Minolta X-370 with an MD ROKKOR – X 45mm f 2.0 lens
I am slowly working my way through a large variety of film-era camera gear that I have decided that I will never use. I have also decided that I will likely never have a camera museum or retail store where I can publicly display the many different camera lenses and camera bodies that have come my way over the years. They are slowly, but surely, being put up for sale for someone else to enjoy or collect. Before selling them though, I am photographing them and posting those images here in our blog for nostalgia purposes, if for no other reason.
The Minolta X-370 was a single lens reflex camera which used the Minolta SR bayonet mounting system. Lenses such as the MD ROKKOR lenses are so-named because they have an additional tab to allow the reading of the smallest available aperture. Adaptors are available to allow the SR/MD line of Minolta lenses to be operated as manual focus lenses in the Sony E mount as well as Micro 4/3 digital cameras.
