    This is the cleanest Zenit I have ever seen. Even the case looks like it's never been used.

    The camera is basically new. I really doubt that it's ever had a roll put through it. I was going to, but knowing my luck, somebody would run into me and cause issues. So...I'm letting somebody else put it on their shelf and admire the raw unspoiled beauty that is a Zenit ET. Meter even seems accurate enough to trust. Includes camera body, lens, lens cap, case (both halves) for the camera and if you don't have any film, I can throw in a couple rolls to get you started.

    The lens is clean inside and out, and is a preset type but very late production Helios re-labeled to whatever is printed on the name plate (I have no idea how to pronounce it). Doubtlessly a Helios, which have been invariably sharp and great.

    Close ups were just to show how un-flawed it is. Light dust in the lens, no fungus. Glass is unmarred. Light dust in the viewfinder, no issues. Mirror box is flawless and shutter sounds accurate like my Spotmatic which is good enough for slide film.


    Ninja edit: Trade for 120 slide or b&w film, or cash.

    Never mind, I see this is in the For Trade section, the FS in the subject line had me confused...

    The lens says "Helios" in Cyrillic and was made at MMZ in Minsk during 1989.

    Man, makes me wish I had kept some of my tax return. I don't have much to offer in exchange.
