I just bought a yashica fx3 camera with 3 lenses at a yard sale for 20$.
The camera is in working order but need to be reskin with should not be a problem.
The problem is with one of the lens...
No real branding on it so its hard to identify.
The lens cap says IMAGE on it.
On the barel I can read this: AUTO IMAGE 1:2.8 f - 28mm 88304085 52mm diameter
It's a 28mm f2.8 and look in OK shape, but the aperture blade are stuck wide open.
I took the lens apart (parts of it anyway) to find out that the apreture blades are not realy stuck, I can actualy close and open them from the lever inside.
There is a spring in there that seems to be disloged... I think the problem might be there, but when I put the spring back where I think it goes... it just wont stay there.
Any hint or help would be greatly apreciated.
I could post picture later if it is required.
