Anyone collect these?
I currently have the following:
Zenit 12, 11, and TTL: all very nice tough all metal SLR cameras. Helios 44 lenses are wonderfully clear and are well made
Smena Symbol: Glorious workers camera. Sadly hipsters have made the camera....hip. Simple design, little to fail.
Fed 5: Last descendant of the famous Fed line. Direct descendent of Leica II/III but with lens of total soviet origin, Industar 61. It was brand new when I got it. I have no clue how it was new considering the rarity of consumer goods in the late years of the USSR.
