Lenses:

Minolta SR mount (MC/MD)


Conclusion:

Good camera that have a nice and solid feel to it.
Very reliable and built like a tank.
Mirror lock is aways a plus

Light meter is made for a mercury battery and doesn't seems to work well with today's replacement that don't give out the exact voltage
.

It have a on, off switch for the light meter under the camera.
And it don't have a sleep mode so the light meter is always on until manually turned off.



Thumbs up:

Mirror lock

Thumbs down:
Light meter doesn't well work with today's batteries
