The L35AF was Nikon's first compact camera with autofocus. It was released in 1983, a few years after Nikon's competitors had opened up the point and shoot market. It was an immediate hit thanks to its robust design and excellent specification. It has subsequently become a cult classic among collectors.
At the time of its release it was given the nickname 'Pikaichi' ("top notch") in Japan. The lens was designed by Koichi Wakamiya as an update to the Sonnar formula and is a fantastic 35mm f/2.8 with autofocus from 0.8m to infinity. It has 5 elements in 4 groups, massively sophisticated for a point and shoot.
Exposure is handled entirely by the camera and is fully automatic. Range comprises EV 6 (f/2.8 at 1/8 sec.) to EV 17 (f/17.5 at 1/430 sec.) with ASA/ISO 100 film. The camera will not shoot unless the exposure is within parameters, ensuring you always get a good photo.
This makes it an amazing camera for those who want to make incredibly high quality images without worrying about exposure or settings. It's an artistic machine, for creating beautiful shots and having fun.
Film Speed Range: ASA/ISO 50-1000.
It will be carefully packaged and shipped immediately.
