    Zorki, which one to choose ?

    Hi folks !
    Suppose you've to choose between a Zorki-3 and a Zorki-3M. Both same price, with same Industar lens, and same condition.
    Which one would you pick up ? And for what reason ?
    Thanks for your help !

    To collect: the 3, because it looks far nicer.

    To use: the 3M, because it has a much more reliable slow-speed escapement. The escapement in the 3 turned out to be unreliable so the design was changed and the 3M was created.

    The 3 really is a lot prettier, though.

    Form or function?

    (I say get a Zorki 3 for show and a Zorki 3C or 4 to use...)

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?
