The Optima Reflex (also sold in some countries as the Agfamatic Reflex) is a 35 mm TLR camera made by Agfa from 1961-66.[1] It is an improved version of the Flexilette, with an eye-level pentaprism viewfinder instead of a waist-level finder, and with a selenium lightmeter supporting programmed automatic exposure. McKeown states that this is designed to favour fast shutter speeds at the expense of aperture.[1]

The camera has coated a Color Apotar 45mm f/2.8 lenses, and a Prontor shutter with speeds 1/30 - 1/250 second, plus 'B'.
