Another copy of FX-D, this one is black body, finished in red leather. 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.
Shutter, meter, film transport, timer all work properly. Brand new seals and mirror guard installed for years of trouble-free operation ($25 value).
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 new red leather cover.
- Yashica ML 42-75mm f/3.5-4.5 zoom lens (made in Japan). VG condition, clear glass, no scratches or fungus. Aperture is snappy and blades are oil-free. Focusing is smooth. The barrel of the lens shows normal signs of use - some paint loss and small nicks, mostly on the aperture ring. Genuine Yashica front cap is included.
- A set of fresh batteries for the camera.
