The Minolta A-2 was launched by Chiyoda Kōgaku Seikō in 1955 as the advanced variant of the Minolta A rangefinder camera for 35mm film. First it had a faster shutter than the Minolta A, and later it even got a faster lens. A characteristic detail carried over from the Minolta A is the speed setting thumb wheel in the camera top.


In 1958 the Minolta A-2 LT was developed, featuring a special bayonet lens mount. While it retained most of the features of the A-2, the A-2 LT had a Citizen-MVL shutter with speeds B, 1sec to 1/500sec. Two interchangeable lenses were made for the A-2 LT: a 45mm f2.8 Rokkor standard lens and a 100mm f4.5 Tele-Rokkor lens[1]
