My new toys are just arrived (and I already have CLAd the Zorki and filled with B&W film). Aren't they old beauties?

Also I like your photo, makes them look classy.

I always wanted that Pentacon model, or it's cousin (The Contax D). One day I will get one.

I got it for 24,50 euro (shipment included). A steal even if I'll have to pay 40-50 euro for CLA, inside it's completely new.

Pentacon is very cheap as usual here.

Is that lens on the Zorki, a copy of the famous collapsible Elmar used by Cartier-Bresson?

That's a really good photo of two classics... excellent advertising too, as I immediately started to salivate

Yep, just the name Zeiss on it and I would have paid for it about 100 euro. What I wasn't prepared to see was a brand new shutter cloth inside.

It looks identical, in fact. Those Soviets were really good copiers!

They look great !!! Like them both.

I would consider the Contax D/Pentacon FM the most beautiful M42 SLR (even than the Bessaflex or the Asahi Pentax cameras).

Congratulations .

They look to be in really good condition.

Cool !

I want one of those Contax models. They seemed like quality cameras, compared to many of the Pakticas that followed.

They can be found, but they seem to go for a premium here.
