Yashica FX-D Chrome / Rust Dot
Restored Yashica FX-D with a matching short telephoto lens. 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, compatible with a wide range of high quality Carl Zeiss, Contax, Yashica and third party lenses. 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).
EXC, no dents or major scratches. A few small dings on top, some chrome pitting around the prism cover and brassing on the sides. Bright and clear lettering on the dials. Focusing screen and viewfinder are dust-free. There are several faint cleaning marks on the focusing screen (will not affect function). Original leatherette was professionally replaced with brand new genuine leather cover in Rust Dot pattern.
- Yashica YUS 135mm f/2.8 prime lens. Very nice lens for portraits and close-ups. EXC++ 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 minimal signs of use, just some discoloration on the focusing ring. Generic front cap included.
- Set of fresh batteries for the camera.
