    I learned about the incredible optics of Minolta when I was in high school. A friend’s family owned a Fountain Square jewelry store, and sold Minolta. I borrowed a 101 and used bellows coupled with extension tubes to photograph fruit flies on straight pins for a girl’s science project. The pins became the size of nails on the final 5 x 7 prints. I also tested a used Minolta Autocord that a fellow student bought used. It was so sharp that I could almost count a girls eyelashes on Tri-X negs. A fellow photograpgher sent me a story about why Minolta lenses are so special. Too much to write here. Cheers

    • Bill, revisiting my photos from my 101 makes me think I’m way overdue to shoot it again. The 50mm lens I have for mine has some unique, lovely characteristics, for sure.
