Minolta F.W. Rokkor-QF 1:5.6 f=200mm lenses
#5
FWIW, "Rokkor" refers to Mount Rokko in Japan where the Minolta HQ used to be.

Cool name and a bit strange that they abandoned this in the 80s.

The Minolta history of the 60s/70s is actually quite interesting. It's hard to believe today but during this time, they were actually leading the pack it seems. They had their own glass manufacturing and were the first with more advanced coating - as well as meter coupling. BTW, MC Rokkor means meter-coupled, not multi-coated (which they were as well).
