Yashica FXD Quartz
Yashica FXD Quartz Black
Custom restored Yashica FX-D Quartz film SLR in excellent condition. Arguably the best camera in Yashica FX series, FX-D is a very robust, easy-to-use and ergonomic beginner film camera. It allows aperture-priority shooting as well as a full range of manual shutter speeds. Like other FX cameras, it comes with a C/Y mount which will let you mount high-end Contax and Carl Zeiss lenses, in addition to Yashica's own vast range of lenses.
Body of this camera shows minor signs of use - a few shallow scratches on the bottom, minor brassing int eh strap lug area, no dents or major scuffs. Shutter fires properly at all speeds, film transport, self-timer and meter all work great. Viewfinder and focusing screen are dust-free and bright. Original deteriorated leatherette on this body was professionally replaced with brand new black leatherette for a timeless classic look. Brand new light seals and mirror guard were installed ($25 value). This camera comes with Yashica ML 50mm f/1.7 normal prime lens. Less common than f2.0 lens, this is a great quality lens, often favorably compared to Carl Zeiss equivalents at 1/5 the cost. Glass is scratch-free, no fungus. Aperture action is snappy, no oil on the blades. The barrel shows very minimal signs of use. The lens has a Tiffen UV filter mounted, which is stuck to the front threads. This is a good quality protective filter, but can be removed at buyers' request (will have to be destroyed in the process). Generic front cap, fresh batteries for the meter, camera strap and genuine Yashica camera case (fair shape) are included.
This particular bundle includes a couple of rare genuine Yashica accessories - FX winder and CS-201 flash. Both are in excellent condition with minor surface wear, and work great with the camera (require AA batteries, not supplied). The winder was refinished in new black leatherette to match the camera. Great value in this set, all made-in-Japan components.
