    I used an L35AF for my entire trip this summer when my Minolta SLR went belly-up the first day out. I used Elite Chrome 100 & 200, and most of the shots turned out sharp and exposed much better than I would have expected. In fact, when that camera died last week , I went out and bought myself another one. It has become my go to camera for quick shots or places where an SLR won't work.

    I played with an L35AF for a little while. Got it out of the $1 bargain bin at a local camera shop, because it looked like a dinosaur of the 80's and had a busted battery lid. I wrapped the battery lid with gaffer tape, and went shooting! The lens is sharp and amazing. Considering the original price of this little monster, I'm sure Nikon put their latest matrix metering and AF logic in it as well. The metering was just as good as my Nikon F80.

    I ended up passing the camera along to fellow enthusiast, but I wouldn't hesitate to pull another one out of the bargain bin if I see it again.
    My other camera is a Pentax

    I started my son with an old Zeiss Tengor 6x9 box camera when he was 6 year old. He liked it, but he complained that his photos were not as sharp as mine. So now he uses a Nikon SLR.

    Is the T5...

    still a 35mm f3.5? Or is that one of the zoom T*s? Either way, for $3+ you're WAY ahead of the game!

    AF fixed focus lens.....Yashica T5D with data back and also waist viewfinder, Carl Zeiss T* Tessar 3.5/35...with case, all in excellent condition.
    Dunno why they are reaching up to £120 on Ebay (on completed listings) as the other P&S that I have e.g. Canon, Nikon, Minolta, Konica give very good results.

    Heck yeah, L35AF love! I think it's still one of the undiscovered gems on eBay... an awesome quirky (and very 80s) camera with a very nice lens whose price hasn't been jacked up by the Lomo crowd. I've got two, one of the early models and one of the late (the only difference being that the late model has a max ISO setting of 1000, versus 400).

    According to Nikon it is a very good Nikkor design. 5 element Sonnar pattern. The designers got very pi??ed off with people dismissing it as only a Nikon.

    I have a Nikon L35 AF it's a very fine all metal compact with a good lens, the only issue I have with it is the automatic flash in low light conditions pops up of it's own volition and flashes at the most inopportune moments.

    Awesome camera. It's perfect for children. I used mine for such till strange mechanical shutter lock out issues stopped it from functioning.
