    Not too shabby at all!

    I quite like 3, 5 & 7 - What film did you throw through?

    The designation D: Zuiko indicates it is a four-element lens; probably a Tessar formula.

    Dear Lahnet,

    Excellent shots!

    The Olympus Trip 35 is a great little camera and can be relied on to produce sharp (as long as you remember to zone-focus first ), well-exposed shots (even at the beach on a sunny day or contra-jour). The only problem I have had is flare off the little UV filter that comes with the camera. It's fine if you somehow wrangle to have the lens in the shade while taking the shot.

    I have two of these (Aus$8-00 each): an earlier model (with silver metal shutter button) and a later ( with a black plastic shutter button). Both give excellent results. I have had the little strip of light seal adjacent to the film compartment door hinge professionally replaced (Aus $10-00) on the older model, as it was becoming sticky (though still operating OK as a light seal).

    I believe some 10 million were made and sold and the IQ is simply amazing .

    For casual shooting, you hardly need anything else!

    I ran a roll of kodachrome 64 through mine and it nailed the exposure. I was quite surprised at how good the slides looked. I just noticed that the viewfinder allows you to view the focus/aperture setting without looking away from the finder itself. I always like these ingenious inventions

    Trip is a great camera. I've got one in very good condition. Tripman.co.uk is a good source for all sorts of accessories for your Trip.

    My father had a trip 35. He always shot agfa slides; most of them are nicely exposed, except some made in difficult light conditions, specially dim lighting.
    The tessar formula seems to be sharp. Ken Rockwell compared the Trip 35 to a D* EOS 5D with expensive glass. The trip lens is a bit sharper and without chromatic aberration in the corners!
