Minolta SR-T 101 35mm Film Camera with Minolta MD Rokkor X PF 50mm F/1.4 Fast Prime Lens
Here we have a fantastic, vintage SLR camera from Minolta the SR-T 101 with a very nice lens, the MD Rokkor-X PF 50mm F/1.4. The camera is being sold at a discount due to a faulty light meter that does not function. There is also minor dust in the viewfinder as well as a minor blemish in one spot of the outer edge of the front lens element. It comes with 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 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 aside from the light meter. The battery compartment, film compartment, mirror box and focus screen are all clean and free of dust, corrosion, or damage. The exterior cosmetics are phenomenal. All dials, levers, and switches actuate exactly as they should, and with typical Minolta mechanical precision.
The included lens is a wonderful fast prime lens of the highest quality. The Minolta Rokkor 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 fantastic condition. The glass elements are free of balsam separation and haze. 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.
