The Minolta SRT 101 is one of the all-time classic mechanical 35mm film SLRs famous for its tank-like all-metal construction. The included lens is a fast and very sharp Minolta MC Rokkor PF 55mm f1.7 lens (6 elements in 5 groups).

It features Minolta's CLC (contrast light compensator) light meter circuit for excellent exposure accuracy in normal shooting conditions. 

The camera requires a 675 zinc air battery for its light meter (optional).

Condition notes
The camera is in very good cosmetic condition (see photos) and excellent working order. We tested the camera and lens with film and the photos were sharp and correctly exposed. We also verified the camera's shutter has very good accuracy for all speeds. There is a small amount of dust in the viewfinder (does not affect photos) which we did not find distracting. The included ever-ready case is good condition with some wear (see photos).
