The FX-D was a 35 mm film single-lens reflex camera introduced to the market in 1979 by the Japanese camera manufacturer Yashica. Yashica and Contax were known basically as “sister companies” and their products usually had striking similarities. This camera was called the last Yashica because, in 1983, Kyocera acquired the Yashica/Contax brands and the cameras that followed were made for them by Cosina.
