    Finding the right Zorki 1...

    I have decided that I HAVE to get a Zorki. The 1 is the most appealing to me, but I know that there are many viariations of it as well. Anyone have a preference between the A, B, C, D or E? Go for a Industar-50 (3.5/50mm) or the collapsable Industar-22 (3.5/50mm)? I plan to use this as a day to day go to camera, and will be soing a bit of everything with it. I am fine with having to trim the film, and understand some of the quirks that are built into them.

    ***If anyone has a nice setup to let go of and has a need for a Nikkormat FT2, a Canon F1n, Ftbn or a Yashica TL Super maybe we can work something out...***

    Boy, have I got the camera for you. Not just one but two Zorki 4K's, ones for color film and the other for black and white. Both are in excellent condition and with two lenses. A 50mm and a 26mm, two yellow filters, one lens hood and a Gordy's strap, all in a nice Tenba black camera bag. I'm not interested in a trade unless you have some Bronica SQA stuff, but I'll sell the whole thing for $250.00

    That really sounds like a deal, but I am pretty dead set on a 1 as of right now... Beautiful cameras, but a little too newish for what I want to have. Thanks for the offer, though! If I decide to jump ship on the 1 I will let you know.

    Wow, you're really set on one of these, eh? I have a neat thing (though it's not for sale). It's a Zorki 1 but it was built as a fake Shanghai 58. So it's a Zorki 1 knockoff of a Shangahi 58 which is a Leica III knockoff. Ha! Really sharp 50/3.5 collapsible on it too. Good luck on your search.

    Just got back from our Christmas travels to find a package from jnanian. Awesome Zorki 4 with a Jupiter 8 lens. Better condition than he described it to be, well worth the price he put on it... I have a bulk spool of Kentmere 400 on the way from B&H, it should be here tomorrow. Perfectly timed!

    Are the slow speeds an issue on the Zorki 4.......I've been looking at one myself.

    I have a Zorki 4. Looks like new, Jupiter-8 too. It's been sitting idle for at least 16 years, probably more. It's not so much that it has problems with the slow speeds as it's replaced all its speeds with one, sloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooow. I look at its curtain and it gives me this big and long yawn, I get sleepy every time.

    I may work the shutter a bit if I ever get bored enough. It's too bad, it's a cute camera (no, it's not).
