    Kiev 4 with J8 Lens - 1976 Model - Nice!

    I am selling a Kiev 4 from 1974 (SN# 7425516). Included is a Jupiter 8 lens.

    The cosmetic condition is good with no evidence of abuse. The shutter fires correctly at all speeds and the shutter curtains look good. The rangefinder patch is aligned and accurate and has acceptable visibility. The meter appears to be non-functional (as is typical) and the self timer does not seem to work (it winds down, but does not fire the shutter).

    The lens has basically clean, clear glass with no haze, fungus or other "show-stoppers". The iris blades are clean and the click stops very positive. There are some fine hairline circular cleaning scratches on the front element, but not nearly enough to impact use.

    A take-up spool is included.

    All-in-all this is a good user grade Kiev and it should be a fine picture taker. The Kiev 4 is a good first system-rangerfinder if you are interested in trying this format and it won't break your bank. Many good compatible lenses and accessories are available. I think I've set a reasonable price.

    Price: $50 plus shipping. I ship to most countries

    You can return it for a refund (within a reasonable time period) if you find a problem like that

    I can vouch for David......buying from him is a NO RISK situation. I have purchased many items from him and the items were all better than described.

    Ian,

    According to the Camerpedia (http://www.camerapedia.org/wiki/Kiev_4) this is a Kiev 4. Other sources such as the original manuals found here:

    http://www.butkus.org/chinon/russian...a-a-splash.htm

    tend to back this up. (I've owned them all at one time or other)

    cheers, David
