Since there's some rangefinder love here there's some Zorki p0rn



Apologies for the lousy digital picture.

And a very well posed shot it is, lends Canon a bit of class
Thanks...The pic doesn't do that camera justice. It is a mint example and the lens are all flawless. I picked it up pretty cheap so I can flip it for more pentax goodies. It's rock solid with a great feel to it but has the nastiest sounding shutter I've ever heard. It's just so...cheap sounding. I hate it.

I have wondered if there is some corrective lens that could be installed in a body that would allow a 35mm PK lens to cover a 6x9 negative and still get inf focus. I know that there would be light and sharpness loss, but wonder if that would be worth it by having such a wide variety of lens choices. Just thinking.
an adapter with a negative diopter would increase the registration distance and image size.

If it's a squealy 'ker-CHOO!' sound that's the flywheel squeaking from dried lube. The link posted above which describes taking off the top cover is different from the method I've used.

Canon A-series DIY Repair / Shutter Squeak etc.

Basically take off the bottom cover, make sure the shutter is cocked and snake a spray nozzle stick which can be flattened to get it down to the required depth in the position shown in the above webpage. Just a little dab'll do ya and it may take a second or third, remember just a little bit and working the shutter a few clicks until the squeal goes away. They supposedly work for a long time before the shutter seizes open and when it does that, you send it to one of the Canon wizards like Joe Careta and get it fixed. And new light seals etc...

Thanks...I really have no intention of keeping it though as I bought it for the sole purpose turning a few bucks to help buy some glass for my Pentys. I'll leave everything to the new canon loving owner to sort out. (but yeah...that's what it sounds like..."shivers")

Love the Mxs. Notice the self timer on one is stuck(?). If I see that on eBay pictures, I move on as I assume there is a problem.

Not stuck. Moving no problems. I noticed it myself when I look at the photos. It freed up after turning it counter clockwise a tad then proceeded to actuate the shutter. It must have been in that position for 30 years though

I was tempted to put it on ebay to see what sort of interest there would be. I am not sure I would want to part with it though - a collectors piece no doubt.

That is the ticket I am looking for, if a body were made, with that negative diopter lens installed within the body, that incorporated a PK mount for 35mm lenses Then any pentax lens with an "A" ring should work.
Yes, there would be a slight light loss and sharpness loss, but the advantage of having the pentax lens selection would be worth it to me in a MF 6x9 body.

Looks great! I would have kept the MX if I were in your shoes.
