Here we have an excellent Minolta SLR, the a7 (known in some markets as the Maxxum 7 or Dynax 7) with Minolta AF 50mm F/1.7 fast prime lens and lens cap. This camera is fully functional and ready to produce another lifetime of fantastic photos.

For a full review of this camera, see our article here.

Cosmetically excellent and mechanically perfect, this Minolta a7 works exactly as it should. The mirror box, film compartment, viewfinder, battery compartment, and prism are all clean and without issues. All knobs, dials, levers, and buttons actuate as they should, and all functions work as intended. 

The included fast prime lens is the standard 50mm focal length and features a fast maximum aperture of F/1.7. It is in excellent condition, with clean glass elements free of fungus, balsam separation, haze and scratches. The aperture ring clicks into its detents with precision and the blades are snappy and free of oil. 

This lens allows for exceptional low-light photographs, gorgeous subject isolation for portraits, and beautiful bokeh! A very sharp lens even wide open, when stopped down to F/4 and above the lens becomes exceedingly sharp and crisp, producing amazingly fine detail. It's lightweight, compact, and a perfect lens for snapshots, street photography, portrait work, landscapes, and any general photography. 

The Minolta a7 is a fantastic and modern film camera by Minolta, possibly the brand's most advanced and incredible film SLR ever made. It features everything most modern DSLRs feature, and is one of the easiest film cameras for digital users to adapt to. 

This is the kind of camera that will do everything a student, an advanced user, or professional could ask of it. Offering a full suite of shooting modes (PASM), multiple zoom configuration, multiple metering controls and auto-exposure shooting, it's a camera that's about as full-featured as cameras get. It's also a great choice for students who are eager to learn.

The camera uses Minolta's A mount, meaning that countless amazing Minolta and Sony A mount lenses made throughout the years can naturally mount to this machine. This opens up a world of amazing glass options, as Minolta's lenses are time and again shown to be among the best in the world. 

Batteries are not included. 

The camera will be carefully packaged and shipped immediately.
