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|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.

The Olympus AF-1 Twin (Infinity Twin in the US) of 1988 has a biaxial (two-lens) system so the user can switch between a 35mm wide-angle lens and a 70mm telephoto lens at the touch of a button. It also has the weatherproof design used on the other models in the Olympus AF series. The AF-1 Twin is the first model in the AF series with moulded plastic lenses; Olympus had to overcome moisture absorption (for a splashproof camera) and other issues. A Quartzdate model was available.
