Minolta SRT 100 35mm Film Camera with Minolta MD 50mm F 1.7 Fast Prime Lens, Lens Hood, Battery
Here we have a fantastic vintage SLR camera from Minolta - the SR-T 100, with a very nice lens, the Minolta MD 50mm F/1.7, as well as a lens hood.
This camera is fully functional, and ready to produce another lifetime of fantastic photos.
The battery compartment, film compartment, mirror box, viewfinder, and focus screen are all clean and show little dust commensurate with age. There is no body corrosion, or bright marks, though there are a couple of areas of extremely fine blemishes. The exterior cosmetics are very nice. 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 SRT 100 is a robust, hearty camera with very exceptional build quality. The incredible CLC metering system from Minolta is used in the 100. It features all the wonderful assets of the SRT line, including a number of important features such as an informative light meter readout in the viewfinder, a stop down lever for DOF preview, and extremely reliable build quality. This is a camera that will do most everything requested of it.
The included lens is a wonderful fast prime lens of the highest quality. The Minolta MD series is well-known for producing amazing bokeh, contrast, color, and superior image quality. This fast prime example will offer exceptional low-light shooting capabilities, produce fantastic bokeh, and be incredibly sharp when stopped down. The 50mm focal length is the perfect standard for all kinds of general purpose photography, from street photography to landscapes, from snapshots to action, from portraits to architectural shooting.
Cosmetically and mechanically the lens is in very nice 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. Stop down speeds are correct and perfect. Focus throw is smooth and nicely weighted, and the aperture ring clicks into its detents with precision. Filter threads are slightly damaged, but this does not cause filters or accessories to be unable to thread onto the lens, as is shown with the supplied screw in lens hood.
Also noteworthy is that this fantastic lens can be used on modern digital cameras. A variety of adapters allow this lens to be used on many modern digital camera, including micro 4/3, Leica M-mount, Micro 4/3, Sony E-mount and Samsung NX-mount digitals, such as the Sony A7 and Fujifilm X-series.
