Konica Autoreflex T

This is a superb Konica camera, very well made??, very solid. Its Hexanon 57 mm lens with an aperture of 1.4, is made ??of metal. Certainly, the set is heavy, but not exceptionally for the time.

The first version of this camera marked its time (1968) because it proposed for the first time the TTL metering and automation (speed priority) on a focal plane shutter box (thanks to JJG).

Two cells provide measurement of light through the lens and this regardless of the focal length. This may seem outdated today, but the TTL was innovative in its time.
On the aperture selection ring there is a graduation marked EE. Once this position is selected, the choice of the speed, with the wheel located on the hood, determines the selection of speed.

Here is presented  the evolution dated 1970. It is distinguished by the presence of a trigger button lock. it is also called T2. The lens is contemporary of the first version, recognizable by the color of its ring. This lens will not be manufactured as such from 1970 (thank you again JJG).
