Includes AF Nikkor 35-70mm lens.

This Nikon F401X is an advanced but easy-to-use 35mm film SLR offering autofocus, auto-exposure (program, aperture-priority, or shutter-priority), Nikon's famed matrix metering, and a built-in flash with TTL exposure. The included lens is the versatile AF Nikkor 35-70mm f3.3-4.5. This lens can also be used on modern Nikon digital SLRs. The camera uses 4 ordinary AA batteries for power (not included).

Condition notes
Both the camera and included lens are in very good functional and aesthetic condition. All modes of the camera were tested with a battery and film installed (the film was not developed) and everything works correctly.
