    It's actually a Mamiya MSX 1000 in disguise:
    Mamiya MSX 1000 - Camera-wiki.org - The free camera encyclopedia

    The MSX cameras were later models than the TL & DTL cameras and had open aperture metering when used with SX series lenses while the earlier TL/DTL cameras had stopped down metering.

    Nice score.

    I seem to be on a roll. Last night I came across this Nikon FG for super cheap. The price of a couple of lattes. Battery was dead of course. Owner had no idea if it worked or not. Came with a flash unit and two lenses. This 50mm, and a 75-240mm.

    I got it home, and after changing batteries, I thought maybe I had bought a lemon. Very small investment, so ya win some ya lose some. The mirror was stuck in the up position. I couldn't figure out how to get it to stay down. Advance lever wouldn't move. Shutter button wouldn't actuate.So, after a half hour or so of scratching my head, I did a search, and found a post that said to try changing the shutter speed to bulb, because maybe the shutter cycle had not completed. Guess what? I switched to bulb, and click....it went down, and I now have a perfectly functioning Nikon FG. I know that they aren't Nikon's finest work, but it looks to be a decent enough camera.

    The FG is a fine camera. It's not an FM2n but wasn't meant to be either. Enjoy.

    I recently sold all of my A-Series Canon......well, i still have a pair of AT-1, but.........I thought the A-1 was a fine camera. I shot it (probably) for a solid two years. So i was very comfortable with it.
    I had a pair of them, and they never let me down.
    I did not really cared for the way the A-Series meter in manual mode, but you get used to it.
    After i got my F-1 New working again, i had no real need for the A-1 or AE-1P.

    Here's my latest find. Picked it up for next to nothing. Installed a battery, and everything works! This thing is built like a tank. The lens that came on it is also in great condition.

    I think my sister had almost that exact camera-lens combo. I had given her the lens and it was the first time I bought from one of the big NY photo stores - and first time to buy Tokina (I think it was around '80).

    This Tokina 35-105mm has something called "Close Focus". How is this different from a Macro lens? I'm not sure I understand what it is.
