To be fair - there were a lot of cameras with that... um.... aesthetic released around that time.
But, yes: ew.

I'd reckon with Cosina Voigtlander halting production, there is a bit of a market, if a small one.
Yes but the problem is that Russian plastic appears to be low quality and the camera broke down several times, while old Zenit tanks with brass tops were and still are very reliable and oozes a certain "rough quality" aurea.

I have two (or better one, as one got damaged) Zenit 19 and I consider them the pinnacle of Zenits, it even has a 1/1000th shutter speed! (!!!).

Besides the plastic top and advance lever is a competent camera an I would like to see an all metal reissue of it.
