Arguably the best compact SLR in Yashica FX series, FX-D is an excellent full-featured alternative to more bulky cameras often recommended for photography students. Very ergonomic 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, shares many features with Contax 139. This particular camera is a seldom seen Special edition version, just restored with new light seals and genuine leather cover.
Shutter, meter, film transport, timer all work properly. Brand new seals and mirror guard installed for years of trouble-free operation.
Very good overall, no dents or major scratches. A few small dings, mostly on the bottom - please see photos. Bright and clear lettering on the dials. Focusing screen and viewfinder are dust-free. Original leatherette was replaced with genuine brown deer hide leather - one of the softest we have available.
- Yashica ML 50mm f/2.0 lens (made in Japan). MINT- condition, clear glass, no scratches or fungus. Aperture is snappy and blades are oil-free. Focusing is smooth. The barrel of the lens shows minimal signs of use. Great prime lens, excellent optically - often compared to Carl Zeiss equivalent. New generic front cap included.
- Genuine Yashica soft camera case (will need a clean), vintage camera strap, body cap and a set of fresh batteries for the camera.
