Zenit brand is back - toni-a - 12-16-2019
It's basically a Leica with Zenit name on it, with some minor design and software tweaks. Same price range.
Most interesting is the 35mmf1.0 lens...
With only 500 units for sale at Leica prices it is more a collection item than anything else
Wish Yashica did the same rather than humiliating and actually killing a once respected brand name

Yes it would be a titanic task to resurrect the Yashica brand now, given they scammed the public with their "Christmas cracker" POS camera !!
My first SLR the Zenith 3M (39mm Leica thread inc. lens 50mm F3.5 industar) £13.19 shillings and 6d ....... about 15 euros !!
Heck there seem to be quite a price hike on the new model !!
