I was going to mention that, too. :)

If you look at the shutter, it's really different. The company is calling it a "vertical slot closure." Not sure what that means.
Could it be the old Kiev 19 has a horizontally running cloth shutter inherited from the FED/Zorki line, and the shutter in the Elbaflex is a modern metal bladed (like the Copal) running vertically? That would be a big improvement on operations, but why limit it to the same old rangefinder speeds? Can't be because they are trying to hit a price point, seeing as the camera is way overpriced as is.

For the 4/3 people. Remember that you could also use the MF lenses on Nikon's years ago with a Kiev adapter.
If we all saw the world the same no one would need a camera.

Let me dig out my Kiev 20 I think it had that shutter but at 1000th. It was the top of the line but then deemed too expensive to produce so they went to the 19M.

After reading a camera review yesterday, the shutter speeds match the old Praktina FX. Tri-X was still rated at ASA 320 back then.
