I take a great deal of interest in the Pentasix 66, a Kiev 60 improving of Richard Wiese's assembly shop in Hamburg (Germany).
Who is able to confirm me the reliability or the unreliability of this equipment?
Thank you.

I have not read any review of Richard Wiese’s Shop in Hamburg about his reworking of Kiev cameras

About 4 years ago read a few reviews for US magazines (Shutterbug and Popular Photography, etc) that recommend KievUSA
http://www.kievusa.com

The magazines did not recommend any European shops

All the reviews clearly stated that the reliability for the factory before any reworking /upgrading is very poor. And after rework fair to good.

I would not buy a Kiev camera that has not been reworked/upgrading.
And get a good guarantee
