This is my first Minolta SLR
and I was surprised of the weight of this machine. I used to own Pentax K1000 in
the early 80s and I guess the size and weight of the two are almost identical.
This one was delivered to my office in a hard case box fitted with Rokkor 55mm
f/1.7. After some googling, I found out that this particular model was named

USA and Canada, SR-T 303 elsewhere) is basically a Minolta SR-T 101, but with a
flash hot shoe, a focusing screen with split-image-rangefinder,
multi-exposure-capability, and the selected aperture value visible in the
The camera has been cleaned,
mercury battery replacement and the metering works just fine. The seller also
supplied me with the 70-200mm Pentacon zoom which is full of fungus. I'll leave
the zoom for a while until the need arises.
