Yashica FX-D is arguably the best compact SLR in Yashica FX series, sharing many features with Contax 139. Very ergonomic, light and easy-to-carry camera, with aperture-priority shooting, full range of manual shutter speeds, exposure lock and self-timer. Like other FX- series Yashicas, this SLR is equipped with a robust metal-leaf quartz-controlled Copal shutter and C/Y lens mount, which allows it to be used with used with a wide range of high quality Carl Zeiss, Contax, Yashica and third party lenses. Seriously under-rated camera, made in Japan. This particular camera was just professionally refinished in genuine pigskin leather embossed in Black Alligator pattern and looks stunning.
Shutter, meter, film transport, timer all work properly. Brand new seals and mirror guard installed for years of trouble-free operation ($25 value).
Excellent. A few minor scuffs, no dents or major scratches. Bright and clean lettering on the dials. Focusing screen and viewfinder are bright with just a couple of tiny specs of dust (no effect on function). Original leatherette was replaced with genuine pigskin leather in "Black Alligator" pattern.
- Yashica ML 50mm f/2 prime lens (made in Japan). MINT condition, crystal-clear glass, no scratches or fungus. Aperture is snappy and blades are oil-free. Focusing is smooth. The barrel of the lens shows practically no signs of use. Great lens, often compared to Carl Zeiss equivalents in optical performance. Quality HOYA HMC UV filter and genuine Yashica front cap are included.
- Yashica CS-201 power flash in excellent cosmetic and working condition (batteries not included). Factory manuals for the camera and flash, vintage camera strap, Yashica camera case (a bit sticky on the edges) and a set of fresh batteries.
