Minolta was the only camera maker that created a new autofocus SLR camera system with a complete set of new lenses for the APS film system. Only three camera models got the lens bayonet that fits for these precious lenses: The Minolta Vectis S-1, the Minolta Vectis S-100, and the digital SLR Minolta RD-3000. All automatic control signals are given electronically to the lens barrel. Camera body and lens, both sides have the necessary electrical contacts. The image shows the Minolta Vectis S-1 with the 1:3.5/50mm macro V-lens. The system flash SF-1 bears a macro diffusor, and the lens is focused to nearest distance (23mm, magnification 1:2) .
