Reliable camera, made in Japan, this unit is refinished in stunning Gold genuine leather that matches the black body perfectly.
Shutter, meter, film transport, timer all work properly. Brand new seals and mirror guard installed for years of trouble-free operation.
Near mint. No dents, paint loss or major scratches anywhere. Bright and clean lettering on the dials. Focusing screen and viewfinder are pristine. Original leatherette was professionally replaced with genuine Gold leather.
- Yashica ML 50mm f/1.4 prime lens (top lens in the last two photos). EXC condition, clear glass, no scratches or fungus, minor internal dust which will not affect perfromance. Aperture is snappy and blades are oil-free, just minor staining on edges. Focusing is smooth. The barrel of the lens shows minimal signs of use, just a tiny bit of brassing on the front rim and focus ring. Warning 81B filter (great for portraits!) and circular polarizer filter are included, as well as original Yashica front cap. Great, sharp prime, often compared to equivalent Zeiss product in optical quality.
- Camera strap and a set of fresh batteries for the meter.
