    I have a couple of 6C's that I've had a lot of fun playing with, but considering the rapidly falling cost of more reliable cameras like the Bronica SQ-A, you should take a look around before settling on the Kiev.

    Just remember that the vodka flowed freely in the QC department. I have an 80 that I am super happy with. I have gotten lucky and all of my lenses are very very good. But, I have heard stories.

    I agree with those who say to look for a reliable camera and get adapters for the body. Bodies, of other systems, are falling in price, the price of the glass is still MUCH MUCH higher than the kiev lenses.

    Having owned a Kiev 60, I'd say don't bother with it. You can get a Bronica SQ-A kit for around $200 which is a much better system. Or if you're looking for something more "off the beaten path" look into a koni Omega setup. Really, the Kiev 60's are almost like disposable MF SLRs. The build quality is bad and the glass is "meh".
