Minolta XD5 Chrome / Black Lizard
Minolta XD5 film SLR, in near-mint condition - two lens bundle. Co-developed with Leica, XD series cameras were revolutionary at the time and is still widely considered to among the best film cameras Minolta ever produced. They were the first Minolta SLRs to feature automated shutter-priority mode. "Little brother" to the flagship XD11, XD5 is missing just a couple of convenience features of this thought-after camera, at significant savings. Both models share design elements with Leica R4 and are an excellent choice for a student or advanced film shooter.
Shutter, meter, self-timer and film transport work properly. Brand new light seals installed.
MINT-. No cosmetic blemishes, just a couple of micro-scratches on the bottom from normal use. Bright and sharp lettering on the dials. Focusing screen and viewfinder are dust-free. Original leatherette was professionally replaced with a new genuine leather embossed in "Black Lizard" pattern.
