    I owned one Kiev 88... for about half a year or 15 rolls of film. I heard of people calling them indestructable russian tanks, but I guess, I got a bad one. A drink to the quality control department, if something like that existed. It was the cheapest entry into medium format SLR photography but also the fastest exit from it. If I saved the money back then, I could buy a nice Mamiya or Bronica set about now...

    Still sad, another cameramaker dies, especially one that made such nice lenses for reasonable prices... no more endless supply of cheap 30mm fisheyes in P-Six mount.

    It might be built like a Russian tank. When going up against a US or Israeli tank over the past few decades, the Russian tanks were not very successful or reliable.
