Ok, what I have here is the collection of Yashica stuff my father and I gathered over the last 20 years. While the light meters still work, I really consider them both useable for astrophotography. Even with out the cameras the collection of lenses alone is worth what I am asking even just as project lenses. Now for the problems.

The silver topped FR has a light leak on the door hinge. It is small and only is a problem in really bright light from certain angles. It is fine for astrophotography, but should be kept in the case during the day just to be safe. It's frame counter doesn't work.

The FR1 works great, except something has happened to the little blades that should engage the canister to let you rewind. They don't quite reach the film canister, so you have to open the camera and manually rewind it. Other than that it works fine, but what an annoying problem. Probably easily fixable and may even have something to do with the fact that it used to have the motor winder attachment on it. No idea whether the winder works, but I will throw it in.

The short cable release is made from a broken swith but works fine.
The long cable release has a really long cord (~25') and also works great.

I am missing front lens caps from two of the 50mm's and one of the zooms. I have both camera caps, but only one rear cap for the 50mm's mounted on the cameras. All unmounted lenses have end caps.

The little silver rings allow m42 lenses to fit yashica or contax cameras. The straps, manuals, and case in the picture are included.
All glass and lens mechanisms are in good working order.


50mm f/1.7
50mm f/1.9
50mm f/2.0
28mm f/2.8
28mm f/2.8
70-210 Zoom f/4
70-210 Zoom f/4

Just think, the Leonids are coming up and you could have both these going at once to cover more of the sky.

$150 including shipping in the US. I prefer paypal, but can work with a money order as well.

Thanks for looking,

Paul McCarl
