Before you all go a'worrying, I am selling this kit to help fund my jump to LF. This is my kit. So it is in good shape. I have an old Zeiss Ikon Contina 35mm RF if I want to mess around with the small stuff. So, without any further ado...

IMG-20131221-00758.jpg

Camera Body:

Minolta X-700 Black
That's right. BLACK!
I do not like to refer to items as mint. Once they leave the showroom that generally eliminates appropriate use of that description. BUT THIS THING DOES LIKE VERY NICE. Works well. Definitely a good camera. Includes leather case (kind of rough in spots but all there and in one pretty piece) and the owner's manual. And I'll even throw in the new batteries.

Lenses:

Rokkor-X: 50mm f/1.7 MD mount lens
Filter mount diameter - 55mm. This lens is clean and smooth. Sweet fast Rokkor glass.

Albinar 80-200 f/3.9 Macro Zoom
Filter mount diameter - 55mm. This lens works smoothly. There is some dust in there but nothing that hurts functionality or light transmission.

Camera bag:
No manufacturer info. Dimensions: Interior - 10Lx7Wx6H (30Lx18Lx15H) Two side pockets, fasten with hook and loop. Front pouch reaches the length of the bag. Again, hook and loop closures. Carries by a handle on top and a shoulder strap. No zippers on this bag. Only downfall IMHO. However, it is clean and in good shape. It will get you there.

Filters
The circular filters I have used for years. They are in great shape. The Cokins I recieved from Lord knows where and I did not use them much. They are in varying stages of might be scratched.

I simply wish this to go to a good home and, given the bunch that peruses this sight, I believe that this will be a fact. I have other photographs, closeups, that I will post links to below so you can get a better look.

I don't want to get rich on this kit. How about 170USD. I will ship anywhere. I will ship UPS as this is what I have available at work. Contact me for shipping costs. If you wish to use paypal I have an account. If you wish to send a check or money order and wait for the money to hit my account, this is fine as well. And probably preferred. Not a deal breaker, though. Let the gawking commence.

Nice kit, especially if it is free from electronic problems. One of my favorite cameras. I am pretty sure that all X700's are black, though.

If that is indeed the case, then that would be Chris With His Foot In His Mouth, Take 412. ACTION!

Why is the color of the X-700 worth noting? I've only ever seen them black, albeit not a great number of them.

New additions

Found a 28mm Albinar f/2.8, MD mount. Works fine. Clean. Aperture adjusts well.
Nicer bag. Keeping the piece of junk in the picture to lug around lenses and filters for my 4x5.

New price

$160 USD plus shipping.

Or...

Anyone has a decent 120mm or so Schneider Kreuznach on a Synchro Compur that is CLA-able, how about a trade.

Lemme know.

No, close this thread. Selling elsewhere. Don't want it double listed.
