The Minolta Hi Matic 7sII, introduced in 1977, is a versatile 35mm, shutter-priority rangefinder camera. The camera is very similar in most respects to the Vivitar 35ES, Revue 400SE and Konica Auto S3, and is believed to have been built by Cosina for Minolta. The difference to the other very similar rangefinder cameras built by cosine, the 7SII offers also fully manual control.
The 7sII has a fast (f1.7) 40mm, six-element lens that has garnered a reputation for extremely sharp and detailed images.
The claim that the lens was made in cooperation with Leitz cannot be refuted either: The 1:1.7 – 40 mm lens was built by Minolta in cooperation with Leitz (Leica) The lens was called „Elcan 40“ (for Ernst Leitz, Canada).
