    Nikon FM2N (75$ US + shipping)

    • Everything works as it should, speeds and meter are very good.
    • Since I got it, I replaced the light seals and repaired a small bump on the metal part of the viewfinder.
    • Very generous brassing, as shown in the pictures.
    • Included : Third-party rapid winder, body cap and neoprene strap.


    Nikkor 50mm 1.4 Ai-S (100$ US + shipping)

    • Barrel in very good condition.
    • Glass is excellent : no fungus or haze, no scratches, very little dust.
    • Possible issue : aperture ring a bit stiff and focussing ring a bit too smooth.
    • Included : front cap.


    Minolta XE-7 (20$ US + shipping)


    • Super smooth film winding.
    • Light seals were replaced 2 months ago.
    • Speed and shutter seems accurate.
    • Issues : meter underexpose by about 1 1/2 stop and sometimes has the «jumpy needle» syndrome. I cleaned the ISO dial contacts and it is now better than before, so maybe a better cleaning will get rid of the problem.
    • Prism desilvering : you can see it in the last picture. It makes the viewfinder a bit darker, but I didn’t really notice it when my eye was against the back of the camera.
    • Other than these issues and the brassing, it is a very functional camera in manual mode.
    • Included : original body cap.

    Items are located in Canada. Payment by Paypal only. I have done what I think is an honest description and will do my best to answer any question you might have.

    Thanks!

    $10 for a working (sort of) XE-7 (one of the best cameras Minolta ever made) sounds like a deal! How much would shipping and insurance cost to the USA/West Des Moines, Iowa (Zipcode 50266)?

    Thanks!

    Just received the XE-7, and at first glance it's a steal! It even came with working batteries!

    The battery test lever seems to be stuck, but I think I can live with that. :smile:

    Thank you for a pleasant transaction!

    I completely forgot about that part when I did the description as it's not something that ever bothered me...really sorry about that. When I got the camera, it was already malfunctioning.

    I hope you will enjoy the camera!

    Thanks again.

    The two XE series cameras I have/had both had sticky battery test levers.
