KMZ to Revive Zenit Brand, Plans to Launch FF CSC Next Year

Zoltan Arva-Toth | Compact System Camera
thumbnail

Russia's Krasnogorsk Mechanical Works (KMZ) have announced their intention to revive the legendary Zenit brand by launching a full-frame compact system camera in 2018. These plans were revealed by Igor Sergeyev, the company's Deputy Director General for Civilian Production and Consumer Goods, in an interview on Radio 1. Apparently, the Russian company will manufacture the optical components of the system (and possibly the camera body), whereas the electronic parts will be sourced from abroad. Sergeyev talked about "a close cooperation project with one of the leading photographic equipment companies," without actually naming their business partner. The new camera will be a "modernised" incarnation of the Zenit brand, but will allegedly retain "the characteristic contours, ergonomics [and] camera lines" of the old Zenit SLRs. The device will be released in two colourways; "dark" (presumably black) and "light" (presumably silver). Sergeyev did not reveal the camera's technical specifications - apart from stating that it will be a full-frame mirrorless model - or the exact MSRP, but indicated that it will be "more expensive than a good smartphone."
