FS: Yashica FX-2
If you're looking at this, you probably know what this is. One of the early Yashica bayonet-mounts. Very simple and reliable. When I got it about three years ago, it had a slightly bent film door. I waited a while but found an NOS one, and replaced it last year. I replaced the light seals about four months ago. It looks almost new and everything works as it should. Shutter is actually quieter than its successor, the FX-3.
It was designed for a mercury battery. You can use a silver-oxide (44) and adjust your ISO accordingly, or you can use zinc-air batteries, which put the meter right on but don't last as long. I'll include a package of the zinc-air batteries. Also including the case, which is in decent condition. Still very useable.
$60 shipped in the CONUS or trade for a soviet LTM body.
This is a great camera with a fully mechanical shutter and all kinds of wonderful lenses available to use (including some really fine ones from Zeiss).
I agree, this is a great camera. Several in my gallery were made with this one. I've just got more C/Y mounts than I can reasonably justify (to my girlfriend).
to everyone else: how about $50, includes shipping in the CONUS.
FX-2 $40 shipped
I know someone needs a good mechanical SLR with c/y mount. I can even throw in an m42 adapter.
