Normally I don't both to put up camera ads, but info on the SR-2 is hard to find, and often inaccurate -- even at Minolta sites! So, here is the beef.
This, the first Minolta SR-2 ad in American photo magazines appeared in June 1959. Notice only three lenses are listed at the time of introduction. The 55/1.5, 180/2.5, 250/4, motor drive, and stereo attachment announced with the camera never made it to the production stage, so far as I have been able to determine.
This is the second SR2 ad, appearing in American Photo magazines in September 1959. Notice the explanation of the SR-2's "automatic" diaphragm, and the promised lenses and motor drives which never arrived.
