''The VOOMP II Pioneer is one of the first Leica II copies made in the Soviet Union. It was made by the Union of Optico-Mechanical Companies (V.O.O.M.P) in Leningrad. There are several versions of this camera, with different engravings on the top. Less than 1,200 VOOMP cameras were made between 1933 and 1937. The FAG Geodesiya and FED were also working on the project to create and produce a Soviet Leica during this period, and eventually FED became the factory that ended up as the major producer, possibly for political reasons. The VOOMP cameras are all dated and numbered and they are a very rare and historic Soviet camera''. ''From SovietCams by Aidas Pikiotas [http://www.sovietcams.com/index.php?1113805920])''
