Legendary Russian camera company appears to have been on hiatus for the last few years, but the Russian brand is back according to a new announcement.

This week the brand announced they are working on a full-frame mirrorless camera, slated for a 2018 release. It's been more than 10 years since Zenit's last release following the Zenit KM Plus in 2005.

Zenit’s Director, Zverev Igor Sergeyev, has stated that they hope to create a camera that is “modernized, but [with] characteristic contours, ergonomics, camera lines [that] will be integrated into it.”

No details about specs, price or release date have been announced but Sergeyev has confirmed that it’ll launch in 2018.

Through most of the late 20th Century Zenit cameras enjoyed widespread use, being exported to 74 countries. We’re keen to see a Zenit in action once more.
