GAF L-ES Black / Red pigskin
Seldom available for sale, especially this clean, black GAF L-ES film SLR, restored and finished in red leather. Robust metal-leaf electronic shutter up to 1/2000s, M42 screw mount suitable for Takumars, Chinons, soviet and other manual focus lenses.
Shutter, film transport and timer all work properly. Meter is responsive to light, but accuracy has not been verified with film. Brand new light seals and mirror guard were installed ($25 value).
Very good, no major dents or scratches, just minor brassing. Focusing screen and viewfinder are bright, with a few tiny specs of dust (will not affect shooting in any way). Original leatherette has been replaced with genuine Red pigskin leather - in combination with glossy black body the camera looks outstanding.
- Chinon Auto 50mm f2.0 prime lens in excellent condition. Glass is scratch-free, no fungus. Aperture is snappy and blades are free from oil. Focus is smooth. Barrel of the lens shows minor wear consistent with age and moderate use. Some small nicks on the front rim, filter threads are unaffected. Genuine Gaf front cap included.
- Vintage camera strap.
