Minolta XD5 Chrome / Yellow Alligator
Minolta XD5 film SLR in beautiful, near-mint condition, with new light seals and two lenses. 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, in an arguably more robust package. 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. Meter accuracy appears spot-on, but was not verified with film. Brand new light seals and mirror guard installed.
MINT-. No dents or noticeable cosmetic blemishes. Bright and sharp lettering on the dials. Focusing screen and viewfinder are clear of dust. Original leatherette was professionally replaced with genuine pigskin leather embossed with Yellow Alligator pattern - this camera will bring a smile to your face every time you pick it up!
- Minolta MD Rokkor-X 45mm f/2 compact prime lens. EXC condition, clear, scratch-free glass, no fungus. Aperture is snappy, blades are oil-free. Focusing is smooth. The barrel shows minimal signs of use, no dents. Comes with a rare Minolta UV filter and both original front and rear caps.
