There are, however, some very high-quality lenses available for Kiev-88 cameras at very low prices. The most well-known is the Arsat 30mm f/3.5 fisheye lens, available for around $200, whose nearest rival bears a price tag closer to $6000.
The Kiev 88 originally used a screw thread but was later modified to take the Pentacon Six mount. This version is called the Kiev 88СМ. This version is also more reliable due to redesigned shutter .
Arax makes customized variants of the camera.
