    Sure the price is ridiculous, but I've never thought of it as "Art Deco" before! That's got to be worth something, right!?!

    It's rated 7/10 cosmetically, that's an extra 600 dollars' worth right there.

    That's funny, I was just thinking the exact same thing. Last night I was looking at Rolleiflexes on ebay and the prices on those have just gone through the roof. Most are going for triple what I paid for the two I have, and there are just as many selling way into the thousands. I knew I should have bought a few more of those a couple years ago because clearly there has been a resurgence in classic cameras......Damn hipsters and your fixed gear bikes, get off my lawn!

    They are great cameras. I have two nice examples and they take excellent pictures.

    The listed one is actually only worth close to one tenth of that price.
    One recently sold for US$340 and previous ones for approx $100-150. Its a funny market and it kind of depends on who is buying and who is selling at any given time.

    The prices for a lot of cameras have been slowly creeping up though, including the FSU rangefinders, for example.
    The production run of Zorki 1s was about 800,000, so they aren't _really_ so rare or valuable (as the typical Eastern European ebayer will have you believe).

    Also, I find it difficult to believe when someone lists three of the same camera and tries to tell you they're rare!
