second hand Pentax in Bulgaria

Hi.
I am visiting Sofia in Bulgaria next week on a buisness trip. Any one from the Forum have any tips on used cameras there? Pentax or m42 stuff.

Thanks!

You're more likely to pick up Soviet stuff than Pentax. I'm afraid I don't know Sofia, but personally I'd be on the look out for lenses like the Jupiter-9. If you have local contacts I'd get them to do the haggling as the price will double otherwise.

Good idea !

I was in London last week, checked the net for the same reason but soon got lost with contradicting threads, messages, etc. I had little time, so I dropped it.

Important to create something that can stay up to date.

Bonjour,

I'd say be on the lookout for HELIOS lenses, most by KMZ ... I have a 44M (55mm/f2) and I just picked up a 44-2 preset yesterday at a thrift shop for pennies!

Checkout the "Soviet lenses" section here ... Russian and Zenitar Lenses for Pentax: Prime Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database

Also, be on the look out for some Carl Zeiss Jena ("CZJ") lenses, too.

Good luck ... et bonne chase! Salut, John le Frog
