The Cosina AF-35 is a compact camera for 35 mm film, introduced by Cosina in 1979. It belongs to the first generation of autofocus compact cameras and uses the Visitronic autofocus system by Honeywell, like the Konica C35 AF or Flash Fujica AF, but unlike the two latter the AF can be switched off and zone focusing can be used instead. Another noticeable detail is the pop-up viewfinder.
The camera was also sold by Petri, labeled as Petri 35AF-F.
