    I have been looking to pick up a Zenit MF-1. Although most people who look at this thread probably already know what it is ... it is the incredibly small camera that was distributed to Russian intelligence agents. I have only been able to find one on www.lomography.com and they want 1000 dollars US for a new one. I was wondering if anyone knew where I could pick up one at a cheaper cost, new or old. Thanks for any help ahead of time.

    It's the Nikon/Robot knock off. Russians were well known to buy expensive photo gear and reverse engineer it to produce their own version. The MF-1 is one of these.

    Unless you watch E-bay constantly, I don't see a source for finding one outside of the one you posted. They are hard to find. Here is a sale on Ebay (of its brother though):

    Good luck and tell us when you find one.

    I had never seen that in any version before. Very cool little thing though. What film does it shoot.
