The Yashica Twintec AF also branded by Kyocera in Japan, is a 1991 compact camera with two focal lengths: 33 and 53 mm. Compared to its predecessor, the Yashica DF-100 AF, it has a slightly shorter focal length, a slightly smaller aperture at wide mode and a wider aperture in tele mode, as well as being slightly smaller and lighter. The shutter is no longer locked to a single speed. A switch makes the lens move outward from its retracted 33 mm position while inserting three extra elements to achieve a greater focal length. A standout feature is the waist finder (similar to the Yashica T4) on the top. Its price upon release was 29 800 yen. In some markets, it was sold (with a slight body restyling) as the Yashica EZ Dual 35.
