A good reason to have an early-ish 101, Super, 303, XK etc, as you would need the MLU to use that lens. Looks like a keeper!

Thanks, appreciated. And I agree with you that without some sort of context of how an exposure index was determined, a bare number is not very instructive.

In the case of the top image, I had a spot...

You're welcome, Murray. You would have a fairly early black dial, then, I don't think the early screw placement lasted for a terribly long time. The 101 was released in 1966, I believe, so maybe...

Yes, the location of the top cover rear screws was altered. Different positions adjacent the viewfinder window etc. Not that I am any sort of expert on Minoltas, but I have read that at the Rokkor...

Thanks. Great information. I think an early-ish black 101 would be quite the thing to look out for!

SRTs used to be dirt cheap here in Australia a couple of years or so ago. On eBay at least, they...

Thanks. I'll keep my eye out for a black 101 at a friendly price, I think. And maybe a later SRT after that.
Were the black dial early models also made in black finish? Ie. black dial/black paint?...

Am I correct in recalling that some of the last 101s did not have the mirror lock up system as well? I believe I have seen a couple of examples on eBay which did not have it.

I found another MC 58mm f/1.4 for $20 last week. In good order after a clean. Have one for each of my SRT101s now.

Are they a good thing? I know next to nothing about Minolta lenses. A 135mm f/2.8 MC was in the job lot of lenses I acquired for free, that I passed on to my son.
