Yashica MG-1 35mm Film Rangefinder Camera - With Lens Cap, and Optional Battery Adapter - Excellent Condition
Here we have a fantastic condition Yashica MG-1 35mm film rangefinder camera. Comes with original lens cap, and the option to include a new battery adapter and battery, more details below.
The camera has a clean film and battery compartments, clear and clean glass, shutter and aperture blades are perfectly clean and oil-free, focus ring spins smoothly, all levers and buttons function perfectly. The rangefinder and viewfinder are both crystal clear, with a decently contrasting focus patch. Focus throw is smooth and weighted and feels nice.
The metering system and its corresponding lights in the viewfinder and on the body work perfectly.
The camera is in very good cosmetic condition. The black paint is very nice, with minimal signs of use (the photos do an accurate job of showcasing this camera's excellent looks). It is one of the prettiest vintage cameras around.
This camera comes with a Yashinon 45mm F/2.8 fixed prime lens. This is a perfect focal length for general photography, snap shots, and street photography. It's an exceptionally sharp lens, excellent at resolving detail, and Yashica's glass does very well to enhance contrast and render colors accurately. It's a fine lens attached to a fine camera.
The MG-1 originally used a battery that's difficult to find these days. Lucky for you, we've taken care of that. This camera comes with a brand new battery as well as the necessary adapter if you choose to purchase it at a small cost. You can also source this adapter and battery on your own, and we can offer assistance if you need it - just send a message.
It will be packaged securely and shipped immediately.
