Yashica FXD Quartz
Yashica FXD SE Quartz Chrome / Camo
Beautiful set based on Yashica FX-D Quartz. This little camera has everything you will ever need to enjoy shooting film. Slightly smaller and lighter than the popular Pentax K1000, FX-D is a more ergonomic easy-to-carry film SLR. It features a reliable metal leaf shutter, full range of manual shutter speeds with bright LED exposure scale in the viewfinder, aperture priority mode, exposure lock and timer. Arguably the best designed camera of the Yashica FX-series, it shares a lot of features with a highly rated Contax 139. In addition to Yashica branded glass, Contax and Carl Zeiss lenses can also be mounted on this camera, which makes it attractive cost-effective alternative to Contax bodies. User manual is available here.
This particular unit is a rare "SE" version in excellent condition - no dents or major scuffs. There is minor brassing around the film door frame, and a coule of scratches on the bottom, near the battery cap - that's it. Lettering on the dials is crisp and bright. Functionally the camera is perfect - shutter fires properly at all speeds, film transport, timer and meter all work great. Viewfinder and focusing screen are bright and clear. Light seals and mirror guard are brand new ($25 value). Original leatherette on this body was professionally replaced with genuine cowhide leather in Camo pattern. The camera comes with three lenses - perfect for wildlife photographer:
Yashica ML 50mm f/1.7 prime (sharp and fast normal lens, great build quality!)
Yashica DSB 70-210mm f/4 telephoto zoom (versatile lens for birding, etc.)
Yashica 2x teleconverter (doubles your reach!)
All three lenses are in EXC+ to MINT condition. Crystal clear glass, no fungus or oil on the apertures. Focusing is smooth. Barrels show almost no signs of use, just one tiny nick on the front rim of the 50mm lens (does NOT interfere with filter mounting). All generic lens caps are included, Hoya skylight filter, as well as fresh batteries for the meter, colorful vintage strap and a clean Yashica camera bag to fit everything in. Very neat package, made-in-Japan film SLR, great tool to learn photography, perfectly restored for you.
