James's Camera Collection: Fed 2

Fed 2
Camera type: 35mm viewfinder
Lens Mount: M39 (Leica screw thread)
Approx. street value: $25

My first (and probably only) Leica-copy which takes the honest-to-god Leica-thread 39mm screw-mount lenses. I have a couple other cameras which take 39mm screw mount, but the thread pitch is incompatible.

There's a surprising amount of stuff on the Fed line of cameras, among Russian stuff, it's very well regarded.

I haven't tried anything with it; probably never will. But it looks great on the shelf.
