    Finally after the summer pause we've updated our site. We wanted to make it more professional and usefull for our customers. The quality of our cameras and lenses, which are being sold only after cleaning, lubricating and adjusting (CLA), is also rising day by day as is the professionalism of our repairman. We have been in business for 5 years and we know what our customers want and we want to provide that service.

    Here is the small list of what we have now in stock:

    1. Zorki-1+box (EX++)
    2. Kiev-4+box (EX+)
    3. Leningrad+box (EX++)
    4. Mir+box (EX++)
    5. Jupiter-12 (contax-mount) EX++
    6. FT-2 (EX+)
    7. Fed-2+box(red) (EX+)
    8. Kiev-4AM (EX++)
    9. Kiev-2+ZK lens
    10. Zenit-19 (EX++)
    11. Zorki-3M (EX+)
    12. Lomo-135M (EX+)
    13. Jupiter-9 (leica-mount) (EX++)
    14. Moskwa-5+box (EX++)
    15. Fed-3+box (EX++)
    16. Pentacon Six TTL (EX++)
    17. Tair-33B (pentacon) (MINT-)
    18. Fed-Zorki (EX+)
    19. Stereo Attach. for Kiev/Contax
    20. Fed-3 (type a) EX++

    ... more interesting cameras and lenses.
    And much more will be available in next several days, because we continue upgrading.

    Does anyone read the terms of this website, if your selling, you need to post in the classified section, second in order to offer stuff for sale, you must be a subscriber, by posting in the incorrect section, your just circumventing the rules of the website! are we now going to go through a phase where people are not reading, or are they just trying to cheat????

    Dave,

    I'd give them a bit of slack, seeing he's from the Ukraine. English and the internet may not be the norm in terms of communicating or widespread use. I know since my GF is Ukrainian. 'Gently' nudging them in the right direction would be my approach. Just a suggestion. I don't believe, yet, they are trying to cheat the system.

    Regards, Art.

    Nothing has been offered for sale as far as I can see.

    He's merely listing things which can be bought in another place, without prices - which may be a circumvention of the rules, but is excusable for a non-English speaker. It's at least excusable ONCE.

    Ole,

    Why would it be excusable for a non-English speaker? is this website English speaking as a primary language? What is the difference between "available" and "For Sale" When someone comes to my house and asks if that is available, I always take it to mean, is that for sale...

    I take it as a drive by, Hey we updated our website, and this is what we have "available" I don't see any indication that the listing says "Not for Sale" does that mean if I visit them in the Ukraine that I have a place I can borrow things?

    This was pure and simple a drive by, trying to get people to come to their website to buy things.....

    Dave

    Check Fedka.com for some (price) comparisons. (I am not associated with them, but have had good luck with them).

    Hey, guys, I'm really asking an excuse.
    Just wanted to show you where you can find at least good photos of some rare cameras.
    Each store of some old equipment is the museum in some way. You don't need to buy anything, but it may be interesting for you to look through some old cameras.

    Once again, I'm sorry if this caused problems for you.

    PS: Don't be so angry! I'm not selling TVs, DVDs or Hair driers :smile:

    Nice to see an apology. Maybe you could become a sponsor?

    Anyhow, I have dealt with (though not bought from) this person before - he was honest enough to put me off a particular camera he had for sale, saying he did not feel its condition matched what I was looking for.
