I would venture to call this camera the perfect introduction to analogue photography. The full manual control forces you to learn exposure, and the classic match-needle light meter is the perfect balance of intuitive and challenging to learn with.
Beginning development in the mid-1960s, Minolta’s SR-T line was a jump forwards for the company and created lasting impressions for the brand. Namely, the introduction of a match-needle through-the-lens CLC light metering system that worked with the lens wide open for a bright viewfinder made these cameras a breeze to use from day one. The SR-T 201 was marketed as a consumer-oriented model in the line, introduced in 1975 and sold through the early 80s.
