Zenit M42 TTL-metered SLR, made in USSR Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Zenit M42 TTL-metered SLR, made in USSR

Asking Price
$30 shipped USD

Item Location
Waldorf, MD (United States)

Item Description
Up for sale is a Zenit m42 camera. This was made in the USSR and has all the build quality you'd expect of a communist country.

All camera functions operate, viewfinder is clear, mirror is clean and I believe the meter will work if you replace the batteries, though I make no guarantees. The shutter works beautifully at all speeds. I can detect no mechanical or optical flaws in this camera.

Mounting it up to a Takumar or any other M42 lens, this camera should give reasonable results. It will certainly be fun hooked up to a Jupiter-8 or Helios m42 lens!

Camera includes leather case but no body cap.

I will ship USPS Parcel Post, or Priority if the price difference is negligible. Shipping in USA is free unless a significantly more expensive service is requested, outside USA I will pay the first $7 of the shipping costs.

Contact me with any questions!

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?

Are you selling or trading this item?

I've used one of these, and they are quite nice. My friend uses his with his Tair and other Russian lenses.
