Minolta CLE

35mm rangefinder system • Discontinued



Lightweight and compact Minolta CLE was the world's first rangefinder camera with interchangeable lenses and TTL automatic and manual-exposure systems. Three specially designed lenses with focal lengths and speeds of 28mm f/2.8, 40mm f/2 and 90mm f/4 covered the range most widely used by photographers. Each lens was coated by the exclusive Minolta Achromatic process for maximum light transmission and contrast.
