At least 5 types are known to exist:



 

 

 
  

PK7605. Seems to be an earliest production version of the particular camera. Body painted in pale red colour (domestic origin). "Flash Ready" indicator's cover is made from white transparent plastic (see picture below). An earliest so far known camera has s/n #8700028 (SovietCams).

PK7607. Camera identical to PK7605, but totally black already. Under silkscreened name „Zenit 35F“ in Roman letters. Very first productional samples have "Flash Ready" indicator's cover made from white transparent plastic. All other cameras come with yellow cover already.

The cover of manual guide.

PK7610. Camera identical to PK7607, but the nameplate is a sticker now and can be removed easely (it's easy now to have so called "No Name" version of Zenit-35F camera).
