A pleasant vintage surprise…
…that is what happened yesterday once back home from work: a friend of mine (thanks Gwen), just gifted me an old Russian 35mm SLR camera, the Zenit-E.
Hopefully, in my circle of friends is well known how much i love old cameras, i own more than 70 (see list here) and whenever i buy or receive a new one i’m excited like a kid who receive a present form Santa Claus!!!
The camera is also equipped with the Industar 50-2 f3.5, a very compact and small lens, M42 mount, based on the Carl Zeiss Tessar design. The camera needs a bit of cleaning, but overall is in very good conditions, i will then try to mount this small lens on the Canon 5D III and play with it.
