Kiev 's weak point, as you point out is their quality assurance!
With as many complaints from the LUG about Leica lenses that fall apart,
flaky dinglehoobies, and interior smudgies, I do shudder to think what might
happen. <BIG grin here!>
I do think that the KIEV USA company has gone a long way toward remediating
the situation; I am sure that market pressures on Kiev will eventually make
their operation better. I have seriously thought about a Kiev, especially
since Herbert Keppler's article in the July Pop Photography, but Old Thing
tells me I have more cameras than I can carry now, so I must wait!
This Ukraine outfit made/makes the Fed and Arsenal cameras too, don't they?
