I have 6 FED's acquired in a fruitless attempt to find one that is reliable. If you are serious about photography get a Bessa R body. I once saw an ad for an Industar lens "with a heavy, bulky lens cap" (in other words a FED body). This pretty much sums up my opinion of soviet camera bodies. Now the lenses can be quite good optically but quality standards for the barrels is fair. The 55mm f2.8 Industar 61-L/D is probably the best of the soviet litter and gets good reviews. The L indicates that it has a lanthanum glass element.
