    Yashica 124 G + Zoom Lens - Mint Exterior

    Yashica Mat 124 G 6x6 120 Twin Lens Reflex Camera
    A super amazing TLR camera dated from 1970's to 1986's.
    The last Yashica TLR made.

    Contains four-element 80mm f3.5 Yashinon taking lens.
    Copal shutter operates from 1 second to 1/500 sec, plus B bulb mode.

    This camera has barely been used.
    The exterior is in immaculate condiiton, excellent, almost no signs of use at all.
    Light meter has a battery and has tested fantastic against my handheld meter.
    Shutter speeds are accurate, winding film advance mechanism works great.

    There is a slight issue with the taking lens though.
    The taking lens element has some haze to it, which may not affect images, but if you're the one who is able to get it fixed, this camera will be a real bargain for the condition. Please do view the photos to get the full depiction.
    The viewing lens element has one or two specs of dust, does not affect usability at all.

    Comes with:
    - Yashica 124 G
    - Original Box, manual, front cap, leather case
    - Yashica Macro attachment, taking and viewing lenses for TLR.

    This camera has many years of it ahead to go. The camera is mint, and just needs work on the bottom (taking lens) to clear up some haze and this camera will last you many many years.

    Because of the taking lens, the price is:
    $220 shipped in CONUS
    International please PM me.

    I'm a usual seller/buyer on RFF, FM, eBay (lamlux), and other forums.

    For those interested, I found a pretty straight forward tutorial, on how to CLA a 124 yourself:

    Ah! I actually looked up your DIY yesterday in attempting to see if I was able to repair it myself.

    How cool. Thanks for chiming in!

    damn... I've always wanted to own one of these. I wish I had $220 right about now. For all those who are weary about the haze... I used to have a Rolleicord who's taking lens was covered in haze. It flared, but not as badly as I thought it would, and with a hood it handled the flaring pretty well.

    I hope you don't mind me posting a photo here, but these were taken with my haze covered rollei

    I don't mind the photo's at all, thank you for sharing!! they are gorgeous, and just goes to show, minor things like haze doesn't ruin the photo. Thank you

    I always wanted a Yashica 124 G as well, but the fiancee's Yashicaflex gets not enough use as it is, and I need to fund repairs to that camera.. (the film counter doesn't return back to 0 after a roll is complete)

    Sweet Triumph.

    ARGH. The more I look at this thread, the more I want to buy it. The girlfriend is making me want a TLR again...

    A fine camera indeed, and in better overall condition than mine. I had to clean my mirror and focusing screen, which wasn't hard but man were they dusty/dirty. If you're lucky, you can just open it up and clean the back of the rear element(s) and be done with it.

    Broke it last night, coming off the market and probably won't return since the cost of repair will make it unsellable.
