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 therefore also the first in the L series. It was an immediate hit thanks to its robust design and excellent specification. It has subsequently become a cult classic among collectors.

A version with an “autodate” function was called the L35AD.

The L35AF was given the nickname ‘Pikaichi’ (“top notch”) in Japan.[1]The lens was designed by Koichi Wakamiya as an update to the Sonnar formula.[2]
