The XG-M was released in 1981 (called the X-70 in Japan), and was the top model in Minolta's XG series. The M denotes a 3.5fps motor drive mounting capability. The metering remains active when the camera is in manual mode, and there is a depth of field preview button. Shutter speed information is displayed in the viewfinder (via series of LEDs) along with an aperture-reading periscope.
