Description

Here we have a Zenit 3m Camera. The Russian Zenit 3m 35mm SLR was part of a long running series of Zenit cameras and was made in Russia by KMZ and produced between 1962-70.

This camera comes with a Industar-50 50mm lens. In mechanical working order and the lens is scratch, mould and dust free. The surface of the lens casing shows some marks on the bottom plate and the leatherette is a bit worn in one corner by the timer.
