I'd recommend the Zorki 3M - It has a much better viewfinder. Or a much
later FED or Zorki - not as nice looking but supposedly much more

Subject: [RRUG] which body for a good shooter: FED-2 or Zorki 3?
| ||Hi everyone,|
I am contemplating buying a russian rangefinder to try myself out in
this world without forking millions in a leica. I am basically looking
for a small meterless body, close to the leica III. I have singled out
the FED-2 and the Zorki 3.
My question is: which body would you say is the most comfortable for
shooting? i.e. rangefinder clarity, etc..
For example, I have tried an old FED-1 with a collapsible lens and
didn't like the lens because I found it hard to change the aperture
while the camera is close to eye level.
It seems I cannot find any in shops around sydney a FED-2 or Zorki 3
Thanks a lot! S.
