Little Vintage Rokkor Delivers

Last fall at a PhotoFair show I bought this vintage Super Rokkor 45/2.8 for Leica Screw Mount rangefinder. In reality this was designed for a Minolta Rangefinder camera that utilized the LTM mount as did the Canon’s at the time. I was not real familiar with this lens but I did some research and found that Minolta had 3 versions of the 45/2.8 and they also had 50/2 which was bigger and heavier but not “better.” These early lenses were branded under the name “Chiyoko” prior to using the Minolta name on lenses. I have mine adapted to Leica M mount so I can use it on my EOS R or my EOS M5 with a cool helicoil adapter.

  1. Hi Rod, delighted with your post today.. good to cheer me up the day before taxes when I am under some stress. experiencing the shut in syndrome but being waited upon by my children. you remember me from past Portland shows with my kids as helpers and sharing my space with late arriving vendor friends. Jim Basch visited with me last time I was there and shared his concerns about his health.I was happy to talk about my treatments and outlook. If you have an address or phone number for Jim he would enjoy my call. at 85 now I don’t enjoy long trips as I used to, and I must have help getting around. Old age is a bitch. you know my young attitude and always treat me super. keep it up and God bless, TED ROSENBALM
