Pics of the 200/4 Celtic MD (at left, SOLD) & 200/4 MC (at right, SOLD) lenses attached.
Note the MD has an integrated hood and the MC does not.
The MC has some small scratches on the tip of the barrel. The filter threads are still usable.

$39 gets first choice of lens, the filter, and the newer-looking case; or $35 without the older-looking case and no filter.

Front caps are NOT included with these 2.

Here are some sample images from the QF 200/3.5; these are SOOC except for scaling to 1600x1200 in GIMP; no PP was applied other than the scaling.
I've also posted a much larger set of SOOC full-res JPEGs and the RAW ORF files at
200mm Rokkor QF #1439713 - Google Drive

And some more samples at Showcase - Minolta 200mm 3.5 MC Tele Rokkor-QF

Some samples from the Celtic MD (sold)
Both are wide open & SOOC (using Oly Viewer for RAW->JPEG with no edits):

IMHO, this lens is sharp and has good to great bokeh.

more samples at Showcase - Minolta 200mm f/4 MD Celtic

Here's some sample images for the MC Rokkor-PE 200mm f/4.5.
All are SOOC except the ant image which is a 100% crop.

Bump -- These are good, sharp, fast telephotos for a great price!

Offers, Questions, Requests for more samples are all welcome!

International shipping available.
I'm thinking about picking up one, either a 3.5 or the 4.5.
I can get a good sense of the difference in size here, please correct me if these are not the respective lenses. Wondering how they compare in weight, don't need you to weight them necessarily just curious if they are close or if the 3.5 feels substantially heavier?

Hi Aaron, yes these are the Rokkor 3.5 and 4.5.
I’ll check on the weights, but I’m pretty sure it’s a noticeable difference.

online, one reviewer reports 775g for the 3.5 QF:
https://www.google.com/amp/s/lensqa...iew-minolta-mc-tele-rokkor-qf-200mm-13-5/amp/

Another reports 540g for the 4.5 MC PE:
https://vintagelensreviews.com/vlr/reviews/review-minolta-mc-tele-rokkor-200-mm-f4-5-mc-x/

Edit: Those weights are right, and the f/4 Celtic is about 560g.

Thanks

How much for the MC 3.5 QF please? And shipping? I am in NZ. Thanks.

Haven't bought myself a Christmas present yet!
Hi Rose, The f/3.5 MC QF is $39.
It's a bit under 3lbs packed, which would be $38.75 shipped by USPS First Class to New Zealand.
International Priority Mail would be almost double that.

Please PM me if you'd like to discuss further.

Thanks
