Minolta SRT 101 35mm Film Camera with Tamron 35-80mm F/2.8-3.8 Zoom Lens - Fully Operational
Here we have a fantastic, vintage SLR camera from Minolta the SR-T 101 with a very nice lens, the Tamron 35-80mm F/2.8-3.8. The camera is fully functional, comes with a lens cap and a new battery, and is ready to produce another lifetime of fantastic photos.
It features all the wonderful assets of the SRT line, as well as a number of important features such as a full information viewfinder (showing light meter reading, shutter speed, and aperture), stop down lever for DOF preview, and extremely reliable build quality.
This camera has been thoroughly tested, and is fully functional. The battery compartment, film compartment, and mirror box, are all clean and free of dust, corrosion, or damage. The viewfinder has only minor dust typical of a vintage camera. The exterior cosmetics are nice with minor signs of use. All dials, levers, and switches actuate exactly as they should, and with typical Minolta mechanical precision.
The light meter works perfectly, and is powered by readily available batteries (which are included).
The 35-80mm zoom lens is perfect for snap shots, general photography, street photography, portraiture, nature, and architectural shooting. The fast maximum aperture of F/2.8 makes it ideal for low-light shooting, and makes it adept at producing gorgeous bokeh and subject isolation. Stopped down it becomes extremely sharp and capable of rendering very fine images.
Cosmetically and mechanically the lens is in fantastic condition. The glass elements are free of fungus, balsam separation, haze, and all other optical aberrations. The aperture blades are snappy and free of oil. Focus throw is smooth and perfectly weighted, and the aperture ring clicks into its detents with precision.
