Week 135 - Zenit EM - Moscow Olympics edition

The London Olympics opened this week, and it seemed like a good excuse to bring out this relic from a former games 32 years ago. In 1980 the Olympics were held in Moscow, boycotted by the USA among others. The serial number shows that this camera was made in 1978, I don't know whether the Olympic Logo was added post-production, or if the Soviets were planning their special edition 2 years ahead of schedule.


  1. I think they just added the logos later. Neat little quirky cameras.

  2. My first SLR. Wanted the TTL but could only afford the EM secondhand. Great way to learn about photography but boy was it heavy!
