I bought this camera a couple of years ago but hadn’t used it because the original 50mm lens (Meyer Optik Görlitz) was well and truly gummed up, didn’t mind too much as it was from a charity and wasn’t expensive. So when my sister dropped in the Zenit 19 for me to look at I used the Bell & Howell 35-105mm macro zoom lens that came with it to test out the Praktica. I had some Kodacolor 200 film that came with another camera, I had no idea how old it was and judging by the results it was well past it’s best.
What A Relief
The camera weighs a ton with the zoom lens, but I enjoyed using it. The lens is very good, think it’s made by Tokina.
