This is the third Soviet camera I've ordered from Fedka and, as with the previous orders, I'm very pleased with both the camera and Yuri's customer service.

The Kiev-4a is an excellent camera, in beautiful condition, capable of smooth, precise focusing, with a bright, contrasty rangefinder and the other controls all placed on the camera body for ease of use. It's a fairly big, hefty camera for a 35mm and once one gets used to the "Contax hold" the real fun begins!

I ordered my Kiev-4a with a Helios-103 lens and a case. Yuri emailed me to say that with the Helios-103 lens attached to the body the camera case snout was a bit snug. The case would close if I didn't use a lens cap on the Helios. I had read a lot about the Helios lens online and I do like to have a case where possible so, after a few emails, Yuri came up with an excellent solution: he would include a Jupiter-8M lens free of charge!

I've used both the Helios-103 and the Jupiter-8M lenses and I have to say that while the Jupiter-8M is a great lens, the Helios-103 is simply fantastic. I was really amazed at how crisp and sharp the photos taken with the Helios are. Anyone who gets a Kiev-4a with a Helios-103 lens will not be disappointed!

Fedka and Yuri are simply the best.
