Note: A standard or bounce flash is available as an add-on but most people won't need this as the camera features a small pop-up flash on its battery grip.

The circa 1986 Olympus OM-77AF (called the OM-707 in some countries) was the company's response to Minolta Maxxum 7000. This technologically advanced autofocus and motorized 35mm SLR would be the only true autofocus OM-series camera (but it's compatible with manual focus OM lenses). The included lens is a compact and flexible Olympus OM 35-70mm 1:3.5-4.5 (9 elements in 8 groups). The camera also includes the 'Powergrip 300' which features a small, built-in flash (it also includes a hot-shoe which can be used for larger flashes). 

Although Olympus didn't "win" the autofocus war against its bigger rivals (Minolta, Canon, and Nikon), the OM77AF remains a capable camera that's very fun to use. Olympus was so confident of its exposure technology that the company ran an unusual campaign in the mid-to-late 1980s where they would reimburse customers a  dollar for any "bad" photo they took with the OM-77AF (up to 24 of them... some people are incorrigible bad photographers by nature). 

Battery information

The camera and Powergrip 300 require 4 AAA batteries (not included).

Condition notes

We tested the camera's functionality, including autofocus and exposure accuracy and it is working very well. The camera and lens are in good cosmetic condition with some cosmetic wear (see photos).
