Minolta XD7 w/ MD Rokkor 50mm f/1.7 Lens in Excellent Condition
Minolta's successor to the XE series as their top amateur level camera, the XD was produced from 1977-84. The influence of the Olympus OM series of SLRs is clearly evident in the size and weight reduction of the XD as compared to the XE. About 300 grams worth with their respective MD and MC Rokkor 50/1.7 lenses mounted. The XD also added a shutter-priority mode to the aperture-priority and metered-manual modes of the XE. The shutter is another beauty: the electronically-controlled Seiko MFC-E, vertical-travelling, 1 - 1/000 sec. with mechanical back-up of 1/100 sec., smooth and quiet. The viewfinder is still full-information, but now with LEDs as opposed to the match-needle of the XE and still retains the eyepiece shutter. The film advance is very smooth. Multiple exposures are now activated by pushing in the rewind button on the bottom of the camera. This camera has new light seals, been film-tested and the meter is accurate. The original shrunken leatherette has been replaced. The only wear is on the sides of the camera where an old hippie-strap with metal connectors rubbed them, and light finish marking on the bottom plate. The lens is in excellent mechanical, optical, and cosmetic condition with only some light finish wear on the barrel and takes 55mm filters. The camera comes with 2 new silver-oxide 357 batteries packaged separately and is ready to go. Combined weight of camera and lens is 755 grams.
