    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.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit

    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

    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
