Black Yashica FX-D w/ Freshly CLA'd Carl Zeiss 50mm f/1.7 Lens in Excellent Condition
You could call the FX-D a Contax 139 Quartz Lite. It used the same chassis, shutter, viewfinder, and meter, but did away with multiple exposure and TTL flash capabilities among a few other minor deletions. That makes it a great budget gateway into Zeiss lensdom. The FX-D offers Aperture-Priority and full Manual exposure modes, and has an excellent SPD (silicon photo diode) meter. The shutter release is very responsive in the Contax tradition. This copy has had its leatherette replaced and is in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition with some slight wear and light scratching on the bottom plate. The 50/1.7 Zeiss lens has minor finish wear surrounding the filter ring and a couple of partially rubbed-off numerals on the focusing scale (see photos). It has been fully CLA'd (cleaned, lubed, adjusted) with the helicoid regreased, and the optics and mechanicals are in tip-top condition. This FX-D has been fully film-tested as all of our cameras at 678 are, and is working normally. New light seals and a new mirror bumper have been installed.Weight with lens is a very manageable 660 grams (23 oz). A PDF manual is easily found online at butkus.org.
