Notes: Went on another treasure hunt and added this to the mix for a very good price. The Zorki (spelled in Cyrillic) was Russia’s attempt at making a Leica clone. This particular model is the Zorki 4, using the M39 Leica Thread Mount lenses. The Summar 50mm f/2 collapsible lens wasn’t in the best of shape, but hey, I think it is from the late 1930’s and the camera body is from the 1950’s.
Looking forward to using the Leica lens on a Micro 4/3 camera, and hopefully the imperfections of the glass can add to the final image and not detract. Might even run a roll of black and white film through it. Even though it is a Leica clone, I can appreciate the old world craftsmanship, and the color and sheen of the metal when light hits it. If camera manufacturers could put modern day sensors into these old useless bodies, we might could put a stop to all this endless upgrading.
