Where russian cameras came from?

First step in building the Russian Camera industry was made in the mid 30's, at the thick of the Stalin's purges. He have ordered to make a copy of the Leica II that met all of the quality standards of the original Leica. It was called FED (after Felix Dzerzinsky) and another copy was called Zorki. To the end of the WWII their issuance was several times more than Leica itself have produced ever. During the world war Soviet engineers have designed their own cameras and lenses. Them was given the name "Zenit" and they were produced at the largest camera factory in Krasnogorsk. These specially designed cameras were constructed strictly for the Government needs. Many researchers have prooved their superiority to German and Japan analogs.

Featuring a perfect MC Tair lenses with M42x1 Pentax mount were made to meet the strongest space and defence military standarts. Their sophisticated multi-layer achromatic coating assures enhanced light transmission, maximum elimination of ghost and flare, and optimal color rendering. They were manufactured and assembled by hand at one of the best military optical factories in Russia. A real optician was setting and testing optics before they were passed on to a quality control. The quality of the photos taken by this set is outstanding and will leave you astonished by their definition, luminance, and color fidelity.
