    Yes, it comes with Nikkor Q-C 1:3.5 75mm lens. It looks nice and everything seems to work just fine.

    Personally I would have grabbed the Yashica or Mamiya offered here over the Aires but if you're not sure TLR cameras are for you at least you'll not have spent much finding out. There's a boatload of Japanese TLRs from the 50's and 60's and this one seems a middle of the road. Like anything what will matter most will be how it's been cared for over the years and how clean and fog free the lens is. In my many years of TLR experience I'm a strict Rollei person myself and with patience have obtained Rolliecords as cheap as $50 and even a Rolleiflex 2.8 Planar for $150, ugly but very useable. But these are rare to come by. Thing is older TLRs do require a good CLA to get the most out of them and even to confirm the focusing is not off and the better built in the first place and the more common they were for parts and experienced technicians the better. But wish you the best in this one. Which lens does this one have? The Nikkor, Zuiko or Coral?

    Nikkor. And it is very clean, otherwise I wouldn't have taken it. I think my plan is to use this for a bit and then get another one - Mamiya C220 or 330 is high on my list, because of the lenses. I don't mind having several TLRs... The same with my 35mm - I have an F-1 (currently being serviced) and plan to get an FTb. And lots of lenses.

    Nice. Share photos later, ok?

    I shot 7 frames through that same glass Saturday, on a Tower Reflex... and I've taken it on a couple long backpacking trips

    It's a good lens, if the camera works you will have something worth keeping. Relatively lightweight for a 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 camera.

    Hi - I'm in Kingston (On) and have a Yashica-Mat which is in excellent shape. You can have it for $50.
