    Nice photos.

    I sure loved my Kiev. Mine had a really nice RF patch, and the focus was just spot-on. I ended up selling it not because of any performance issues, but because the camera itself was just fussy. A couple of those teensy screws would work loose, I kept having to make new take-up spools with a Dremel tool because I'd lose them, etc.

    One of my big dreams is that I can afford a Zeiss Ikon which seems like the great-grandchild of the Contax III/Kneb IV.
