The Olympus Infinity (sold as the AF-1 in most countries outside the USA) is very underrated and high-quality mid-80s point-and-shoot 35mm camera. It’s the missing link between the earlier XA series cameras and the Stylus/Mju series. The 35mm Zuiko prime lens is as sharp as you’d expect. In my testing, the auto focus performed very well. The focus lock feature is counter-intuitive but works very well (you hold down the focus lock and shutter buttons, release the focus lock to shoot or let go of the shutter if you decide to not take a picture).

Battery info

This camera requires a CRP2 lithium battery (available as an option).
