Item details

Very good Yashica FR I with a ML 50mm f/1.9 lens. The FR I was a by-product of Yashica's collaboration with Zeiss Ikon to build the Contax RTS. Intended as Yashica's entry into professional level photography, the FR I is a fine camera, but didn't make any inroads in the professional market dominated by Nikon and Canon.

It has two modes, Aperture Priority and Manual. Yashica used the same chassis and Contax/Yashica lens mount for the FR series, a very robust structure with motor drive capability and electronic shutter release. There is little use of plastics in this design, all metal covers including brass top and bottom plates.

Shutter and meter are working correctly. There is some brassing at the strap lugs and the leading edge of the prism housing. No dents or nicks, some paint loss from the film door and wear on the baseplate. Fresh light seals and batteries.

Like all ML series lenses, this lens has the advantages of Yashica's most advanced coatings, and the design collaboration with Zeiss Ikon.
