Thank you both for providing the photographs of those cameras. There are several Minolta cameras that we may hear about, but not often do we see something that tends to confirm that they actually existed, or at least a prototype did. And, there are a couple of accessories I know about, but have never seen. Finding them for purchase is a challenge.
I also have a couple of Minolta models that were available only in the Japanese domestic market. It does seem that Minolta-USA did exercise some restraint in selecting what they brought to the North American continent for our acquisition and use.
