    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.
