    I always wanted a TLR and a couple of years ago I bought this Yashica D. I never could get the hang of the TLR ergonomics and lurch around like a drunken sailor when trying to compose. I don't think I've used it since shortly after I bought it. So, it's time for it to go to someone who'll use it, and free up some more space on my camera shelf. Lens is the Yashikor (triplet, I believe, but I thought it got the job done quite nicely). There ae some light scuffs on the front - only visible when looking through the glass at a bright source (Like a 4-LED petzel, not petzval, which is how I found them) and when you're trying to focus on the front glass. I haven't tried the self timer or the flash sync, but I tested the shutter this morning (see below). Take the higher speeds with a grain of salt since I"m using audacity and its really only accurate to around 1/200s.

    $75 + shipping (USPS Priority Mail in CONUS). I prefer not to deal with the hassle of customs forms and shipping overseas. 3% to APUG. Payment via paypal (I cover the fees, unless you're inclined to pay as a gift).

    Thanks,
    Dan

    I have one of these and this is a great camera and the price is fantastic. I paid $175 for mine about 12 years ago. I've also dealt with Dan several times and wouldn't hesitate to again. Great camera sold but a great guy. You can't lose!

    In addition, Mark Hama will CLA these guys. He did mine last year and it's like new.

    Dean's Photographica also does quick, and very nice work on these. Just completed a CLA on mine in under a week, got it back looking like new, and working fine. Charged me $59 + return shipping.

    I would buy it in a minute. My first "real" camera was a Yashica D. I can attest that it is a rugged, solid, reliable work horse. But I am trying to reduce my number of cameras, so even with the most sincere desires, I must abstain.

    Take my word for it, having multiple Yashica's or any TLR for that matter is not a bad idea. I just bought a Walzflex with a non-functioning focus but it still takes great pic's. That along with my Yashica Mat 124G, 24 and two Rollei's make up my TLR armory. If I didn't think that it would end in divorce I would like to add a "D" to my list.

    I think my description of the state of the glass was unclear. The viewscreen is fine (could use some cleaning) and has a fresnel (I believe that's standard for these, with a red grid). I didn't see any scratches on the viewing lens. I only saw them when I looked through the taking lens at a bright light and focused on the glass itself (ie, the scratches are pretty light, unlike an Ektar I have). With the shutter closed and looking in room light, I couldn't see them - so, if there are scratches on the viewing lens (which is possible since they're on the taking lens) I probably wouldn't see them either.

    I believe I found the negatives for the film I ran through the camera. If so, I'll post a couple tonight.
