I love mine! It goes everywhere with me. I found that after I got used to loading it, there really is not that much to it. It took 2 rolls to get the swing of loading worked out and now, nothin' to it! I have the collapsable Industar-22 and have never thought of another lens. The Zorki 1 feels great, is easy to use, and gets great looks from passers-by. I suppose it could be me, but I prefer to think it's the camera... At any rate, I highly suggest getting one. They really are a blast to use.
