Default Yashicamat with the lens cleaned up

I got this one a bit ago, but the inner lens surfaces were really grimy.



With the lenses cleaned it seems fairly sharp.

By cannibalizing the other Yashicamat for parts, I got the winding crank to stay in place instead of flopping around.

Default Re: Yashicamat with the lens cleaned up

I picked one of these up locally last week for next to nothing (my first MF camera). Everything seems to work mechanically and it came with the leather case sans lens caps. Lenses were clear, but I had to clean the mirror and viewfinder due to grime. Much better now to look through. It even came with an exposed roll of film!

Now, to get some film (and a lightmeter) and see if it has any other issues.
