Very good. Minor scuffs and chrome pitting, mostly on the top cover, consistent with normal use and the age of the camera. Bright and clean lettering on the dials. Focusing screen and viewfinder are dust free and bright, just a couple of faint lines at the bottom from previous cleaning (no effect on photo quality). Minor corrosion inside battery cap (no effect on function). Original leatherette professionally replaced with genuine leather embossed in Red Snakeskin pattern.
- Yashica ML 42-75mm f/3.5-4.5 compact zoom lens, close to mint condition. Crystal clear glass, no visible scratches or fungus. Aperture is snappy and blades are free from oil. Focusing and zooming are smooth. The barrel of the lens is in excellent condition, just a small area of paint loss on front rim, no dents. Comes with a UV filter and new generic front cap.
- StarBlitz compact power flash unit. Works great with the camera (batteries not included). Vintage camera strap and a set of fresh batteries.
