    I just picked up a Yashica FX-D a few minutes ago.

    Hope your new camera works out for you.

    I hope so too, The sure shot of mine has a serious vigneting thing going on. That kinda sort of leaves me looking at it for a more intentional use than spur of the moment like P-Shooters where designed for, thus I wanted something a little more practical.

    I am finding information on it a little hard to come by but the Yashica name on it is one I have known for a wile so it's worth buying to fill that void.

    Yes, I was doing research on Yashica, and not only does yours have a zeiss lens (obvs it says that on the camera), but the one I picked up accepts zeiss lenses...
    :D

    Yay for us!

    I'm kind of curious how the pictures turn out from your little buddy there...be sure to get some uploaded at some point.

    Thanks, I am unsure what the going price on one of these is but I am fairly sure I got a good price though, It's from the same dealer I get most of my gear from and as usual it's in perfect condition.

    *EDIT*
    I might have to retake these pictures and get my cat hair off it :lol: Oops, I have got to work on that.


    So am I, I'll have some tomorrow. They won't be anything spectacular (24 shots in fifteen minuets wile looking for things I have not shot in a heavily shot location can only yield so much :lol:) but, I will have some to show.

    Well....Talk about trial by fire. I just went out and took twenty one shots of a tree that just fell in the wind and rain. Regardless of how they turn out I am glad I had it with me.

    I have not gotten the tree shots back but I'll see if anything is postable when I do.

    so it works perfectly...though appears the lens is a bit yellowed? Or is there another explanation for that?

    Yeah she works beautifully

    I don't know, given the weather and the fact I had not yet cleaned the lens at the time there may be but it is possible the lens is a bit yellowed given it's age. I'll find out before long though, I am currently working on a fourth roll of film into it now.
