    Minolta's ultimate "hunk of glass", it weighs in at over 23 pounds! It's a mirror lens, but it is unusually large and heavy due to the super-fast aperture -- f/6.3

    The exposure is changed with the shutter speed and ND filters. Built-in yellow, orange, red, UV & ND filters. Rack-and-pinion focusing.

    Stats:
    FOCAL LENGTH: 1000mm
    f-STOPS: 6.3---
    PERIOD: 1958-1966
    INSCRIPTION: MINOLTA RF ROKKOR 1:6.3 f=1000mm
    DESIGN: 7/6
    FILTER: 49/200
    DIAPHRAGM: fixed
    MC: no
    MD: no
    MINIMUM FOCUS DISTANCE (M.F.D.): 100'
    SIZE: 8.5"x17.7"
    WEIGHT: 23lb. 7oz.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Peter ... were you around 8 or 9-years-old, like I was, when they quit making it? LOL

    Now, that is some old glass, to be sure. I don't even think there was an SLR to mount it, with no MC or MD mount available.
