AFL-T or Quick Shooter Tele, released in 1986, was Olympus's first camera with twin focal lengths, following in the steps of the Fuji TW-300 and Konica MR.70. A front switch, also serving as on/off switch, made the lens jump out from its 36 mm position to a semi-telephoto position of 60mm. The lens is unusually fast for its class, going from f/2.8 in wide mode to f/4.5 in tele mode. Like the rest of the AFL series, it is a fully automatic camera with built-in flash. The finder is uniquely situated below the flash at the extreme end of the camera. Its nickname in Japan was "Bōen Picasso" (Tele Picasso).
