Fujica ST801 Chrome
Arguably one of the best M42-mount film SLRs and most popular and highly rated cameras in Fujica ST series. Revolutionary at the time, ST801 features LED meter display in the viewfinder and a full range of mechanical shutter speeds. This camera will work wonderfully with Takumars and other high-performing M-42 (Pentax) screw-mount manual focus lenses. Fujica ST series are well known for robust operation and a very "dark" (well light-proofed) mirror box, which helps with contrast. Full user manual can be found at Butkus.org.
Shutter, meter, film transport and self-timer work properly (accuracy of the meter has not been verified with film). Brand new light seals and mirror guard were installed ($25 value).
EXC++. No major blemishes or dents, very minor scratches from normal use. Focusing screen and viewfinder are clear of dust. Original leatherette is in excellent shape.
- EBC Fujinon 55mm f/1.8 prime lens. EXC++ condition, scratch-free glass, no fungus. Aperture is dry and snappy. Focus is smooth. Barrel of the lens shows minimal wear. The lens comes with Hoya Skylight filter and Fujica front cap. High quality prime lens, known for outstanding bubble bokeh.
