Hello! I came across an interesting website while searching for Lubitel(!) for a birthday present for a friend of mine who used to have one, but thats a story f ull of foriegn intrigue, sultry Ukranian women and the KGB...but I digress! sov ietcamera.com has for sale $69.95 large format(so they say)Fotokors with a GOMZ f4.5/135mm lens. Intrigueing! Anyone out there ever plays with one of these? Just curious.
