    After spending days, having fun, I have disassembled and reassembled almost
    alll the camera. Finally my Zorki 4K has been almost repaired. Now there are
    only little problems with 1/1000 and 1/30 shutter speed. I knew that I
    could have had a new one, used, for less than 40Euro on eBay, but belive me,
    you can learn a lot turning screws in this ugly masterpiece. Well, may be I
    will go to buy a second body...
    Thanks to all friends have replied to my first post, making me able to find
    on the net important instructions*. Now I am curious to know how much
    differently designed is the original Leica from its clone. I do not have any
    Leica, and even if I had one, I would not have enough selfconfidence to open
    it. ;-)

  2. Once you have run a test roll through it, why not join us at
    www.rangefinderforum.com and post a few of your shots?
    Heehee. When I got my Zorki 4 I took it apart for a CLA, not because there
    was anything really wrong with it but more or less for the hell of it. I've
    yet to properly fix the slow shutter speeds (they're all about 1/2 stop too
    short).
