|Thanks for very interesting reading!
I am interested in Kiev Cameras and
Just read about Jupiter-9 in LTM mount
when I have some early ones.
Some with 1.8 meter minimum focus
One of the lenses I have is from 1952,
with closed fours, but as I said with
the 1.8 meter minimum focus distance.
Content is a Zeiss lens package, with
serial number 2839783.
According to Fabrication Buck Photo
Optics, Carl Zeiss Jena (Hartmut Thiele)
as part of this Sonnar in a group of
1000 finished 1945.
But it is interesting enough to find
Zeiss in a Jupiter-9 from 1952 with a
Focusing Distance of 1.8 meters!|

|Greetings from Ukraine! thats great that
Soviet cameras and optics are known
worldwide! I have Zenit and Fed, I`ve
bought them recently. It`s like a magic!
I do not know, what was their history,
they are older than me, and I treat them
with great respect and love them!
your site is very useful and convenient,
|Very nice website. Useful information,
nicely collected and well organised. I
really enjoy reading it.|

|Amazing site!! I bought a red FED-2
camera and just found out it is a
Great website and awesome camera!!!
|These cameras are beautiful, I admire
your collection. In my country, soviet
cams are not readily available. I travel
around and collect them. You motivate me
to collect more! Haha!!|

|This site has been an invaluable tool,
for me to to identify my collection
properly. I started with Bronica's and
then was attracted to a Zorki 4K, after
the Zorki, I have started down the
slippery slope of mad eBay purchases (my
wife's words not mine) and have a fast
growing collection. I even have a Fake
Leica, which is almost certainly a
Zorki(1), I determined this from this
site alone. Thanks for all of your work
on this, I check it at least once a week
now, and will continue to do so.|

|I still use my Zenit EM on occasion
(still got a bit of B&W film to use up).
Bought new from Dixons in Huddersfield
UK around 1981 or 1982 with money from
my Saturday job. Only my Canon digital
SLR lasts as long!|
|Really a nice site. Rich of information
and images. I also collect and use
Soviet cameras, SLRs and rangefinders.|
