    Favor to ask all Minolta manual focus 35mm Users

    A big hello to all the Minolta manual focus 35mm users here.
    I am working with Antony Hands to expand and improve the Rokkor Files in the near future. I would like to have your advice on a piece I wrote on the X-370 before I submit it to go "live".

    If any of you would like to take a look at it and give me your comments and critiques, I would be happy to email you the word document (with photos embedded).
    Just send me a PM here with your email address, and I will send the file.
    Hope to hear back from some of you,
    Jed

    Thanks for taking the effort to update the Rokkor Files. It was one of my favorite sites when I entered into the wonderful manual Minolta world a few years ago. I like the system so much that I now have 8 bodies and about 20 lens. Unfortunately, i never used X-370. I only have X-700 and X-570, so I am not sure if i can help you with your article or not.

    Thank you for The Rokkor Files. I have around 20 Minoltas, but not the X-370.

    Great to see this site I have literally in the last week picked up a very cheap SRT101b and am looking to get some lenses for it to add to the 28mm Rokkor that came with it

    Thank you all for the kind comments. I cannot take credit for the site - it is literally hundreds of hours of work on Antony's part. However, at this point we are realizing that most of the manual Minolta sites have vanished or are no longer in use. There is a need for this information to be available to the group, and I am helping Antony with revamping the site, updating and filling in gaps in information where we can. A new look will be coming this spring (we hope).

    Thanks to all who requested the article, I look forward to your comments. I will also be doing an XE review, which I am currently in the middle of. If any of you have specific information on the XE (XE-1, XE-7 depending on market location), please PM me and I'll include it!

    I used an X-370 for several years (it's still around here somewhere). I don't know how much help I could be, but PM me if you think I can be.

    I value the Rokkor Files when it is time to consider more Minolta MF gear. I have stalled a bit on that as of recent. LF bug has me for the time being, and MF was it's precursor.

    I got the first lead on why I would want a x-570 there after my x-700 took a swim. x-570 meters so much cleaner in manual than the x-700 did. Now I own two ( or is it three , but two work... my GAS is showing).
    my real name, imagine that.

    I know nothing about the X370, but I want to express my thanks to you and Antony for all the work you've put in.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.
