    Hello All,
    Anyone out there that can help align the rangefinder on this specific camera? I have the top of but am unsure which screws do which adjustment. Is there also anyone who fixes them?
    Thanks
    Arthur

    There was a post in the Photo.net forum asking about AL's rangefinder adjustment last month.

    It seems AL's rangefinder alignment is prone to be off. When I find a post about the AL, It is usually about its rangefinder adjustment.

    I hope you'll succeed adjusting it and enjoy this fine Minolta of old.:D

    You don't need to take the top off. There is a round port on the top plate for accessing the adjustment screws. Twist it with a rubber stopper and it can be removed. The screws are below it.
