    FS: Praktica FX3 Waist Level SLR (With M42 50mm, 135mm, Extension Tubes, Case & More)

    The Praktica FX3 was a German made SLR that featured a waist level finder and accepted M42 mount lenses. This camera body is in very good cosmetic condition (pardon the dust in a few of the photos). All shutter speeds seem accurate but I have never ran a roll through it. This sale includes The camera body, a Westinar 50mm f2.8 lens (M42 Mount),an A. Schacht Ulm Travenon 135 f4.5 lens with protective tube and front and back caps (M42 Mount), Praktica Extension Tube set, leather case, and an eye level prism that attaches over the waist level finder (not pictured - forgot I had it )

    I've one of these bodies, a real neat camera. Often use it with Pentax M42 lenses. If you're someone who enjoys old glass there's a load of really interesting and usually very affordable M42 mount lenses out there and this would be an interesting and fun body to use with them.

    I've always thought that myself and I'm sad I've never had the time to give this kit a whirl. I'm sure a super multi coated takumar would be pretty snappy on one of these

    The two lenses that come with it aren't too shabby themselves. Found this post about the 135 lens
