Direct from the Ukraine, I've ordered a new toy...

This, my comrades, is the legendary FED 5, produced in the millions from 1977 to about 1994. The FED factory was founded in 1927 and began to produce copies of the famous German Leica camera in 1934. The FED 5 was the last of these. Despite being a product of Soviet Russia, it is a very fine instrument, although obviously not of the same quality as its German parent. Basically, it's way bloody smexy, and it's going to be perfect for the class I'm taking in the fall. Yay!

Oh my goodness. DO WANT. You lucky bastard, getting your mitts on one of these babies. *jealous*

Seriously, though, that is awesome. I hope it serves you well.
