    hello friends, today I received this camera Yashica TL Electro X, to be honest my friend Jack had seen me with my nex7 a couples weeks ago, so we talked of everything, photography, family, and he told me about his brother was a great photographer for many years, and he now lives in Germany and had a old camera in the basement storing dust, then said it going to give me,so as a joke I said, to changed the camera for turkey, because work in a butcher shop, so today Jack came to pick some steaks and gave me the camera and I gave the turkey, :), anyway when I opened the old leather backpack I was very surprised inside was 2 lenses and 1 teleconverter 3x, has nothing to dust, and scratches, beautiful, well-preserved to be from 1968.

    I've been reviewing some more about this lenses and I think it's M42, anyone of you have more information about this?

    Nice! As I've said in another thread, this was my first serious camera. It is a M42 mount & some of those old Yashica lenses are held in high regard. This one looks like it's almost brand new. It's a super easy camera to use. If you can find a battery for it you should grab a roll of film and go shoot it.

    I think it was teefin that started the other recent post about this camera & that thread has a link to the manual. In many ways I wish I hadn't traded up from this camera to a Yashica FR, but I really wanted bayonet mount lenses at the time. Foolish youth. :)


    p.s.- here's the link to that thread.

    Thanks for the information if, in fact is in excellent condition, had a roll of film inside, I hope to get it in Radioshack and buy the battery tomorrow or Friday and I will try some shots. :)

    Congrats for the neat score, not bad for a turkey swap...
