Minolta Riva Zoom 75W

This was also known in the USA as the Freedom Zoom Explorer EX. It was an upgrade of the Riva Zoom 70W, and the specifications quoted above for lens construction and shutter speeds are for the 70W.  The lens has eight focal lengths, but they are not identified either on the LCD or the lens barrel. The camera will focus to 35 cm at 28 mm (auto) or 31 cm at 75 mm ('macro') measured to front of lens. It is very quiet and beautifully made.
