Fairly Big Spring Cleaning Sale (Nikon MF, Nikon AF, Canon FD, m42)
So apparently I’ve collected quite a bit of stuff over the last little while. I’m a shooter not a collector so a bunch of it has to go. As such I’m looking to sell some stuff that doesn’t get enough (or in some cases any) use. I have positive feedback on Fourthirdsphoto, FredMiranda, Pentaxforums and GetDPI as Albino_BlacMan and on ebay as ctp046.
All prices include shipping unless otherwise noted. I accept most payment methods. All prices are negotiable and I'm happy to do package deals. If any of my prices are way out of line feel free to fire me a PM. Film and paper cutter not included. I like to keep communications quick so if I don’t hear back from you 48 hours after I send a PM/email than I reserve the right to sell the item to a different buyer.
There’s a ton of stuff here so I haven’t managed to take pictures yet (It took me 2 hours just to write all the descriptions), but I’ll get those up when I can.
Nikon EL2 (Black) – $95 - Overall good condition. A few scuffs here and there but not much for brassing. Shutter speeds sound correct. Meter appears accurate. Focus screen is nice and clean. This is a great little Nikon. This one comes with the front cap and the manual.
Nikon FM (silver) - $40 – Good condition other than a small ding on the prism which doesn’t seem to have any effect on the function of the camera. Shows signs of use but not abuse. Shutter speeds and meter appear accurate. Viewfinder is bright and dust free. Don’t have a body cap for this one right now, sorry.
Nikon FE (Silver) – $10 + Shipping – I’m selling this As-Is because I can’t get the mirror to return with any of the electronic speeds. However it seems to work good with the manual speed (1/90). The exterior looks pretty good, no major wear. The viewfinder shows some dust but nothing too serious.
Nikon AF F-601 – $20 + Shipping - Film tested in good condition. Everything seems to work (AF, meter, etc.). Exterior shows signs of use but no major dings or dents. Comes with a front cap.
Nikon EM (Black) – $15 + Shipping - I Haven’t tested this one. It’s missing the top of the film rewind lever so I’m selling it As-Is (for parts or repair). Maybe someone can make good use of it. Exterior looks alright with no major dings or dents. No front cap.

Canon FD Stuff
Canon New F-1 – $190 - This thing is a great shooter. It’s built like a tank and a joy to use. This one has been used but not abused. Shows some brassing along the top and bottom plates and some paint loss from use but everything works great. Film tested and everything came out great. All shutter speeds seem correct. The meter is accurate and the focus screen has minimal dust (which is easy to clean anyways). The only real flaw is the shutter is crinkled (which is pretty common with these), however as I said this one is film tested and everything came out great. Comes with a Canon FD 28/2.8 (older, non-breech-lock version) in good condition (like the camera the lens has been well used but not abused). All the FD stuff listed here was previously used by the Police department to do forensics work so it was well taken care of and has probably seen some crazy stuff.
Canon FD 35-70/4 – $65 - Overall good condition. Newer FD lens with the lock mechanism. This one shows some wear on the exterior but nothing serious. Glass is clean and clear, aperture is snappy and oil free and the zoom and focus are nice and smooth. Comes with front and rear caps.

Nikon SB-24 – $40 - Exterior looks a little rough (like it has been bouncing around in someone’s camera bag for a while). Battery compartment shows some signs of corrosion. IR beam cover shows some scratches. Rear screen shows wear but nothing too serious. Seems to work good on my D80 though, so we’ll call this one very user condition.
Yashica ML 50/2 – $10 + Shipping - Good condition. Minor wear on the exterior but overall it’s pretty clean. Glass is clean and clear. Aperture is snappy and oil free. Comes with a Vivitar UV filter and a rear caps that looks an awful lot like an untested Yashica FX-D Quartz (with leather that’s peeling).
Kenlock 85-210/4.5 - $10 plus shipping (OBO) – Up for sale is a lens so rare that I can’t even find a review for it. This a manual focus, internal zoom lens in PK mount (the old one so you can’t use it in shutter priority mode). This thing was made in Japan and has some pretty decent build quality. Internal zoom action is really nice and smooth. When focusing there are a few spots with a little more resistance than other spots but nothing major. Aperture is smooth and blades are oil free. The lens had a little bit of wabble, but I nothing that affects function (IMO). Optics are clean and clear, no internal fungus or haze. The exterior is nice and shows only minimal paint loss (there’s only one spot near the “Lens made in Japan” writing. Comes with front and rear caps along with the hood (55mm screw in type) as well as a Hoya skylight filter and black fake leather hard-case. You know you want to be the first to review this thing! If you can cover the cost of shipping, paypal and the box I ship it and give me $5 to make my trip to the post office worthwhile than it can be yours!
Pentax ME - $10 plus shipping (OBO) – Last up is a Pentax ME for parts/repair. The meter works but the shutter won’t cock. Viewfinder is also pretty dirty. If you’re handy I’m sure you could have a great camera. If you can cover the cost of shipping, paypal and the box I ship it and give me $5 to make my trip to the post office worthwhile than it can be yours!
