Minolta XD5 Chrome / Pink Alligator
Minolta XD5 film SLR, in excellent 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.
EXC. No dents or major cosmetic blemishes, just a few of micro-scratches throughout 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 "Pink Alligator" pattern.
- Minolta MD 50mm f/1.7 normal prime lens. Excellent condition, with scratch-free glass. Couple of small patches of fungus on the interior, which will have no effect on perfromance. Aperture is snappy, no oil on the blades. Focusing is smooth. The barrel shows average wear, no dents. Skylight filter and a generic front cap are included.
- FREE BONUS: Cosina 28-70mm f/4 zoom lens (clean and seems fully working but not tested). Vivitar 2600 power flash. Charges and fires properly (batteries not included). Genuine Minolta camera strap, factory manual for the flash, body cap and a set of fresh batteries.
