    I picked up a Kiev 4a off of craigslist a few weeks ago. No takeup spool so I improved with an film spindle. Worked well enough that I ordered a takeup spool from Fedka, as the spindle felt a bit unstable. The camera came 3 Kiev/Contax mount Jupiter 8s ...and I just purchased a J12 over on rangefinderforum yesterday.

    Here are a few shots from the first roll:

    I was originally considering a Helios-103 but with results like those, I don't think I can justify it.

    So you are the guy that grabbed the J-12

    (Really thinking that a J-12 would be a good complement to my Kiev 4AM still in transit...)

    My Zorki 4K

    Well, here is the Zorki 4K immediately after its rangefinder test.



    So far the 4K has passed inspection and I will know tomorrow after processing the first two rolls of film whether the transport, shutter, and rangefinder are good. Mine was made in 1975 and came with a 1984 Jupiter-8. Lens and camera are in quite excellent condition (thank you Fedka). Unfortunately, the Kiev 4AM that accompanied the Zorki was not in as good a shape and will be headed home for an exchange.

    Way to go, Brian. That looks like a sharp kit ...

    My most recent RF purchase actually was a trade: CLA'd SP1000 and Auto Rikenon 50/2 for a CLA'd FED-2 and I-26. Trade made with an APUG/RFF member.
    I think, finally, I have the FED-2 I have wanted for some time: a slick-handling little go anywhere RF.

    A Yashica Minister D. Light seals are shot but it's in excellent condition otherwise.

    Well my most interesting recent rangefinder purchase is the Rollei 35RF. This is sort of a luxury version of the Bessar R2 and branded by Rollei. It takes M mount lenses, although most of my lenses are thread mount (I use adapters). It is a wonderful camera: agile, well-made, nice viewfinders, and an accurate TTL meter. It has a collectible following too.

    I think you got a very good one evidenced by these nice results. I'm not a huge fan of FSU cameras, but the Kiev's are ones I think really offer tremendous value and are a lot of fun.
