Almost all of the Auxiliary VF's are now out of production and have been so
for many, many years.  The KMZ plant in Russia, however, continues to
manufacture a clone of the Prewar Carl Zeiss Jena 436/70 turret finder with
provision for 28mm to 135mm.  The one produced for the Zorki is 'flipped'
to match the LTM optical axis;  there is another version for the
Kiev/Contax RF which is not 'flipped', but this is exceedinly rare.

The Zorki VF are optically superb.  They run around $100 used, a heck of a
buy in today's market.
