Yashica FX-80

A friend of my mother-in-law was over visiting from China. Seeing my little collection he said he had a "Yamaha" camera at home he would send to me.


This duly arrived a couple of weeks later along with my mother-in-law. It's a Yashica (not a Yamaha) FX-80 which is the Chinese Market equivalent to the 108MP.


It had the common hot country problem with Yashica/Contax cameras in that the mirror had slid down. A small heat gun applied to the back of the mirror frame allowed me to get it back in place. Camera works fine though the lens has haze/fungus in the rear group. I have a few other Yashica lenses I can use on it though.
