    These cameras are often sold at inflated prices compared to the better made German cameras they are based on.

    However if they are in excellent/mint condition and the seller is reputable then maybe your purchase is worthwhile.

    Before you buy anything typically the Moskva 2 sells for around £50 / 75 euros, and I'm sure if I checked out the other models I could buy all three for a lot less than 350 euros.

    I'm inclined to agree with Ian. If you're trying to create a collection, and they're in good order ... maybe. Otherwise it seems a high price to me.

    The 3 of them are in good condition and they still work. Are the series hard to find?
