Minolta Super A

This is a gorgeous rangefinder that I cannot wait to use. It has classic styling and features that matched or bested many of its rivals. Of particular note are the centrally located shutter speed selector and click-stop aperture ring both items that greatly increase usability.

The f1.8 50mm Super Rokkor lens on this particular camera should produce excellent images and the focus lever is weight just right for easy operation.

Aside from a little additional cleaning, this camera is ready to use.
