This is a very capable user and a great collectible. Back in the late 50’s and through the 70’s, the Moskva-5 was an expensive high class camera used mostly by the  professional photographers. You could often see a photographer with a tripod mounted Moskva-5 at many tourist attractions. It was mostly used for group portraits, when a high magnification of the negative was needed .
