Quite agree Zeniths are a clunky dated (even at the time ) novelty.
They are quaint in a USSR type of way, I own various Feds, Zorki, Zenith etc also Practica and Olympus, Pentax etc.The Zenith is so far behind the Practica in weight, build reliability feel etc. I got out my Practica after 10 years and it works like new, The Zenith needed its shutter retensioning.
They are popular beyond their capability, but at least they kept Technical and Optical in business.
