Minolta SR-T 101 1966 - 75

According to Annie Leibovitz, her first "real" camera was a Minolta SR-T 101, which she dragged up Mount Fuj without any film. Also in Japan, and about at the same time, W. Eugene Smith used a SR-T 101 to make his famous photographs at Minamata.

It is a real classic and the black bodies are a bit harder to find than the more common silver ones. Photographed with a 100mm/f3.5 TeleRokkor lens, mine is a 2nd generation SR-T made between '70 and '72. Click on an image to view bigger.
