PT5010. Very few Vega-1 prototype cameras were released by KMZ in 1960-1963. It's interesting to mention, that Vega-1 version for SLR cameras is more common to find nowadays. Signally redesigned lens body in comparison with PT5005. Not discount the possibility of sample opposite beeing SLR lens, but so far known SLR versions have very different body finish indeed.
