I don't believe Zeiss-Opton ever built its lenses for Nikon rangefinders. If someone knows something different on that front, let me know.
I know all the hubbub about the Ukranians and quality. I believe it got gradually worse but this Kiev IIa is a fine camera that's comparable in construction and operation to my Contax IIa ... it's just that my Contax is getting CLA'd at the moment.
I ran another roll through this afternoon, in daylight rather than indoors. Focusing was better but Walgreens messed up the neg scans so I'm rescanning myself. Will post when through.
