Minolta introduced this camera in 1981, along with some other "smaller" sisters.
It was the top model of the product line, before they figured out auto-focus. So this is basically the most advanced Minolta manual focus SLR ever produced.
Came in black or chrome, we think the black one is much more sexy. It was awarded the Camera of the Year award in Europe in 1981. But this does not make it great camera by itself. Sales got boosted, and it became the most successful camera for Minolta, since they introduced the SRT line of cameras before these came out.
It features automatic exposure, program mode, and other eighties things. When cars were traveling through space and time in movies, this so high-tech. LEDs and stuff.
The shutter sound is clean, and is distinctive. Also we like the grip of the thing. The design itself is also something different and lighter than Canon's similar AE-1 from that time. Sleek sports car lines, straight from 1981.
This complete set comes with a pristine condition Rokkor 45mm F2, which is one of the best and unique rendering Rokkor lens out there. It's just epic. True vivid Minolta colors, this is a must try.
The set includes an original winder, an original golden Minolta Strap, and a Minolta camera bag to carry it all around!
COMMAND BACK! :) You can even take pre-programmed exposures with this!
