The lens is from a FED camera, the MIR would have had a Industar 60 or 26M for internal consumption and a Jupiter 8 for export, this one is intended for internal consumption as it has Cyrillic script name. See http://www.ebay.com/itm/MIR-Vintage-...item2ec5e1b9c6 as an example. The only difference between the MIR and Zorki 4 was the lack of slow speeds mechanism.
    I was interested in the MIR in the first place because I've read the Z4 slow-shutter mechanism is a possible failure point, so the MIR is supposedly more reliable than the Z4. I also love the how "Мир" looks in script—I don't know why. (;

    This Fotoua page is exactly what made me wonder what's going on with this camera. The style of the camera looks too old (lots of accents) for such a high serial number, the serial number is also higher than the highest reported serial number on the Fotoua page.

    I'm probably overthinking this. Should I pick this particular one up? It seems like a good deal for having been CLAed.

    Oy. Forget it. I'm going to order from Fedka.com. (;
