    Awesome. This thread is just what I was looking for, having been researching Kievs for the past few months. I've got a guitar or two I need to sell, then I think it's a Kiev 88 CM MLU for me.

    I once owned a Salyut-C from Sam Sherman. It had the metal shutter. It also had a small pinhole in the shutter (which Sam warned me about before I bought it). I too loved to play with it, cocking it and firing the shutter to hear the clockwork sounds of the mechanism...until the shutter ripped.

    Ah well, one quick trip to NY for repair (and a few calls starting with "Hello, this is Eddie from Camera shop") and it was great. I wasn't really using it, so I passed it off to my brother.

    You will have some experiences with Kiev. I had one for a while, and did not like the mirror bounce, so I got a hartblei, which is a Kiev with a detail job, has mirror lockup and some other niceties. It is easier to use, and will take Hasselblad backs. They have a web site.
