Minolta XE-5 35mm Film SLR Camera Body with Minolta Body Cap - Fully Operational - Same as Leica R-Series


Here we have a legendary vintage SLR camera from Minolta - the XE-5. This camera is in excellent condition and is fully functional. It has been thoroughly tested and comes with an official Minolta body cap and new batteries installed.

This camera offers quite possibly the best build quality of any Japanese SLR camera ever made. It is truly an amazing machine. Every knob, dial, and switch actuates with mechanical precision that is unrivaled in the world of Japanese SLRs. 

This is the little brother to the XE-7, which makes it kin to the very best SLR camera Minolta ever produced. The only difference being that the XE-5 is not capable of double-exposures, and the viewfinder shutter has been removed. These are extremely minor adjustments to an overall amazing design.

It is the same body and design used by Leica for their R-series SLR cameras. This machine was licensed by the legendary German company from Minolta. The build quality is second-to-none and this camera feels incredibly robust in the hand. A truly high-end piece of photographic machinery. 

The camera uses Minolta's SR Mount, which means that any of Minolta's fantastic MC / MD lenses will fit on this camera body. 

It will be shipped immediately and packaged securely to ensure safe and timely delivery. 

This is just a fantastic, beautiful, fully-functional camera. One of the best from any company of any era.
