I bought all my FSU cameras & lenses from a camera tech in Kiev, who became an ebay seller when the selling got good. Everything was serviced by him, his word is his bond, and so far, no lemons. Watching his stock over the last several years, I think the Ukraine is running out of the better stuff to sell to the West.
