    I would like some more lenses for my Yashica FX-D Quartz. I have very little money to play with as I am a college student. Would these lenses fit my camera and are they a decent purchase? I don't want to buy complete junk but I would like some more lenses.

    Earlier Yashica SLR lenses were screw mount and the later ones are Y/C
    bayonet mount which will fit your FX-D.

    These appear to be the later ones but why not ask the seller to be sure?

    I contacted the seller and am awaiting a reply. Any other reasons I should not buy these?

    If they have the bayonet mount and if they are truly in good condition as the
    seller states, it look like a good bargain.

    The seller has a good record but does not appear to specialize in photo
    gear so my only reservation is: how good a judge is the seller on their
    condition?

    They are bayonet mount. I think I will take a chance on them and hope for good lens condition. Hopefully the lenses were stored in the cases and aren't all scratched up. Thanks for the help.
