Minolta manual focus lenses are some of the most under rated lenses I can think of.

    Many folks over look the 45mm f/2 but, it is incredibly sharp, compact and light weight. Load with film and enjoy.

    I do love manual focus, I like manual! with auto.. it's harder to achive exactly what you want.

    Flash, Should I get one?
    It's a personal thing. Depends on how and what you shoot. I've used my flash maybe a half dozen times in almost forty years. Others use flash all the time and couldn't get by without it.

    BTW, the Minolta SRTs are great cameras. I still shoot the first one I bought in 1968!
    Also, a fellow named John Titterington (email: JTCamera@aol.com) is a great repair tech -- in case your meter gets stuck or the shutter bearings dry out. He's a whiz with SRTs! Very reasonable prices, too.

    The thing I like about the SRT and other cameras of this era is the match needle exposure system. You can see exactly what changing the exposure values will do. It's a great camera to learn on.

    Good solid camera, especially nice if you wear glasses.

    Found this page YEARS after it was posted, but John Titterington is still working on SRTs, and also occasionally sells them on eBay. In addition to cleaning them and making everything right, he also calibrates the meters to work with modern batteries, which is a far better alternative than the Wein cells most people use.

    I had an SRT200 with 45/2 back in the late 1970s, and just bought another one from John. It is OUTSTANDING.

    The 45/2 is my favorite car show lens, quick focus and very sharp.

    Great camera. Try www.keh.com
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
