ZORKI-3C soviet rangefinder with fast Jupiter-8 2/50 lens



One of the best looking Soviet rangefinders – design based on German Leica camera and soviet engineers did a good job at recreating elegance of LEICA.
M39 lens mount makes the camera compatible with Leica LTM lenses.

Zorki-3S was the first Zorki model equipped with the flash synch (hence the “S” designation). It was in production at the KMZ plant from 1955 to 1956 and is not easy to find now. When a self-timer was added to this model, it became a well-know Zorki-4K, one of most common Soviet rangefinder. *from fedka.com



Camera (s/n 5603603) is in very good condition!

Cosmetically very good, with a few signs of use/age(see detailed photos).

Full functionality!

Very smooth and nice to operate soviet rangefinder camera.



The lens is coated Jupiter-8, 50/2 – Zeiss Sonnar copy in LTM. Early version with a focusing lever.

Condition of the Jupiter-8(s/n 5600334) lens is very good – few micro scratches on front element, rear element is clean.

Might have few internal dust particles – nothing to affect quality of images.

Mechanically the lens is excellent – smooth focus, dry aperture.


Lovely camera in very good condition with only some signs of use/age, good functionality, after professional CLA.
