Shutter, meter, film transport, timer all work properly. Brand new light seals and mirror guard installed.
Minor scuffs and scratches throughout consistent with normal use and the age of the camera. It appears that the previous owner attempted to glue the deteriorating original leatherette back to the body, which left traces of glue on some plastic surfaces. This has no effect on the function of the camera, only the appearance - see the photo of the bottom. We tried to do our best to clean off the glue, and with a brand new genuine black pigskin cover the camera now looks very good. Lettering on the dials is bright. Focusing screen and viewfinder are mostly clean, with just a few tiny specs of dust in the field of view (no effect on photo quality).
- Yashica ML 50mm f/1.9 lens - high quality multi-coated normal prime, made in Japan. The glass is clear and appears to have no visible scratches or fungus. Aperture is snappy and blades are free from oil. Focusing is smooth. The barrel of the lens is in excellent shape, with bright letterring and no dents. Comes with a new generic front cap.
- Calimar 2x teleconverter, with a dedicated case. Seems in a great shape, but not tested. Vintage camera strap.
