Minolta MD Tele Rokkor 200mm f/4 in Excellent Condition
Minolta introduced its 200mm f/4 design in 1975 in MC Rokkor form to replace the 200mm f/3.5 and f/4.5 lenses. Featuring low dispersion glass in a 5 element design it did just that. Performance from wide-open is superb. It was updated to MD Rokkor in 1977. All that changed was that the aperture blades were lightened to make sure that stop-down was fast enough with the new final check metering of the XD series of cameras and the aperture ring was made from plastic instead of metal and minimum aperture of f/32 is painted green to match the shutter priority setting on XD bodies and later Program on the X-700. In 1978 the filter ring size of 55mm started to be engraved on the inside of the filter ring. This example dates from 1978 to 1979 and is in superb optical and mechanical condition. Cosmetically, it is in excellent condition with some minor finish wear on the pull-out lens hood and rear mounting flange. Weight is 520 grams. Comes with front and rear caps.
