Message 874094 - Posted: 9 Mar 2009, 17:52:20 UTC

I have a Miranda Sensorex f/1.8 I bought in late 1970 that kinda resembles the Minolta Maxxum shown. It has a focal plane shutter that goes from one second to 1/1000 by halves; and I bought three Vivitar lenses to go with it. I see "Macro" on that Minolta, and what could be a spacer to put the lens out so that it can take close-up shots. But that's only a wild guess. Maybe removing that spacer would put the lens back in and make the foot-and-meter graduations correct, but that is also only a wild guess. Just an idea. I also see on the front what looks like an extra lens that might allow those macro shots. Maybe that comes off for regular shots. Another wild guess.

I think I recognise the lens..... its the 35mm to 70mm F3.5/4 Zoom - I had one on a Minolta 9000 (with an expensive DataBack) and also used it on a Minolta Dynax 7000i. Good lens.
