    Having a Leningrad range finder sitting on my desk - but no idea how to adjust the range finder which is quite a bit of, a real distance of 8 yards is infinity on the range finder. Otherwise the camera seems to be fine...just 45-46 years old.

    So far no success, took it to the mechanic, but no luck! So started learning Russian ...

    doing a "Google" on "adjusting rangefinders" will come up with a number of hits.

    That's right but so far nothing for Leningrads and plenty for Zorki/Fed etc. Compared to Zorki/Fed Leningrads are quite rare. :sad:
