In the yard
Olympus Stylus Epic, Fuji Neopan 400. I replaced the Stylus Epic I used to have for just $20 on eBay, because it was the DLX model with a stuck panorama mask. Needle-nosed pliers fixed that! This is the 35/2.8 model with a spot meter, normally a little more expensive than I got it for. As you can see, the lens is sharp.
Now I have three clamshell Olympus cameras...the XA2, Stylus, and Stylus Epic. It's such a perfect camera design. I slightly favor the XA2 because I don't have to focus and it has no shutter lag, but I find all three useful. Indeed, they are all currently loaded with film.
