122 as I regret not buying one for sale here years ago...
It was broken, but I had the parts to fix it but thought that 30e (iirc) was too much...
Thank you all!

This camera IMHO is ultra rare! I newer sow it alive!
AFAIK most delegates of 25-th congress of Communist Party got Zenit-E with same label.
I wonder who got Zorki? And why? Was they special congress members? Super delegates? High ranking officials? Members of secret committee?
Or other way around, low ranked helpers and staff?
Does anybody know?

122 Popeda for 26 euros and 3M for 26 euros both now coming, also Zorki for 32 euros. Locally, so postage 10e for all together

Oh, and a new-in-box latin Zorki-10 for 21e, Kiev-10/15 Mir-20mm lens for 23e, and Kiev-III '53 for 26e all from this same seler-collector. Same as the Elikon-2, and as you can see there is not enough buyers here for these specialities!

Zorki: Matching 1967 body and lens, small fade in texts but far from being "used"


http://www.ussrphoto.com/UserContent/Zorki4_50y.JPG

3M: Matching 1967 body and lens, exc condition. See the glossy black around leatherette, no retouching done!

Zenit-122 "Popeda 50y" from 1995: like new, serial #95080077 and matching lens


http://www.ussrphoto.com/UserContent/Z122_Popeda.JPG

And the other goodies in the box (Kiev-III in the serial number topic)

New boxed Zorki-10 with latin text and the export-quality-sign from 1977:


http://www.ussrphoto.com/UserContent/Zorki10_NIB_Latin.JPG

Mir-20 for Kiev-10/15, now I know why the filters are always missing. There was no case, only this styrox box... Serial 830257 so not a usual lens.

Flash bouncing from the sofa back did make a pinkish tone to th ewhite lettering, sorry! I was too lazy as I had also half a dozen Chinese cameras to shoot
And I really regret that I did not buy the first one (maybe five years ago?). It was around 40 euros and not working, but I did have all the parts to fix it
