    I tried to go to the Kievcamera.net site and get this warning "Malicious Web Site Blocked". Does anyone have any experience with this camera shop?

    Bill, you will do the best if you ask that question at The Kiev Report (Russ.&Ukr. cameras)forum. There are many knowledgeable people there who are using Kievs and they are familiar with this shop. Some of them are members here too.

    Thanks. Kiev USA in CT is in business-talked to him on the phone yesterday. If I want a Kiev 60, I'll get one from there 'cause they've been rebuilt and upgraded and have a warranty. I wouldn't get a used one because they don't have the best reputation for reliability.

    There used to be a Mamya forum on the web that was loaded with horror stories about that shop in Atlanta, always heard good stuff about Ct.

    Still in business but does not handle disputes very well. I bought 2 cameras from them via ebay, one which was broken and when sent back was never replaced or refunded and another that was sent to Mexico... I live in Australia. I would avoid them and buy somewhere else.
