The Zorki-35M full-frame 35mm coupled rangefinder camera was a project undertaken by KMZ designer N. Marienkov during the late 1960's (the "M" is his signature ... he also designed the Zorki 3M and the Zenit 3M)

Zorki 35M

The Zorki-35M full-frame 35mm film coupled rangefinder camera was a project undertaken by KMZ designer Nikolay Mikhaylovich Marenkov during the late 1960's (the "M" is his signature ... he also designed the Zorki 3M and the Zenit 3M).

It was based on the body of the Zenit E and some of the advanced design features of the Zenit D Automat, but as a rangefinder camera.

The Zorki-35M was to feature luminous frames in the viewfinder for 50mm and 85mm lenses, with the entire field of the viewfinder corresponding to that of a 35mm lens. Other advances included automatic parallax compensation, speeds from 1 to 1/1000 sec. and a moderne body design. The mirrored frontplate is similar to the Foton and Zenit-D Automat.

It was likely an attempt to make an updated alternative for the then aging Zorki 4. At least three hand-built prototypes of this camera are known to exist and the KMZ archives list it as a "project". It was never produced in series.
