    My first roll using this cam. I bought it mostly because off the lenses but I decided to give it a try. Not very handy but I kinda like the result. Pictures are from a Stone-Age festival.

    Zeiss 135mm and Zeiss 50mm.
    Film Fuji ISO 200

    Almost every young photographer in Europe started either with a Zenith or a Pentacon/Praktica. Those cameras were primitive in mechanics, but the lenses had an almost unbelievable quality/price ratio.

    With no surprise at all they still take excellent pictures.

    Just shows that even a camera that most of us would clasify as from the stone age can turn out real high quality shots in the right hands
