Beautiful clean example of a very fine Minolta lens.
The MC-X series was an interim series that Minolta manufactured between 1973 and 1976 and bridges the gap between the MC series and the MD series.
This range of lenses was designed to complement the new X1/XK/Xm series of professional cameras.
The biggest change in the lens look and feel was the rubber grip and the black aperture ring to assist with the aperture readout window.
Considered by many to be the zenith of Minolta lenses the MC-X series are beautifully constructed being almost entirely metal and with superb handling. Later MDs may have better anti-reflection coatings but nothing tops the quality construction of the MC-X series.
This Minolta MC W.Rokkor 35mm lens was found in mint condition and as its is fully working and almost unused with very smooth operation throughout so no serious restoration was carried out. It would be impossible to improve on perfection.
We have replaced its missing read bead alignment tab and sourced original end caps and lens hood for it to make it perfect for its new owner who will hope will treat it with utmost respect. It’s very beautiful and worth treating well.
Please be aware that the cameras and lenses for sale can be up to 50 years old. They have been serviced and/or checked and are always as good as they can be made, but please don’t expect them to be flawless as if they were made yesterday.
All lenses of this age exhibit some small particles of dust and coatings are not up to modern standards. Cameras will exhibit some wear signs and likewise may have small dust specks in their viewfinders or focus screens. These do not affect the picture in any way.
ANY problems or issues will be described in the main text which you are advised to read carefully.If you are unfamiliar with film cameras we suggest you do some online research and read the manuals which are freely available from online resources.
We are enthusiastic film fans and spend our time hunting cameras and lenses that have been or are being unloved. We then spend hours to bring them back to fully working and clean condition, ready for a new lease of life with you We always change the film seals, give the camera a clean/service and make sure its fully working before we sell it on to you.
Most lenses are cleaned, re-lubricated and all of their functions checked prior to sale so you know they will work, full details will always be in the text. All items are packed safely for transit using proper packing material NOT something the cat was sick in.Having been stung both on eBay and by dealers alike who often know very little about film cameras we decided to offer people a chance to experience film using a camera that will last for many years and which we can say for sure works reliably
