Konica C35 AF
The Konica C35 AF (nicknamed "Jasupin") is a milestone camera in that it was the world's first production autofocus camera. Launched in November 1977, it used the "Visitronic" AF system developed and produced by Honeywell (see below for description). This was a "passive" rather than the subsequently more popular "active" system (which Canon utilized in the AF35M eighteen months after the C35 AF). Konica is said to have sold one million units. In 1980, the C35 AF was superseded by the C35 AF2 with some cosmetic differences.
