I am considering the purchase of a Kiev 60 camera. I am looking for third-party information, such as how reliable are they, significant or persistent problems, availability of parts and service, quality of lenses, et cetera. I would especially like to hear about such things as the loudness of the shutter, whether users can live with a 1/30-second speed for flash syncronization and how bright is the viewfinder. My 49-year old Rolleiflex TLR just bit the onion, so it's time for a change. I don't need a a magazine camera, and there is no way that I'm going to lay out the $$ for a Hasselblad.
