Question - Pentacon Six? Anyone Familiar?


Germany is the "wurst"

Hi there,

been a while since I've posted here, but thought it was worth a shot.

I'm looking to replace my Kiev-60 with a Pentacon-Six. Any chance anyone would be willing to help me look at various bodies for sale and give me some tips on what to look for?

Hello stranger! - sadly can't help on this one - it's a camera that's been on my wish list for a long time - but not taken the jump yet!

Tons of bodies on ebay, just don't know what to look for.

The Kiev is fun, but shittily made. The light sensors went out ages ago, and even my vintage camera repair guy despaired after trying to replace them with some old Pentax sensors (apparently each prism is individually matched to each body). So I just dumped a WLR on it, with predictable results.

Time for true fascist build quality, as glorious Soviet people's copy^H^H^H^Hinspired further development just isn't cutting it.
