Item for Sale
35mm Film Kit: MZ-3, FA 43mm Limited, AF280T - Tested!

Asking Price
400.00 USD

Item Location
Oregon (United States)

Item Description
If you're looking for an autofocus 35mm body but nervous about spending the money on an questionable MZ-S, the MZ-3 is the body to get. The MZ-3 has been repaired by Advanced Camera in Portland, Oregon, so you don't have to worry about plastic gear failure. The FA43 was bought from another forum member. It's the "made in Vietnam" version but I've been happy with it's performance and results. The lens includes all the accessories. The AF-280T flash includes the hard-to-find wide angle adapter and case.

Everything is clean. The MZ-3 has some minor exterior scuffing. Everything functions except the built-in flash does not work (hot shoe does work, see note on repair invoice). I never bothered to replace the battery in the date back so I don't know if it works (battery is removed to prevent acid leakage).

This kit has been tested (camera, lens, flash). See sample photo on Fuji Pro 400H. No issues with the LCD, film transport motor, autofocus, TTL flash.

I can send the full size pictures if you want a closer look.

Would prefer to sell as a kit. But open to offers.

I'll eat the shipping and insurance within the US. Willing to ship outside the US if you pay for shipping + customs minus $20 USD. Message me for a quote.
