I'm looking to get a new 35mm camera and I'm a bit torn. One side of me wants to get something hipster-ish like a Zenit, which are very cheap in my country (eastern Europe) and another side of me wants to get something Western like Canon, Olympus, Pentax, you name it.
I know that the Western brands are pretty much objectively better in terms of quality, but the Soviet shit attracts me a lot.
Can anyone relate? I'm not sure to what extent the aesthetics/history of a camera weigh up against quality, system availability/adaptability etc.. My heart tells me to get something Soviet but it feels a bit weird.
