  1. I didn’t know the Zorki cameras so i looked around and i stick here what i found about

    A Brief History about that gear…

    Production of the “FED” version of these Leica copies was begun in 1934. The similar Zorki rangefinders were first produced in Krasnogorsk, a suburb of Moscow, at a factory named for the location, beginning in 1948. The factory, locally known as KMZ, the “Krasnogorsk Mekanicheski Zavod” (Krasnogorsk Mechanical Factory) has produced many Soviet cameras in addition to the Zorki, including the Zenit 35mm, the Zenit 80, the Horizont, the FT-2 and the Mir. The KMZ still produces cameras today.

    The name “FED” comes from the initials of Felix Edmundovich Dzerzhinsky, the founder of the Soviet secret police. The FED-1 (c.1934-55) was the earliest successful Leica II(D) copy, and the only one achieving any measure of success before WWII
