Kiev/Arsenal Universal Finder 28-135mm. Early "Reversed" Model:
Finder is in mint condition, very hard to find. Don't know how Yuri does it. Appears unused, optically clear, unblemished. Came with fitted bakelite case. Listed as "good" condition-an understatement.
Two important things to know about the Kiev finder:
1) Early version was designed specially for Kiev/Contax, interferes with Fed/Zorki/Leica shutter-speed dial.
2) Late version interferes with Kiev/Contax rewind knob, but fits Fed/Zorki/Leica.
Either version of Kiev/Arsenal finder is superior to Leica's. Instead of increasingly smaller keyholes like Leitz finder, Kiev finder shows clear, magnified images with neatly outlined image area. Like all Soviet Russian lenses, optics are superb. 5 stars!
