The Olympus AF-1 Twin (Infinity Twin in the US) of 1988 had a biaxial (twin-lens) system so the user could switch between a 35mm wide-angle lens and a 70mm telephoto lens at the touch of a button. It also inherited the weatherproof design developed for the Olympus AF-1 (Nurepika) that was also used on other models in the Olympus AF series The AF-1 Twin had moulded plastic lenses, which Olympus used for the first time in this weatherproof series after the development of technology to overcome moisture absorption and other issues. A Quartzdate model was available.
