    got a nice deal on ebay, leningrad camera with manual, original box and case. man, whats the fuss with leica, the leningrad is great! :D
    I'm pretty impressed by that cam, it's kinda heavy, solid built (like a tank :D) and works pretty good (thanks to the Jupiter 8 lens)
    ...ahh and I got it from Moscow :)

    this is a pic of it, enjoy (I had to share it :D)

    Yes, a very solidly built camera. A copy of a German Contax with Leica thread mount and motorized film transport. What else could you want? It's a 'commie' Leica on steroids! :lol: :lol:

    The Jupiter is a good performer, as many Russian lenses are. They copied all the great camera and lens makers, especially Contax and Leica.

    Give it a run and post some pics soon. Meanwhile enjoy!

    Oooo, I tend not to like the look of old cameras. They all look a bit "samey" to me. But... oooh, that's perdy. Enjoy!
