Phil- I have a Moskva 5 that I want to sell, but you don't want it. Mine suffers from a floppy front standard. It's a common malady. Also, the viewfinder on the 5 may be the squintiest ever made. You might be happier with the flip-up viewfinder on the Moskva 4. They are finicky cameras and might not be the best choice for your first MF. If you are in the states, check out Fedka's site. He usually has a few Moskva's and has a good return policy.
